@ 4:20 — Paet laments that the protesters want real reform, not just a change of government.
@ 5:30 — Ashton talks about the importance of IMF. (perhaps not relevant)
@ 6:50 — Government think. They want a Ukrainian leader. Advice on how the opposition can seem legitimate – laying flowers.
@ 8:00 — Discussing another Oligarch Poroshenko for elevation to political office.
@ 8:20 — Mysterious information about the snipers. New coalition doesn’t want to investigate this.
Paet: “All the evidence shows that people who were killed by snipers from both sides, policemen and people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides. … Some photos that showed it is the same handwriting, the same type of bullets, and it is really disturbing that now the new coalition they don’t want to investigate what exactly happened. So there is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition.”
Ashton: “I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh.”
Paet: “. . . . It already discreditates (sic) this new coalition.”
It’s certainly alarming– The possibility that the snipers were instigators either from the opposition or the New World Order.
It’s unlikely / unimportant for two reasons:
1) Even before the snipers started their horrible killing, the regime already killed protesters, kidnapped them from hospitals, and resorted to many hooligan tactics.
2) This late in the protests, both sides had guns. So it’s possible that protesters were shooting police with the same types of weapons that police were using against the protesters.
