Contrary to what the mainstream media has tried to convince
you, it's not at all a mystery how the fire started in Odessa, Ukraine
and it's not at all a mystery who started it. We owe it to the victims
to expose what really happened.
On May 2nd 2014 over 40 people were murdered in Odessa Ukraine. Some eyewitnesses claim the real number is over a hundred. Some of them were burned alive. Others were strangled or beaten to death. A pregnant woman was among those killed.
I'm not going to show the images of the dead bodies directly in this
video because doing so would either get the video blocked or
age-restricted. In the description you will find a link to a page where
you can view those images if you are so inclined. I warn you though that
they are truly horrific, and should not be viewed in front of children.
Now the mainstream media and western politicians have glossed over
what happened that day. They've attempted to blur the chain of events
and have completely avoided condemning those responsible. Instead
they've blamed the anti-Kiev protesters and Russia for the violence.
Ah but what about the video that showed the anti-Kiev protesters firing automatic weapons during the clash?
You're probably thinking about this video.
This is the video that corporate media outlets broadcasted to the
public which shows what appears to be anti-Kiev protesters firing on
Maidan protesters on May 2nd.
Open and shut case right? These guys brought this on themselves.
If you just saw this clip that would be the obvious conclusion,
however this isn't the only clip that we have. We have quite a bit of
footage that the mainstream media isn't showing you, and that footage
tells a very, very different story.
Here's that same scene with the shooter video taped from another angle.
Now pay close attention to the people he's with. The red arm bands
these guys are wearing are supposed to symbolize the anti-Kiev
contingent. In particular pay attention to this man in the brown jacket.
Also take note of the padding that the man in the brown jacket is
holding in his right hand. This guy with the brown jacket is important,
and you'll see why when we show you the next clip.
This next clip I'm going to show you first once at normal speed, then
we're going to slow it down and freeze frames to point out important
Odessa Agent Provocateurs полковник Фучеджи by StormCloudsGathering
Now if we freeze this frame, the man in the back of the ambulance
that invites the police officer to get in looks a lot like the shooter,
but this is a very brief scene and the image isn't clear enough to hang a
case on it. However what we see next is very clear.
Remember the man with the brown suit and the odd padding that was
with the contingent that was firing on the other protesters? Here he is
again, helping a police officer get into that ambulance carrying that
masked man. Notice the men with red arm bands with him.
It turns out that we have lots of images and footage tying the police
to this provocation. The officer being escorted into the ambulance was
photographed and video taped from multiple angles.
identified him as Colonel Fucheji.
Here we see him and other police consulting with masked men who are presenting themselves as anti-Kiev protesters.
Here we see an unidentified officer giving instructions to a group of these masked men.
Why would the Ukrainian provisional government work with thugs
presenting themselves as the opposition. Why would they stand by and
allow those thugs to escalate the situation by firing into the crowd,
then flee the scene with them? Doesn't that strike you as a little bit
This is a very old tactic. The technical term, which has been in use
since the 1870d, is agent provocateur. That's French for provoking
agent. Authorities use agent provocateurs when they want to manufacture a
justification for a crackdown against their opponents.
And boy did they capitalize on that justification in Odessa.
The Maidan protesters, which eyewitnesses say outnumbered the
anti-Kiev protesters 10 to 1, headed straight for the opposition's camp
ground. First they burned down their tents. The anti-Kiev protesters
tried to put up a defense at the door, but the Maidan crowd began
throwing Molotov cocktails. Soon the building was engulfed in flames.
Here's what the scene looked like on the ground.
You can hear the crowd cheering as they set the building ablaze. The Maidan can be seen beating those who try to escape.
Here you can see a Maidan activist shooting at those trying to escape from the windows.
There was a fire station less than a kilometer away, but they didn't intervene for hours. Why? Here's why:
The Maidan crowd blockaded the fire truck and wouldn't let the firefighters operate.
It's not unclear how the fire started as the mainstream media has
been trying to convince you. Nor is it unclear who started the fire.
Here we see a group of Maidan girls doing their part by filling up
Molotov cocktails behind the scenes while the boys are busy using them
to burn people alive.

This wasn't a tragic accident, this was murder. One of the official Youtube channels for the Maidan (EuromaidanPR,)
uploaded this video right after the blaze where they do a walk through
of the building examining the corpses. They entitled it "Russian
Terrorists Burnt Alive In Trade Union Building Fire In Odessa Ukraine,
May 2 2014". They were proud of what they did, and they weren't the only
ones. WARNING: The video below is extremely disturbing. Do not click if you are not emotionally prepared to see it.
The following is a screenshot I took from a public post on Facebook made
by the Ukrainian Nationalist Iryna Farion who openly commended the
