Urgent appeal from Ukraine's Civil Society to EMBASSIES, EU, UN, GOVERMENT OF EVERY DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY - YOUR URGENT REACTION IS NEEDED!

In the morning the Speaker of Ukraine parliament Rybak refused to register the opposition draft decree on return to the 2004 Constitution, which caused rapid escalation of the situation on the street.

As for 18:00:
- 3 people are dead in the Profsouz building. 7 more deathly wounded;
- 2 people (older man and woman) found dead near the Khreschatyk metro station (on Institutska street);
1 person killed near the National Bank building;
BBC claims that the headless body of one more victim was near the Parliament building;
- 14 journalists beaten today;
Kyiv is BLOCKED: all underground stations closed, central roads blocked, road out of Kyiv blocked;
Since 18:00 THE STATE OF EMERGENCY is in action. Everyone who is at the Maidan is the extremist - Internal Ministry official statement;
- Maidan crackdown started. Riot police is using grants, massively throws Molotov cocktails on the Maidan tents from the mall which is situated above. BBC journalists claim that internal troops are armed with Kalashnikov automats. Lot of police using unnecessary brutal force against people in the streets;
- more than 500 people injured. A lot in the hospitals. In hospital No. 17 (Laboratornyi 17) more than 70 wounded people;
on Hrushevskogo street "titushky" started robbing houses and people who are passing
riot police is closely coordinating with "titushky", those are with weapon. A lot of snipers are on roofs. Bulets from the weapon police used are all over

We ask Embassies, European Parliament, PACE, OECD, UN and Government of every country for URGENT REACTION:
1. Those who are in Ukraine, please go to the hospitals and jails. Make statements and deliver objective information to your countries media and officials! By your international mandate - protect protesters from human rights violations. As we know how people dissapear from hospitals, are beaten and jailed.
2. The Europe must react now by personal financial sanctions to stop the violence in Ukraine.
3. Start the URGENT international investigation of the unprecident human rights violations going on now in Ukraine.
4. URGENTLY delegate your human rights monitoring missions to Ukraine.

Aaaaarrrrrrgggghhhh! Both the BBC & CNN continue beating the old "East v. West" horse. This is NOT a battle between eastern & western ukrainians! Nor is it a battle between "closeness" to the EU v. Russia.

It is COMPLETELY about the corrupt, kleptocratic, unaccounrable government that considers all citizens, east & west, Ukrainian- and Russian-speaking, to be simple vassals to be (ab)used in his insatiable lust for money & power! Yanukovych's "crime" is NOT being pro- Russian. It is being "Victor Yanukovych", trampling the constitution, living above the law, while having all citizenry gain no protection by his fully compromised & corrupted legal system, and like the rabid dog that he is, he must be put down!

|My heart is sore over the situation in the Ukraine. A genuine people led protest for Democraticy and social justice is facing an uphill struggle. On the one hand they are taking on the puppet government of Russias Vladimir Putin who want the Ukraine to become a part of the Russian federation. Against this the protest movement is being exploited by the right wingers who want to become Russian again and the anarchists and criminal organisation who have seized the opportunity to exploit the situation for their own ends an d the protest movement cannot control them

What an awful mess, the ordinary people suffer daily as usual and we can only look on appalled bdec ause we cannot intervene directly except to pray for them and hope for the best,
