During a press-conference devoted to the journalistic investigation about the true masterminds behind the murder of protesters and policemen on Maidan, the author Andei Veselov told reporters how difficult it was to find the key witnesses.
He looked all over Macedonia, Russia and Ukraine and finally found and interviewed them in Tbilisi, Georgia. According to Andrei Veselov, they later went into hiding somewhere in Armenia, because they are afraid that their former employers, two acting members of Ukrainian parliament, Sergei Pashinsky and Volodymyr Parasyuk, will put a bounty on their heads for uncovering the truth.
“They are afraid for their lives. Going to court and addressing journalists is their attempt to make the case public and thus protect themselves,” Andrei Veselov added.
On February 20, 2014 a snipers opened fire on protesters and police on Ukraine’s Maidan in Kiev, claiming the lives of 53 people on both sides. The current Ukrainian government blames Viktor Yanukovich for ordering the shooting, but the official investigation ran into a dead end
