A MORE LIGHTHEARTED LIST OF FEATURES BY ALEXANDER RUSIN:

How do we distinguish a real popular revolution from rallies of paid Russian terrorists?

The first sign of a true, people’s Maidan are porta-potties. If you see them there - then it's probably a good, real revolution.
When it starts, grandmas instantly bring pies, while grandpas deliver porta-potties. So that, right away, people have somewhere to run to after eating those pies.


The second sign of a true national Maidan is the stage. If you see a stage with famous artists performing - must be the people’s revolution, because common people always bring a stage and professional sound equipment with them!
If there is no stage - it’s obviously a pitifully fake rally of paid Kremlinbots.


The third key sign of a national Maidan are US senators. Once they come, it’s guaranteed to be a proper, people’s Maidan. Because US senators do not come to Kremlin-organized fake protests, that much is certain.


The fourth sign of an honest-to-god, grassroots Maidan is that it continues months in a row.
Because common people do not have to go to work - they live in tents, exist on Nuland’s cookies and porta-potties. And listen to artists on the stage. Or sometimes US senators. That's what normal people do. Only Kremlin-paid terrorists leave on Monday to work, to come back to the rallies next Sunday.

And the fifth, completely unambiguous sign of a true national Maidans - those are organized by major TV networks. That tells you for certain - if TV tells you to go, the protests must be a real grassroots movement, organized by the common folk themselves.

But if there are no TV channels that call the populace to a rally - then it must be a rally of paid terrorists. It’s just so secret, most participants are unaware that they’re being paid.

Now do you understand which rallies you need to go to? Only to the grassroots ones - the real people’s rallies!

And now look at the central square of Kiev. Do you see neat rows of tents there? Do you see porta-potties? A stage? Artists? US Senators?

You do not see these things? This is because they are not there! Because there are no national Maidans now! The independence is won, all requirements are met! People have achieved their goals!

You do not believe me? Doubting me? Looking at the plunging hryvnia? Want to go out and demand the payment of pensions, for working heating, gas, power, child allowances, healthcare, jobs, wages?

Know this then: if you go to a meeting without a stage and porta-potties - that makes you a paid Russian separatist! If shout you want to eat - without orders from a central TV channel - then you are no longer a real Ukrainian! If you are doubting the revolution - it means you are a hidden agent of the Kremlin, you just don’t know it yet!

Remember! Putin is crafty! He creeps into your hearts under the cover of darkness, cold, poverty and hunger! If you suddenly want to go to a rally, be careful - if you do not see porta-potties and a stage - then it's fake, not organized by the people, just a gathering of paid Russian terrorists! Be vigilant, patriots of Ukraine!

FROM THE TRANSLATOR - BACKGROUND:

The second article obviously pokes fun at the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2_May_2014_Odessa_clashes#Casualties by Kiev-controlled media (and the Western sources reprinting their stuff).

The post is very much based on current events, i.e. check out this excellent example of manufactured reality: Kiev-organized mobilization rallies where the public successfully voiced protest were painted as “Russian provocations organized from Kremlin” in the media (the end of the link also explains why Ukrainian media became like this):

Most recently, April 4th tire-burning attempt in Kiev, under the slogans of “PM is a robber!” and “Delta Bank SOS”, ended when the organizers were quickly arrested. One managed to flee but was tracked down and apprehended by evening.



The pattern is nothing unusual - anti-government rallies are normally quickly dispersed by nationalists and police alike:

Those that claim that this is “European” and rule-of-law should know that NeoNazis hold their rallies quite freely, run around with wolfsangel flags, topple monuments and beat up or kill those trying to defend them etc. (police promises to “look” for vandals it guarded during the act, and either declares deaths “accidents” or drags investigations on forever):
