The head of the National Television Company of Ukraine (NTU) has been beaten by members of the nationalist Svoboda party and forced to write a letter of resignation over allegations that his channel aired anti-Ukrainian content.
The office of the acting CEO of the National Television Company of Ukraine, Aleksandr Panteleymonov, was stormed by people who claimed to be members of the freedom of speech and information committee. What began as a loud conversation quickly turned into a fight.
A video of the incident has been posted online.

"Svoboda (Freedom) party members yelled at the interim CEO and beat him in the face, accusing the channel of a lack of nationalism and forcefully demanding his resignation.
Write your resignation! Sit down! I told you, sit down!, yelled one of the members while throwing punches and pushing Panteleymonov.
You are feasting in my Ukraine!...Here is a paper, pen, write the resignation now quickly, you animal...You are Moskal (a derogatory term for Russian) garbage!
He replied to the men, saying: I am not Russian, I am Ukrainian. But to that they responded: You are Ukrainian? You are sh*t! You campaigned for Moscow, you lied to Ukrainians for our money!
“And we have newspaper people on the payroll, don’t we, Tom? And they might like a story like that.”
Just saying, be skeptical of everything you hear, from BOTH sides.
You know what the first casualty in war is.
RT.com Putin’s own propaganda arm.
Reminds me of the Nazi propaganda before the invasion of Poland which depicted those “evil” Poles torturing those “peaceful” Volksdeutsche.
“You know what the first casualty in war is.”
“RT.com Putins own propaganda arm.”
True, but I’m more concerned by what the US Mainstream Media is refusing to cover about this, than what I am the Russians are saying.
If a Republican, oh say like George Bush, were in charge, they would be live with 24/7 updates about how the US was involved in this, and how badly he was messing it up.
Instead? Near silence....
It makes the Gay Media Messiah look bad, so it must be tossed into the fires of the Memory Hole.
Please stop drinking the Putin Neo-Soviet Koolaid...
RT is Putin’s propaganda arm here in the West.
Think. Anyone who knew Ukrainian could have easily made that video. The office would be a perfect setting for a propaganda film, since most offices look the same anyways, and since no one knew who this guy was before RT’s article, he could have been anybody. A plant, a defector (bribed, maybe?) or literally just some guy.
Anything the MSM says is a lie spun to prop up Obama and the Socialist left Rats, and anything they don't say is a lie of omission that they can't figure how to spin for Obama.
The Western MSM, False Witness and False Flag.
LOL! Exactly what Putin's been doing.
Mutual warnings. There is going to be a “misstep.” Has the kenyan actually given Putin the go-ahead on Crimea? His faint protests might indicate that they are formulaic only. Was his promise of more flexibility “after the election” more explicit in detail than we have thought? How much more of the old Soviet Empire might it cover? Are Russian bases in Latin America involved?
Both liars would let you believe that any Ukrainian who doesn't fit one of those descriptions is just a cartoon not a real person. Pay no attention to non-media-stereotyped Ukrainians.
(Moscow) Russian authorities have detained hundreds of peaceful protesters in recent weeks, in most cases arbitrarily and in some cases with unnecessary force. The detentions are part of a new crackdown on free expression and assembly as the crisis unfolds in neighboring Ukraine.
Rossiya Segodnya (official name: Federal State Unitary Enterprise International Information Agency Rossiya Segodnya; from Russian: Россия Сегодня, Russia Today) is the official Russian government owned international news agency founded by presidential decree on 9 December 2013. Rossiya Segodnya incorporates the former RIA Novosti news service and the Voice of Russia international radio service (formerly Radio Moscow).
Apparently not many realize that the propaganda doesn't matter. The Russians make up their own propaganda to justify the invasion of other countries and follow the old dictator playbook for the invasion of the same.
Three of the people in this film are Svoboda members of the current Ukrainian parliament.
“Ironically, one of the men involved in the assault was the deputy head of Ukraines committee on freedom of speech.”
Looks like everyone saying this was a propaganda video was completely wrong, unless you believe 3 Svoboda members of the Ukranian parliament were paid by Russia to do this.
I'm in and will take bets it is going to get worse.
These new Ukraine leaders are very very dangerous.
They won't last long at this rate however.
Nothing can be true about what Putin has said, you see. Otherwise they would not be able to enjoy the reliving of the adrenaline of WW2 or the excitement of a second Hitler emerging in Europe.
