Berkut Discipline

I’ve posted evidence of their excesses, now I’m going to anger some of my Ukrainian friends and post two examples of Berkut discipline.

I know how hard it is to control young men who feel threatened. My platoon in the 82nd Airborne Division would not have shown this level of restraint. We would have killed everybody. Of course, we had a different mission, different training and different weapons.

I want to protests to succeed. I want them to lead to a country with more local autonomy because local autonomy and competition between jurisdictions is one of the few ways to actually limit corruption.



Thank you, Andrii. So only some of the guys in the first video are Berkut, and none the guys second video are. Yeah, about that second video. Maybe that’s not discipline they’re showing. Maybe it’s cowardice.
