On May 9 we uploaded a video where Ukrainian soldiers who took part in antiterrorist operation, wounded a couple of pro-Russian activists and, as we thought, even shot one. As it appears, Russian propaganda and skills in sharing and creating disinformation managed to fool us and a great part of media society. We apologize for that misunderstanding. The picture looked very real and we were sure that Russia won’t speculate on deaths of people and their freedom. As it appears – Russian government is capable of doing everything including the creation of a theater performance that can fool lots of people.
To prove them wrong and to show that UKRAINIAN SOLDIERS DID NOT KILL EVEN ONE PRO-RUSSIAN ACTIVIST (we are not talking about the actual terrorists here who took their weapon and started shooting Ukrainian soldiers), here’s a documentary investigation with all the facts, people and scenario that had been played that day. This investigation material was posted on http://maidanns.blogspot.com by Nataliya Sarazhynska in Russian. We would like to offer you a detailed translation of the article. It is another proof that Russian media and Russian strategies can be very unpredictable and very cruel.
Mariupol, May 9.
It is hard to give a name to this event: a concert, a scenario, a circus, a mask show…
Ukrainian soldiers did not kill a single person on both videos.
Before the “concert” its participants try to play their roles as good as possible and start with attacking the armored personnel carrier. To make it easier for identification, all the characters who take part in the event have been marked with numbers and called names. Their aim was to warm up the crowd, to show their fearless intention and they are the first to “jump” under tanks.
#1 Red hoodie
#2 A polite one who turns to the people “Stop filming and help me out!”
People are going to stop tanks with the help of rocks
But what is that? There is something in man’s head, though – he was not attacked by anyone.
#4 – the actor
#4 Gives a command to start the show by putting his hands behind his head. he repeats the signal one more time for those he did not see him at the first time.
The whole crowd starts screaming. Woman #5 screams nonstop to create the required mood.
A trio of separatists that keep on provoking Ukrainian soldiers by getting closer and closer to them despite warning shots.
Activists are all the same and do all the same.
Separatist with a backpack – #6
#6 is the one who starts screaming first and very loud.
Separatists #6 with a backpack blocks and kicks Ukrainian armored vehicle.
Despite the characters who play there roles, there are almost no people on the streets.
There is a lonely car standing on the back that will appear in the play later on.
Kicking armored vehicles helps to create the required condition. Also, character #7 appears at the scene.
Act #1: Separatist-Kamikaze in a Suite
Characters #8 and #9 join the act.
#10 Separatist in a hoodie who is about to fall on his knees and start screaming.
#10 falls on his knees.
Crawls on his knees for beautiful picture.
Screams and cries.
Ukrainian soldiers are gone because they secure the movements of the armored vehicle. But separatists still come after them.
Two separatists come closer to each other (#10 and #8). #8 takes out a deputy certificate. his other hand is inside his pocket.
Pay attention to the #8. His hand is still inside his pocket. Also, look at the soldier in the background: he is simply holding the rifle but is not aiming to shoot it.
Shots were fires one second after that moment. #10 receives a bullet in his leg. Again – pay attention to the arms of the Ukrainian soldier. HE IS NOT SHOOTING! Grandpa with the package is also an interesting personage. A second after he will scare away from #8.
Now #8 walks away for the next part of the show
#8 walks away. Soldier standing behind him is not shooting. #8 has something in his hands and tries to hide it.
Separatist imitates falling and hides his gun.
Separatists with the gun falls on the ground.
Separatist #6 walks around with the open backpack. it could be nothing but it seems like he is waiting for the order and is ready to play his part of the show.
Act 2: Separatist and the Killer
When Ukrainian armored vehicles were crossing the street, new personages appeared on the horizon including #11.
#11 is an interesting personage because he came from the other side and when the crowd surrounded him, opened fire in the direction of Ukrainian soldiers.
#11 managed to perform 4-5 shots, very quickly.
A person who was recording this video in two minutes started screaming: “You, fascist! We are unarmed! have you seen any assault rifles or bats in our hands? And you are killing us!”
