 "Maidan was organized by ''Bloody pastor", Parubii and Pashynskyi", - Kliuiev

Former head of Yanukovych's administration Andrii Kliuiev said that the main organizers of the events on the Maidan in 2014 were the head of the National Security Council Oleksandr Turchynov, the Parliament speaker Andrii Parubii and MP Serhii Pashynskyi.

Kliuiev said it in the Moscow Dorogomilovskiy court which considers the claim of ex-Party of Regions MP Volodymyr Oliinyk on the recognition of the events of 2014 in Ukraine as "coup d'etat," Censor.NET reports citing TASS.

"You know, in Ukraine we have National Security and Defense Council Secretary Turchynov (called "bloody pastor"). 'He is a former secretary of the Komsomol organization of Dnipropetrovsk, then he became an ardent oppositionist and also served as a pastor. He organized all this; he, Pashynskyi and the current Parliament chairman Parubii as the commander of Maidan," Kliuiev said.

"The others were used later - (Arsenii) Yatseniuk (Oleh) Tiahnybok and (Vitalii) Klitschko," Kliuiev said.

Moreover, according to Kliuiev, "they were used blindly, as well as the Right Sector. At first, the Right Sector even apprehended snipers who shot at noncombatants and at police forces," Kliuiev said.

He also claimed that it was Pashynskyi who "brought two groups of snipers - one from Georgia, and another from the Baltic states."

To confirm his words Kliuiev recalled the record of the interrogation of one of the alleged snipers of the "Georgian group", made by the members of the Right Sector which apprehended this sniper.

In addition, he said that the President Yanukovych felt "a lot of pressure from the EU and the U.S."
