 Yanukovych initially planned to use the army to suppress peaceful protests – Butusov

A number of army units were ordered to move to Kyiv in February, 2014, during the mass protests on Maidan square.

Censor.NET Chief Editor Yurii Butusov wrote on Facebook.

"I learned some information from the military which would be a sensation in December, 2013. On December 2, 2013, immediately after the demonstration and events on Bankova street, the Chief of Staff Zamana and the Minister of Defense Lebedev (Russian agent and a traitor - Butusov) initiated adoption of the Temporary Doctrine of the Armed Forces Use, which permitted the use of the army to fight terrorism and conduct special operations on Ukrainian territory in peacetime. The doctrine confirms the version that Yanukovych initially prepared a scenario for the use of the army to suppress peaceful protests," Butusov stressed.

He noted that the temporary Doctrine still applies today.

According to him, on the basis of this doctrine a number of army units were ordered to move to Kyiv in February, 2014, which, however, was successfully sabotaged by the majority of the military personnel.

The Doctrine still allows the General Staff and the Ministry of Defense to use the army on the territory of Ukraine in the conditions of the 'hybrid war' and a real threat of terrorism.

So Butusov wonders if the Administration of the President and the Verkhovna Rada know about the document.