Not only separatists had guns but also Molotov cocktails were at their disposal. On the video a vocie behind the camera stops the separatist with the Molotov cocktail from throwing it.
A man who tried to provoke both sides.
#11 rushes into the crows and tries to disappear. His work is done here.
#11 heads to the Sarmat tent and disappears afterwards.
After the work is done, he joins the other people on the side watching the show.
Act 3: Dead Separatist
It is not an easy task to work at this events. Sometimes, separatists are asked to play dead people. The former president of Georgia M. Saakashvili about theater performances organized by Russians. “For 5 days Russian media fed its people with horrible pictures and war scenes. There were no war as such: explosions, dead bodies, screaming people – all that was just a picture from the movie. Georgian citizens and villagers said that “everything is fine here, there is nothing even close to what you are saying.”
After #11 dissapeared behind the Sarmat tent, for some reason people started gathering near that tend. It looked like they were getting prepared for something special.
Everyone (who did not take part in the theater performance) was surprised with their actions because at least there was a wounded #10 nearby who, by the way, managed to crawl on his knees a very long distance to get as closer to the soldiers as possible.
And this picture speaks for itself. A separatists on the left holding a chair and looking from behind the tent, in two seconds will be lying on the ground with a shot head. The only trick is that despite the bullet trajectory, he would have felt in a totally different way for a number of logical reasons. First of all, if the soldier on the background would have opened fire at that moment, he would have killed at least 3 separatists standing in front of the sky hiding behind the tent. Also, it does not seem logical to shoot a person whom you barely see or do not see at all. But even if the bullet would have reached separatist in the position shown on the picture, his body should have felt on the sidewalk. Instead – it appeared behind the tent.
Unlike the expectations, body fall accurately behind the tent and hitting him directly in the back of the head (even though he was facing the soldiers). It is also important to mention the people standing, sitting and lying on the ground near the “shot” person. They also have their own roles and wait for the command to play them well. Look at the man on the left side. In a few seconds he will be “shot” in his legs, even though it is impossible to wound him exactly in hi legs because of the people covering the bullet trajectory and the sidewalk.
Separatist waits for command and falls down.
#7 and the woman check if others are playing the way they should instead of calling the ambulance (woman keeps her phone in her hands). They are not shocked or concerned – they are bossy.
The number of people recording the dead body is shocking. They all make sure to take a good picture for Russian channels. At the same time, non on is calling ambulance or else even though almost all of them are shooting on smartphones. Also, some of the behaviors surprised even more than the shooting itself: it seems like people are not afraid of the dead body and step over him with no problems. If you remember the grandpa standing beforehand near the deputy #8, he steps over a man with a hole in his head without a problem as if it was a simple obstacle and not a dead body.
I am not a coroner but despite the realistic play, his death does not seems to be real. If the body would have been shot in the position the man was standing (hiding behind the tent), the whole tent and people around his would have been covered with blood. However, it is not so. There are only splashes from the fallen head into a prepared pool (this picture was taken only seconds after the body felt down).
Also, here’s a video on which this man who should be dead starts moving without any problems and appears to be alive. With a hole in the head like this one and so many blood lost, he would have been, unless, he was not shot at the first place.
Act 4: The Wounded Separatist
The wounded separatists is not that interesting character as the people standing around him. Based on the clothes from the first act, #10 was hot and rolled on the road because of the shot wound. Though, now he has a jacket of the wounded guy on him and hopes that people won’t recognize him.
Grieving ideological brothers
The strangest thing was that almost all people present at the scene were screaming “Call the Ambulance” but no one of them actually called the medics. The guy recording the video tried to do something and after he saw a pool of blood, rushed to the car driving buy and asked to help the wounded man and get him to the hospital. They took the wounded and started carrying him to the car. But a different car and there is a reason for that. This is the moment when #11 comes into play again.
#11 was the one who directed separatists to the right car and commanded to bring him exactly in that one. This was the only car parked in the area and it was also a part of the play.
Almost all numbers started carrying the wounded separatist to the car. Pay special attention to the woman.
These are the accidental or, maybe, not the accidental people who had been at the show but they did not throw themselves at the armored vehicles and did not try to block them.
