Release of Secret Phone Conversation Reveals Bombshell Claim: Ukrainian Opposition Leaders Killed Their Own Supporters With Sniper Fire
Mar. 5, 2014
The Estonian foreign affairs minister allegedly told the European Union foreign affairs chief last week about a claim that leaders from Ukraine’s opposition were behind the sniper fire that led to the deaths of more than 70 of their supporters, according to an purported phone conversation uploaded to YouTube Tuesday.
Urmas Paet confirmed the recording of his conversation with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, according to the Russian RIA-Novosti news agency, telling reporters that the recording was authentic. In his phone conversation with Ashton, Paet said he received information that the snipers who shot at protesters and police in Kiev were hired by leaders in Independence Square.
In the alleged recording Paet says: “There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition.”
