To make sure I understand what I’m reading here, you’re suggesting that the anti-Russian groups caused the violence that they blamed on Russia that led to the coup and the eventual takeover of Crimea?
The thugs hired by this Oligarch are likely responsible for the slaughters in Mariupol and Odessa. A LOT of what has happened in Ukraine can be traced directly, or indirectly, to him, or his money.
He was “appointed” as Governor of Dnepropetrovsk after the coup, and didn’t even have to give up his Israeli passport.
To make things even murkier, he is loosely connected to BOTH the Omidyar Network, and The Open Society Institute.
The Maidan shootings are an entirely different thing. And there are LOTS of questions about who actually did that shooting.
