 Subject:  Maidan massacre: new revelations
 Answer in writing 

On 18-20 February 2014, in connection with the Ukrainian conflict, at least 100 people were killed in Maidan Square, Kiev.

Contrary to the version immediately provided by the international media, some wiretap recordings have come to light, revealing that the massacre was apparently carried out by snipers at the orders of the new pro-western coalition. More specifically: three years after the events, an exclusive report by war correspondent Gian Micalessin in his investigation ‘Ukraine, the hidden truths’, has brought to light the confessions of some of the Maidan snipers, who admitted that it was not the men of pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich behind the massacre, but rather the heads of the opposition, supported by the European Union.

In relation to this evidence:
Will the Commission clarify its own position, in the light of the revelations which have emerged?
Does it not consider it appropriate to open an investigation?
Should it not reconsider the balances of power in the area, the recognition of areas of competence and the unconditional support currently being offered to the government in Kiev?
