Russian Troops Arriving in Ukraine to Battle Protesters
UKRAINE (INTELLIHUB) — As the protests and uprisings in Ukraine continue to grow, the government is outsourcing troops from Russia to help put down protesters.
“There is information that at 1400 Russian Spetznaz troops were disembarking at [Kyiv local airports] Boryspil and Zhulyany dressed in civilian clothing and that they were going to dress in [Ukrainian riot plice] Berkut uniforms and proceed to the Madan” Rada deputy Andriy Parybiy, of the Batkivshchyna Party said at a recent press conference.
Government agents in Ukraine have had trouble contending with the the large numbers of protesters and have been resorting to the most brutal tactics in some cases. As we reported earlier this week protesters have been kidnapped from the hospital and taken into the woods where they are tortured and executed.
The protests began a few months ago as a resistance to trade agreements that would tie the country even closer to the European union, but now they have grown into a full scale revolution.
Despite an offer to release activists and stop more persecutions, the government continued a crackdown, with over 40 detained in the central city of Cherkasy after a protest, according to CBS news. Today it was confirmed that protesters in Kiev seized the Justice Ministry building where they set up barricades after forcing the police into retreat.
