The preliminary check showed that the film broadcasted at the Italian 5 TV channel under the name ‘Ukraine – hidden truths’ is a fake. Sergy Horbatyuk, the Head of the Department on Special Investigations claimed this at the briefing broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
According to him, the journalists did not appeal to the Investigations Department or Prosecutor General’s Office despite the standards of the journalists’ ethics and important of the check of the information. It raises the first doubt.
‘Three Georgians that claim that they shot in Maidan are shown in the film. They came to Ukraine in January and were in ‘Ukraine’ hotel. The check showed that they were not in this hotel and generally they did not enter the territory of Ukraine’, he noted.
Moreover, Horbatyuk claimed that the pieces of evidence of the Georgians on the shooting from both sides do not correspond with the expert testimony and investigative experiments.
‘There is no correspondence with the reality at many moments that they are talking about’, he noted.
‘The preliminary check showed that the authors of the film did not attempt to determine the truth’, Horbatyuk is sure.
As we reported the Italian internet-portal Gli Occhi Della Guerra published a film-investigation where a few people call themselves Georgians and confirm to be snipers who shot the protesters and the law enforcers in February 2014 during the Euromaidan.
The journalists in the video interview three people who present themselves as Koba Nergadze, Kvarateskeliya Zalogi and Aleksandr Revasishvili.
People who called themselves Georgians confirmed that they were members of a few detachments armed with the firearms situated at the ‘Ukraine’ hotel and at the Conservatory during the escalation in Maidan. Also, there were the citizens of other countries, including the Lithuanians.
Revasishvili claimed he was ordered to shoot at everyone, including the officers of ‘Berkut’ and protesters during the escalation in Maidan.
