A shadowy group has been acting like a “Murder Incorporated” in Kiev and Odessa, Ukraine. We do not yet know exactly who these assassins are. For the moment we can call them “Luca Brasi”, after Don Corleone’s favorite killer. (Background: Luca Brasi Called In, Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of May 15, 2014.)
It was Lyndon Johnson who famously said shortly after he took office in 1963, “We had been operating a damned Murder Incorporated in the Caribbean.” There had been a long history of Luca Brasi-type operations:
- A CIA Killer’s Training Manual from 1953 suggested simple “accidents”, “a fall of 75 feet or more onto a hard surface. Elevator shafts, stair wells, unscreened windows and bridges will serve…” 
- In 1954, CIA blew up Chou En-lai’s plane, but the first Premier of the People’s Republic of China had switched flights. 
- Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, the CIA’s in-house killer chemist, was sent to kill the Congo’s Patrice Lumumba, with a hypodermic loaded with poison. 
- The US was implicated in the murder of the Diem brothers in Vietnam as well as many well-attested efforts by the CIA to assassinate Fidel Castro.  For the attempts on Castro’s life, the CIA sought help from an outside agency considered experts in murder: La Cosa Nostra, whose expertise is depicted in the Godfather movies (including the little noticed Godfather III).
The help from an outside agency (this time not La Cosa Nostra) may have been again inaugurated in New Orleans, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Navy SEAL snipers were allegedly deployed and “racked up over thirty kills between them near and around the Super Dome.” Many of these New Orleans snipers “took leave to work for the controversial PMC (Private Military Company), Blackwater.” Allegedly, a US private security service formerly known as Blackwater was operating in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk circa March 2014. Russian state TV “reported that the tough guys are employees of Greystone Limited, a subsidiary of Vehicle Services Company LLC belonging to Blackwater/XE/Academi.” 
Who were the snipers in Kiev on February 20, 2014? These unknown snipers were shooting at both sides, both the police and the protesters! How do you understand the contradictory shooting at both sides by the same unknown snipers? It may be the overall goal was destabilization. An alleged US Army Field Manual 30-31B lends possible credibility to accusations the CIA has tried to destabilize democratic nations to foster the U.S.’ interests. The United States maintains that such a manual is a forgery and has found soviet defectors willing to testify that it was put together by the KGB. However Licio Gelli, grand master of the P2 masonic lodge involved in all of the murkiest and bloodiest episodes of the “strategy of tension” repeated openly and bluntly that he had received his copy of US Army Field Manual 30-31B directly from the hands of CIA men. 
The new “interim” government in Kiev investigated the sniper shootings of February 20th and arrested “12 members of the now dissolved special Berkut unit and presented them as the main suspects in the shootings.”  But now, the head of Kiev’s parliamentary commission investigating the shootings, Gennady Moskal, has stepped forward and said there is no forensic evidence linking Berkut, special police of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, to the shootings. “This will be yet another case, like the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, which is still being investigated today,” stated Moskal. 
What’s next? Will some “Leon Oswaldavitch” be blamed? Then will Leon Oswaldavitch say, “No, no, I am just the patsy”? And then will a “lone nut” appear and gun down Leon Oswaldavitch on live television?
On May 2, 2014, in Odessa, at least 46 people perished during a fire at the House of Trade Unions building there. There have been conflicting reports about what exactly happened. According to Bloomberg News, the tragedy seems to have begun with an attack on a pro-Russia camp by “assailants” who “set tents on fire and beat everyone who tried to flee.” The “assailants” seem to have been persons “backing Ukrainian unity.” Fleeing the assailants, the pro-Russia people “were chased into a building that went up in flames.” Molotov cocktails allegedly helped cause the fire in the building. 
However new information on the Odessa Massacre leaves “no doubt that the victims were tortured and murdered before being burned.” An anonymous insider in one of Ukraine’s law-enforcement agencies told Voltaire Network that a secret meeting had been held in Kiev to prepare a special operation in Odessa. Football hooligans, known as “ultras,” were to be used. A cash payment of $5,000 for “each pro-Russian separatist” killed was authorized. Neo-Nazis wearing special red armbands were also part of the Odessa operation. These neo-Nazis masqueraded as defenders of the tent city which was attacked and burned. They then lured the tent city occupants to the House of Trade Unions to be slaughtered. Inside the House of Trade Unions, another group of Kiev thugs were readying the main part of the operation, code-named “Ha’ola” – from the phrase “Mizbeach Ha’ola”, which in Hebrew means “the altar of burnt offering”. These Luca Brasi-types slipped into the House of Trade Unions through the back entrance and fortified their positions in the basement and the attic. Those who fled the burning tent city were lured into the House of Trade Unions building. “Some of them went down to the basement from which no one emerged alive – there they were tortured, killed, and butchered with machetes. Others headed upstairs. Gasoline was mixed with napalm to form deadly, acrid carbon monoxide.”
