“There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,”Urmas Paet said during the conversation.
“I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,” Ashton answered.
Paet also recalled his conversation with a doctor who treated those shot by snipers in Kiev. She said that both protesters and police were shot at by the same people.
His overall impressions of what he saw during his one-day trip to Kiev are “sad,” Paet said during the conversation.
He stressed that the Ukrainian people don’t trust the Maidan leaders, with all the opposition politicians slated to join the new government “having dirty past.”

Leaked audio raises Kiev sniper questions: A leaked audio file suggests pro-Western leaders may be responsible for Kiev’s sniper shootings on February 20-21.
She should have said,’Let’s hope things don’t get to that stage. I abhor all use of violence.’ But she didn’t. She actually said,’ Lets’ not get ahead of ourselves.’ She knew what was planned for Kiev, and did nothing to stop it. Far from it.
She’s been in on the coup from the beginning. Putin is right to say the coup d’etat was illegal and should be reversed.
(That said, is he just another puppet too, given the task of ensuring war with the West ensues?)
