Ukraine Activists Blast Police with TV News

Ukraine Activists Blast Police with TV News

Protesters in Kiev have come up with a novel way to torment riot police — blasting non-stop news from an opposition television channel projected onto a giant white sheet behind their barricade.

The screen has been set up between two poles on the edge of a giant protest camp in central Kiev — just a few dozen metres (yards) from lines of riot police defending government buildings.

The police are not taking the affront lying down and are striking back with a mix of World War II tunes and golden oldies by Soviet crooners.

The militant, who was reluctant to identify himself for fear of prosecution, said the idea was that seeing the opposition’s view of the situation might change police mentalities.

But he said he did not hold out much hope.

Every now and then a shout goes up from the protesters for police officers to lay down their riot shields and come and join the opposition side — so far there has been no response.
