The US outlet, One American News, showed a piece called “The Ukraine Hoax”, looking into the underlying reasons for the impeachment against US President Donald Trump, Joe and Hunter Biden, as well as the killings at the Ukrainian Maidan in 2014.
The channel is more aligned with the Republican party in the US, and claims that the reason for the entire scandal surrounding US President Donald Trump allegedly looking for “dirt on Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden all started during the Ukrainian Maidan which was a prerequisite for Hunter Biden becoming rich.
The author of the piece is a former adviser to Donald Trump, political expert Michael Caputo.
More than half of the 50-minute piece is devoted to Ukraine.
In particular, it looks into the role of the then president Barack Obama and his administration in the removal of Viktor Yanukovych from power in 2014, about the executions on the Maidan, about the ties of the family of ex-vice president Joe Biden with corruption fraud in the Burisma company, the intervention of senior Ukrainian officials in the US presidential election in 2016 on the side of the candidate from the US Democratic Party.
In the video, there are special appearances by, the ex-head of the Ukrainian Security Service SBU, Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, ex-Member of Ukrainian Parliament Serhiy Pashynskyi, the ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili, ex-Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin and one of the ex-employees of “Berkut” Tamtura and the company’s lawyer Alexander Goroshinsky (who was also Yanukovych’s lawyer).
The video also interviews the so-called “Georgian snipers” and the Georgian general Tsitelashvili, who was one of the first to declare the involvement of some Georgian citizens in the shootings on the Maidan.
The documentary also shows a masked man, who claims to have fired on protesters and police on the morning of February 20th, 2014.
“The order was to shoot at Berkut and at people, provoke chaos. It started on the 20th at about 8 am … There were two of us. First, I opened the window, and my friend shot. Then we changed position, and I took the rifle. And so, we shot 5 rounds each,” the masked man claimed.
When the masked man was asked who gave the order, and from whom he hides his face, he responded that Saakashvili’s ally Mamuka Mamulashvili, who later became the commander of the Georgian Legion, recruited them for a trip to the Maidan.
They arrived in Kiev with fake passports. And according to them, Andriy Parubiy and Pashynskyi, who were also responsible for the situation at the Ukraina Hotel and for the supply of weapons, were involved in organizing the shooting on the Maidan.
Another Georgian citizen named Zurab indicates in the film that during the Maidan he met in Kiev with Saakashvili and Giorgi Lortkipanidze (the ex-head of the Odessa regional police), as well as an unknown officer of the SBU.
“When I met with Giorgi Lortkipanidze and Mikhail Saakashvili, Misha told us and the guys that we had a person who was from the Security Service of Ukraine. We were instructed to find Yanukovych’s regular routes. They were given the task to track the routes of Yanukovych’s movements. And they said they planned kill Yanukovych,” Zurab said.
The film claims that out of 45 people – Georgian citizens who were brought to Kiev during the Maidan, only 14 survived.
According to Michael Caputo, someone may be trying to get rid of the dangerous witnesses. Caputo also visited one of the rooms of the Ukraine Hotel, from where firing could have been carried out.
The former Georgian General Tsitelashvili, who was one of the first in 2014 to declare the involvement of “Georgian snipers” in the shootings on the Maidan, said in the film that people on behalf of ex-president Petro Poroshenko and ex-head of the SBU Vasyl Hrytsak had tried to come to him with a request to change his position.
“They contacted me. And they invited me to Ukraine on behalf of President Poroshenko and Hrytsak. They promised me financial well-being if I change my position. But I categorically refused,” said Tsitelashvili.
Michael Caputo, a former adviser to Trump, said the following:
“President Trump intends to give rise to investigations. And he has reasons for this.”
And he also said that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “should not pay for what his predecessor did – for interfering in the American election.”
Caputo also drew a parallel between the events in Ukraine and the attempt to impeach Trump, pointing out the same handwriting and involvement of George Soros, former vice president Joe Biden and other representatives of the US Democratic Party.
They, according to him, could provoke a protracted crisis in Ukraine due to their personal interests and contrary to national interests of the United States, starting with the events of the Maidan.
The situation, 6 years later is beginning to get into the spotlight in the US, all the while there’s numerous reports and testimonies of what actually transpired on the Maidan in 2014.