Do you speak Chechen?
They are difficult to interview while hiding in their homes.
They arrived before the Russian troops?
The Svoboda party was first called the “Social-National Party of Ukraine”, and remains a National Socialist (i.e., Nazi) party.
The video speaks for itself.
If RT reports the weather, the anti-Russians on here will call it propaganda.
Calling agitprop a bunch of BS is not nearly enough for me.
I have been wanting them nuked for over 55 years...
It appears to me that some folks have lost their minds supporting Putin for any reason.
According to whom? Someone at peoplesword.org?
oops . . . peoplesworld.org
Only if some neo-Bolshevik comes here to tell us that RT reported that Putin made the sun shine.
Oh probably by those of us who are not stuck in an outdated cold war armchair. And CNN international and much of Europe.
Wait a sec, North Korea radio is on . . . .
Yeah whatever. Spend some time in Europe and get back to me.
There’s a bright side to that, too—even the KGB/FSB knows how much time I’ve spent in Europe, so you don’t have access to that information. As for the latest in Russian newspeak, I get it from you here.
Nuke Russia to make the wold safe for gay marriege, open borders, multiculturalism and transnational finance?
So because it’s reported on RT it didn’t happen?
Exactly correct. Its like global warming. If the evidence shows the Ukrainian coup leaders as sons of Madison and Jefferson, its cool. If it shows them acting like the Nazis, it proves the other side is faking evidence against them.
There is utterly no option where the coup is basically national socialist and wears emblems of the Third Reich.
Its precisely the same game as no matter what the weather, it “proves” climate change/global warming is real. Snow, rain, hot day, drought, wind, still day, etc.
Maidan Nazis can throw paving stones, firebombs, take hostages, storm government offices, wear Nazi emblems, carry photographs of popular Nazi collaborators, be supported by Obama, Hillary, Kerry, the EU oligarchy, Soros, the MSM, and McCain, and that can only prove how dedicated they are to freedom.
Quite literally, there is nothing about them that can make their supporters pause and wonder why The EU, Obama and McCain are suddenly for freedom. Get it?
“Has the kenyan actually given Putin the go-ahead on Crimea? His faint protests might indicate that they are formulaic only. Was his promise of more flexibility ‘after the election’ more explicit in detail than we have thought?”
I’m wondering also, though admittedly I know very little about Russia. But those words Obama said to Putin seemed to be promising something...and also implied Obama already knew he would “win” re-election.
You don't think the Russians will fire back?
That's true. Like we did in Serbia and Libya.
I am sure that is somewhat true but I have seen some interviews of “Ordinary Joe” Ukrainians on the internet. If the MSM wanted to get their stories they could. The Russian media is state controlled, the U.S. media is just useless and corrupt.
Strange. I missed the news reports of having to go in to protect an American speaking populace living in Serbia and Libya to justify an invasion and annexation. Didn't know there was such a large American diaspora living along the Med.
Who said anything about excuses that sound that good?
LOL! Because the communists are not imaginative. They have to reuse the same tired BS over and over. Makes it even more amazing that folks eat it up.
I was amazed that anyone bought 0bama’s lame logic for bombing Libya into rubble. If they didn’t buy it there sure wasn’t any resistance to it.
Putin can go suck a plutonium popsicle but credibility is earned and we're running a little short these days.
First --- the Russians take over all the the tv. stations (in the Crimea, anyway) then they bitch about having something of the similar?
97 percent vote in the Crimea to join Russia? Huh? if you or any other cannot see the inherent problem with those results I would say they are either ignorant, or stupid.
That vote came about from a Russian invasion of sorts, troops without insignia empowering the ignorant mouth-breather Berkut and any other Russia-leaning whoever to go about intimidating any who oppose themselves -- while saying they are doing it to "keep order".
Do you know the Russians mined the border between what's presently left of Ukraine, and the Crimean? And they are letting Russian extremists create and man "checkpoints" in and out?
check out this group's other dispatches. They are there, capturing it on film. Go through about 10 of them, then decide.
Where did you see anything at all in posts that indicates that I give any credibility to RT or Putin? Where?
Of course, Soviet Socialist=good, National Socialist=bad, for some reason the Putinistas can't explain.

Up the Neo-Con Fascista Homos!
The liars are the Obama regime and the Western MSM.
