Ukrainian investigators have determined that on February 20th, 2014, the first individuals to be killed during the Maidan Coup riots were security officers, and not protesters.

Documents obtained by Strana indicate the time of death of 13 police officers who died between February 18th and 20th. And they show that on February 20th the first three policemen died between 8:10 a.m. and 8:20 a.m. Whereas the Maidan supporters were killed later that day – starting at 9 a.m.

This completely coincides with the investigation data, which are contained in suspicion to one of the shooters of the Maidan – Nazar Yuskevich.

The contents of that investigation documents have already been published by Strana.

According to it, Yuskevich and his accomplices opened fire on the police in order to provoke retaliatory shots and cause mass bloodshed, thereby disrupting the ceasefire, which the authorities and the opposition agreed on the night before February 19th, 2014, awaiting the arrival of the foreign ministers from France, Germany and Poland in Kiev on February 20th.

On the morning of February 20th, the mass killings began on the Maidan, which completely demoralized the authorized under President Viktor Yanukovych. The then president actually lost control of the Ukrainian Parliament that day and in the morning of February 21th signed an agreement with the opposition and withdrew the security forces from the center of Kiev.
