We call upon all Ukrainians and Ukrainian Americans to take a stand and protest the unconstitutional actions taken by Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych and his supporters in parliament!
On April 21st, Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych and Russian President Dmitri Medvedev agreed to extend the lease on Russia’s naval base in Crimea, thus handing over control of the Ukrainian city of Sevastopil to the Russians for at least another 25 years and possibly permanently. This agreement is unconstitutional as Ukraine’s Constitution clearly prohibits the stationing of foreign troops on Ukrainian territory, as specified in Article 17 of the General Principles. Furthermore, during the vote on April 27th parliament did not have a quorum and, suspiciously, some parliamentarians, whose votes were counted, were not present during the actual vote.
Thousands are now rallying in the streets of Kyiv in opposition to this blatant breech of Ukraine’s Constitution! We cannot allow for Ukraine’s freedom to be compromised. Today Sevastopil… tomorrow Kyiv!
On Monday, May 3, Kostyantyn Hryshchenko, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister will be visiting New York.
Join us in showing our solidarity with the freedom-loving people of Ukraine by protesting this unconstitutional act taken by Ukraine’s President and his supporters and demanding that the Russian fleet vacate Ukraine according to the original agreement. We cannot let President Yanukovych threaten Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence. Let’s stand up for Ukraine.
Join the demonstration!
On Monday, May 3rd from 5:00-7:00PM
before the Ukrainian Mission to the UN
located on 51th Street, between 2nd and 3rd Aves. New York City.
These alert fellows first reported on many details that are being confirmed only now, particularly the rise and fall of the jet as it failed to climb after the initial touch down. This confirms that the pilot could see the ground as it is obvious that the plane, including its colors, was seen from the ground.
But the follow up witness is interesting – not only could he not look into the camera, he concocted a story that sounds as if he saw the crash but did not see it because of the fog….but then realized it was a crash when he went home and saw it on TV?!??!
The first contact with the ground was the clipping of a small sapling. Now, it appears that the plane continued to descend and the wheels actually touched the ground as evidenced by these marks in the grass. Note the sapling in the background.
Why did this jet fail to climb enough to avoid 30′ trees a qtr mile later? And why did it touch down in a field with 500 yards of visibility?
The Sich High Command has conducted a preliminary investigation and notes these photos of clipped trees starting a quarter mile before the crash. How is it possible that the plane could not climb above these small trees when they are designed to climb 30′ every second?
Here is the first tree that was clipped in the middle of an open field. This tree is only a few feet tall and could have caused no damage but for sure, the pilots knew at this point they had to climb.
Yet for some reason they could not since they went on to clip more small trees and brush for a quarter mile.
Below is a picture that we developed based on the above link that shows a SCALED side view – detailing how a modern aircraft that was just upgraded by the Russians was not able to climb above small trees for a quarter mile before it flipped and crashed. Also note the 400 meter visibility line at the top of the picture. Given a descent rate of 300′ per mile, that means that they traveled for 4 miles or about two minutes while within sight of the ground they would eventually hit.
This was not pilot error.
PS: Check out the rest of the photos here and the picture of what really happened becomes clear.
UPDATE: This appears to show people climbing about the wreckage while there are gunshots!
UPDATE: Confirmation of earlier reports that portable guidance equipment that assisted Putin’s landing was not made available to the Polish flight. Also, perhaps an issue with the lights?
UPDATE: Here is an animation that demonstrates the planes inability to climb enough to clear small trees and brush – before it finally hit the tree that cut its wing. It now appears that issues of fog and language problems are irrelevent. This plane was not able to climb at the required design rate of 30′ per second.
of the accused
to the criticism of the court and the prosecution
of his behaviour during the trial:
I am personally thankful to the people, who are helping me in my hopeless position as a very ill person, be it in prison or be it here in the courtroom. Therefore, I especially thank the medical personnel, who are very helpful in alleviating my major aches and pains and who help me to survive this trail which for me is torture. As a matter of fact, I point out the following:
1. Germany is guilty, that through a war of destruction against the Soviet Union I lost my home and homeland.
2. Germany is guilty of making me become a prisoner of war.
3. Germany is guilty of creating prisoner of war camps where through purposeful denial of enough food rations I and millions of other Red Army prisoners were sentenced to die of starvation and only with God’s help did I survive.
4. Germany is guilty of forcing me to become a slave labourer of the Germans in the prisoner of war camp.
5. Germany is guilty, that in this war of destruction 11 million of my fellow Ukrainians were murdered by the Germans and more millions of Ukrainians, including my loving wife Vera, were abducted to Germany to forced labour and slavery by the Germans. Read the rest of this entry »
Where is the dense fog? Notice at 45 seconds, a very clear view of a field hundreds of yards deep. This confirms reports of visibility of 1/4 mile. How could the pilot not have seen the ground to avoid the trees? If this is an actual video of the crash moments after the fact, then serious questions have to be asked.
FINALLY, WHY IS THERE SHOOTING DURING A “RESCUE” OPERATION?
UPDATE: This video has been pulled from Youtube. Hmmmm. Thankfully we have some transcripts and some images and let the record note that the apparent shooting accompanied yelling for the “whores” to “get out”.
UPDATE: The video is back on with new comments
UPDATE: This story is finally getting picked up here, here, and here.
PS – notice all the trolls at Free Republic and the unending ad hominems at those who hear gunshots and see no fog.
UPDATE: This video appears to be legitimate. Here is a photo of Putin at the same exact spot.
Where's a Cossack when you need them? Tragically, their native steppes was the epicenter of the Big Bang of the 20th Century when the Kremlin stole the Breadbasket of Europe to buttress its failed experiment.
These Genocides of 12 million Ukrainians in 1921 and 1931 included several hundred thousand Mennonite and other fundamentalist German farmers that committed the error of settling amongst Lenin's and Stalin's enemy. Sad to say, this Genocide and Pulitzer Prize winning coverup did not go unnoticed by the equally depraved Hitler, who went on to commit the Holocaust 10 years later.
This is the Big Bang of the 20th Century because WWII and the Cold War were the tragic consequence of this unknown World War 1.5.
