Aftermath of the Sniper Attack

Latest images show street riots in Kiev on the morning of Thursday, Februray 20. News media has filmed protesters being shot at in front of hotel Ukraina as clashes continue in the Ukrainian capital. The number of victims is still rising, news agencies say at least 25 people have been killed.

The brutality of the Yanukovich regime took a turn for the worse. Yesterday, government snipers shot at their own people. At least 20 more are dead.

But the people began to shoot back. The police are only brave when they are safe. As soon as they were in danger, they ran. 

Not worth dying to save Kleptocracy. 

But 40 more died in the Trade Union building at the heart of Maidan. Police locked activists inside and set it on fire with Molotov cocktails. The big screen that lit up Maidan is out. 

In spite of the carnage, the people turned out in force today. Violence may work in Russia, but it doesn't work here. The more government does, the more people come out in protest.
