The current Ukraine regime is supposed to be a legitimate government and our ally, but what is holding them back?
Mysteriously, the Ukraine regime doesn’t seem to be able to get to the bottom of a massacre that we were told was inflicted by the previous “Russian” regime. In fact, some touted progress in the case is considered by others to be a mere publicity stunt.
This has dragged out now for four years.
That's because the government itself is founded on a crime – the ousting of the democratically elected President, Victor Yanukovich. https://t.co/P7KaSUI22g

The KyivPost reports, “4 Years On: No Justice.”
On the fourth anniversary of the murders of 78 EuroMaidan protesters on Feb. 18–20, 2014, Ukrainian authorities set up portraits of the victims on Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv. The authorities are also planning to build a memorial complex on Instytutska Street.
But there’s still no justice.
Law enforcers “should have done more,” President Petro Poroshenko said on Feb. 18. “At the same time, I realize the scale of the crimes, as well as the necessity of having legally sound evidence and adherence to all procedural norms.”
These solemn statements and commemorative ceremonies look like empty gestures to many people since not a single person has been convicted for murders during the revolution that drove President Viktor Yanukovych from power on Feb. 22, 2014.
Six ex-Berkut riot police officers are currently on proper trial for the murders but all the other ongoing EuroMaidan trials face constant delays or obstruction, said Vitaly Tytych, a lawyer for killed EuroMaidan demonstrators.
Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said on Feb. 18 that the in absentia case against the suspected organizers of EuroMaidan murders, including Yanukovych, ex-Interior Minister Vitaly Zakharchenko and ex-Security Service of Ukraine Chief Oleksandr Yakymenko, will be sent to trial after the high treason trial against Yanukovych is completed.
Yanukovych is currently on trial in absentia in a high treason case for urging Russian troops to invade Ukraine. Lutsenko presents the case as a major breakthrough while others view it as a publicity stunt.
