A leaked conversation between the EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister, which has emerged online, appears to finger Maidan leaders as the culprits behind the Maidan shootings.
“There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,” Urmas Paet said during the conversation.
“I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,” Ashton answered.
The call was made after Urmas Paet Estonia’s foreign Minister visited Kiev on Feb 25. Paet also mentioned a conversation he had with a doctor who stated that both the protesters and police were shot at by the same individuals “And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,” the Estonian FM stressed.
