9:39 pm
house a building which would soon become a monument to a massacre of its own it's difficult to overestimate the importance of odessa it is strategically located on the black sea and it's ukraine's largest seaport it's not surprising that ukraine's new authorities were watching the situation unfolding there with growing alarm. more and more of odessa as people were joining the anti my don movement at the same time as events in eastern ukraine were heating up. the new ukrainian government didn't have the power to wage war on too many fronts if odessa were to join the growing uprising in the eastern regions it would seriously complicate the situation. this rebellion had to be extinguished immediately and at any cost and that cost was high. on may second two thousand and fourteen soccer fans flocked to the center of odessa city for the ukrainian championship match

9:42 pm
has been going on now for nearly two years and it's yet to reach a conclusion but it seems the experts and all the information they needed from the very beginning which i. really keep. it looks like odessa really is a very important piece of real estate as it was on earth with a very special new governor appointed on may thirtieth of two thousand and fifteen . really old friend of the united states and born and raised in ukraine. neighboring country ga. ga a quick look at his biography gives one an understanding that he's been groomed for a special mission. mr saakashvili received a u.s. state department scholarship and he worked for a new york law firm which represented the organization commodity
9:43 pm
a group that appeared earlier when we learned about the color revolutions and we're dealing with democratic blood blister aleutian this is the revolution of roses and this is me kyle saakashvili with camara busy overthrowing the legitimately elected president eduard shevardnadze. was. soon after the rose revolution blossom fully george announced its intentions to join nato and plant fresh nato military bases in the fertile soil right on russia's border never ever will give our freedom and independence never never will give any piece of our territory saakashvili is mission was accomplished at least with his friends and nato the georgian populace wasn't quite as happy though in two thousand and seven they took to the streets to voice discontent and mr saakashvili responded with force. the people's discontent.
9:44 pm
saakashvili party lost parliamentary elections and the opposition took control he sat this means that the parliamentary majority and new government the president. mikheil decided not to wait for the results of the president's election and fled the country in october two thousand and thirteen. it's been seventy years since the united nations that don't take universal declaration on human. rights but in many places in to remains a declaration and not a reality how to bridge the divide between practice and preaching. you know world of big part of newton's laws and conspiracy it's time to wake up
9:45 pm
to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth you long to be rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar

9:47 pm
a witness in several criminal cases later that same year he was accused of misuse of power and embezzle. saakashvili wound up in the us and soon his friends in washington found him a new assignment. mikail actively supported my down and very soon was rewarded with a high position in the new ukrainian government first as the president's counselor and then as the governor of odessa the day before taking this position he renounced his citizenship to georgia the country of these birth and became a ukrainian citizen. then the suggest others gordon could have done in the way explored that road in the cecil. gordon got it done in the way explored that road. as they say the battle is worth the blood both literally and figuratively. now do i not somebody affordable by the us out to class now tossed off on me on no

planes plane was indeed shot down by a missile while flying at a high altitude over eastern ukraine near the russian border two hundred ninety eight revised number of souls on board all feared dead it was a murder it was a crime there's been this odd nonchalance about pursuing the answers there was a record a very limited report put out a few months after the event but since then they said the next report will be on the first anniversary of the event but you deal with a criminal investigation before becomes a cold case so there's been this curious element of why is there not greater pressure from both the media and the the western governments to answer these questions but even without any answers the fingers were pointed immediately that's not an accident that is happening because a russian support evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by
9:51 pm
a surface to air missile that was launched from an area that is controlled by russian backed separatists inside of ukraine into these little bits of the earth and to put up a national into this test it's a question today kate of. the malaysian boeing wasn't the first plane to play a significant part in american russian relationships on september first one nine hundred eighty three korean airlines flight double zero seven from new york to seoul via anchorage was shot down by a soviet interceptor aircraft over the territory of the u.s.s.r. in the sea of japan there was absolutely no justified. haitian either legal or moral for what the soviets did the tragedy of the korean bowing was considered a perfect occasion to demonstrate the nato military power within dangerous proximity to the soviets on november second one thousand nine hundred eighty three nato launched able archer attend a command post exercise simulating a conflict escalation culminating in
