Ukraine orders disarming of armed groups after shooting
World Bulletin ^ | 4/2/2014 13:23 UTC | News Desk

Ukraine's parliament on Tuesday ordered security forces to disarm illegal armed groups as police shut down the Kiev base of a far-right nationalist group prominent in the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovich after a shooting incident in which three people were wounded.

Ukraine's new leaders acted after Monday night's violence in Kiev city centre, conscious that an increasing criminal climate could discredit the anti-Yanukovich uprising and be used by Moscow's propaganda machine to show that law and order was breaking down in Ukraine.

The proposal approved by parliament linked a growing "criminal atmosphere" to what it described as "systematic provocations from foreign citizens in the eastern-southern regions of Ukraine and in Kiev" - suggesting that Russian agents or trouble-makers were stirring unrest in parts of the country.

"Parliament orders the interior ministry and the state security service to immediately disarm illegal armed groups," the motion said.

"Only those in the armed forces of Ukraine, the National Guard or the state security service (SBU) may carry arms," said acting president Oleksander Turchinov. "If they do not belong to the army, the National Guard or the police, they are saboteurs who are working against Ukraine."

Citizens as enemies of the state.

National confiscation of arms often comes before mass atrocities.

Absolutely right - disarm the citizens and the atrocities begin. The media is a mouthpiece for tyrants who divide and plunder. Everything is orchestrated so that they can justify their actions. My fear is that we are being set up in the USA for the same outcome by the same people.

This explains the right to bear arms better than our courts can.

The best way to make mortal enemies is use some group to do the dirty work to achieve your goal and then betray them.

I am sure who ever is running Ukraine at the moment is a Obama/EU puppet. This sounds like it has their brand on it.

Ah, the new freedom-loving, western-backed Ukrainian government sure is grand.

The same tactics were used in Egypt called the “Arab Spring”. Freedom from the dictator and democracy was in the air.

Until the dictator was gone and replaced by an Obama US backed Muslim Brotherhood puppet who was “ushered” in to impose Sharia law. So much for that “spring”. Instead they got “islamic winter”.

It was a no sale.

To this day Obama is still meddling in Egypt.

Now Egyptians hate us.

The Ukrainian government should reconsider their position and and deal with the problem by requiring anyone bearing firearms during a period of martial law or the present emergency to do so only while under Ukrainian military discipline. Ownership of the firearms could then be retained for the post emergency peace and make best use of the firearms during the military emergency.

Ha ha! Suckers. That’s what these fools get for teaming up with Globo-Marxists like Obama, Soros, and the sodomite EU. These guys die in the streets for their “revolution” and what do they get? Austerity, unpayable mountains of debt, and a knife in the back while the Globalist IMF gets all the national wealth.
