    Commenting on a Polish MEP's recent statement that the snipers shooting indiscriminately at police and protesters during last year's Maidan Revolution were trained in Poland, Russian Foreign Ministry human rights ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov stated that the truth about the tragedy is finally beginning to emerge.

    Dolgov, the Foreign Ministry's Special Representative on Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law, tweeted Tuesday about Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke's remarks that the Maidan snipers were trained in Poland:

    "A Polish Member of European Parliament has acknowledged that the Maidan snipers were trained in Poland, and not in Russia. The truth is finding its way!"

    Over the weekend, Korwin-Mikke, MEP and the leader of Poland's conservative KORWiN party, stated that the CIA and Polish security services organized the 2014 Euromaidan riots which resulted in the overthrow of the unpopular but democratically elected government of Viktor Yanukovych. The MEP noted that "yes, it was our operation too," adding that "the snipers had also been trained in Poland."
