Distillation of What Ukraine Is Now

The story below has been carefully collected and archived by Alexander Dyukov, Russian historian, author and human rights defender, founder of the Historical Memory Foundation. My part was just to translate and post it here. Well, and to add the last line.

You just have to see it with your own eyes.

These are the former armed insurgents of the so called "Maidan Self-Defense Forces", nowadays the "Kiev-2" battalion of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.

They seized a man; made him undress; beat him; tied his hands and threw him into dirt.

It's Autumn; and it's not that warm round there.

They pose with their beaten and bleeding victim lying in the foreground.

They upload this picture in social networks — to thank the volunteers who provided them with the satellite access to Internet.

Other volunteers raise money for them.

Journalists of the TSN (a Ukrainian TV news service) organize an exhibition, at which show this image. The Minister of Culture of Ukraine visits the exhibition and promises to make a road show of this exhibition through the cities of Ukraine.

And that very gunman standing with his AK assault rifle above the victim, is on the air of the Ukraine Today (Ukrainian state TV channel for pro-Ukrainian propaganda in English) telling the Western audience about the 'Russian propaganda". No kidding; here you are, just watch it yourself:

Ukraine Today, Special Battalion "Kyiv-2". Posted by Kyiv 2 battalion on September 11, 2014.
This Dmytro belongs to the Ukrainian 'creative class', being the CEO of a local advertising agency.

That's all you need to know what Ukraine is today.

Hear this, you foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear.
