cretinbob: make me some tea: cretinbob: make me some tea: Holy fark, that building on the right is definitely on fire.

yeah, the one with the columns it looks like.

No, it's actually the one to the top center-right.

The view I posted is drawn back quite a bit more than the cam we're watching.

yeah, hard to tell. the windows on the trade building are too small.

sun will be up in a few more minutes


Sun will be up in 10mins.

When government buildings are burned, that's when things happen.

No, I mean like live TV coverage with some reporter talking about shiat that's going on, what they see...etc.  Even CNN isn't in English!

They are alternating between patriotic songs, prayers, and instructions.  They just told someone to call home because their family is worried about them.  Asked all to check in with family.  They need to build up the fires and warms up themselves up after a long, cold night.

They are using the height of the building 'Globus' to douse the people and fires.

Brave firefighters, standing there hosing down the fire while getting Moltav's tossed at them. :(

make me some tea: FEED IS DOWN


If it's the Ustream one, try hitting the play button again. I think it's built-in, in case people fall asleep, so as to save bandwidth.

The youtube espresotv with the little box with the news people in it isnt live anymore?  It still looks live to me.

From what I can see the Berkut have the height with positions on 'Globus' and the hill that goes up from Maidan to 'Hotel Ukraina'.  The protestors shown are in the 'U' shape with a line along Khreshatik.

Funny they are just using the roman candles as is.  I guess they don't really want to hurt anyone.

I heard singing in the background of the news commentators in the YouTube/Espreso live feed, which is still operational.

'Titushki' dressing like protesters, except for white ribbons on their arms
Feb. 19, 2:29 a.m. -- "Titushki" -- the armed government-hired thugs roaming Kyiv's streets early this morning -- are reportedly indistinguishable from anybody else except for white ribbon armbands so they can identify each other, according to numerous reports. Many "titushki" sightings have placed them in the center of Kyiv, but away from Independence Square, in such places as Lviv Square. The suspicion is that if police launch an all-out assault on the thousands of protesters on the main square, "titushki" will be in the neighborhood to assault any demonstrators who flee. -- Katya Gorchinskaya

From here, with live updates: http://www.kyivpost.com/content/ukraine/police-advance-on-euromaidan-f ollowing-a-government-ultimatum-live-updates-337067.html (remove the space, Fark chokes on the link).

This reminds me more and more of the Iranian and Egyptian uprisings; desperate measures of a government out of control. Or it's what they used to do decades ago, they just learned it from the Kremlin.

UStream feed is still up, but it's so smoky at the moment that you really can't see anything.

Interpretermag has a feed up from behind the barricades.

they are a bit bigger than roman candles, but yeah, they just bounce off the bunk gear. Looks like they retreated after the barrage

Those fireworks are adding a weirdly festive air to this chaos.

I hope the Ukranian people win this thing.

Wow, interpretermag has just updated some post from what they're claiming is the berkut's facebook page (though honestly I suspect that it's opposition agitprop) with some....*creative* statements on it.

"Translation: Vyacheslav Veremiy of the newspaper Vesti died in the ER. He was dragged out of a taxi on Mikhailovskaya Street. He was beaten and shot in the chest. I remember him from the newspaper in Kiev. He left a son, Maxim, age 4," says one of his colleagues."

fark Putin and his biatch Yanuko.  I hope they both get strung up before they retire.
 
2014-02-19 12:59:31 AM
The deceased man found on a bank of a river is said to have been journalist Vyacheslav Veremiy, apparently shot to death.
 
2014-02-19 01:00:47 AM
Wow...whoever it is that's making a speech right this minute sounds MASSIVELY angry.
