- Russian "Waco" and
"Tiananmen Square" Massacres Combined
- An Orwellian Plot: "Defending
Democracy" by Killing Pro-Democracy Demonstrators - and with Foreign
- PHOENIX - Remember the bloody images of "Red October II," the
massacre at the Russian White House (parliament) in October 1993, carried
out by the Boris Yeltsin government and recorded on live TV? The New World
Order's Russian quislings killed scores of their own people who wanted
real democracy. Yet they did it in the name of democracy, CNN and others
in the establishment media would have us believe.
- But you'd have to be brain-dead or stone-drunk
to buy that. Just as you'd have to be brain-dead or stone-drunk to think
that the U.S. officials acted properly at Waco or at Ruby Ridge.
- Yet the western leaders, starting with
Bill Clinton, declared their immediate support for this Yeltsin government's
crime against humanity. In doing so, Clinton acted more brazenly than
did George Bush regarding the Tiananmen Square massacre in June 1989.
At least Bush stayed silent for a while before declaring that the U.S.
needs to stay engaged in China. Which only goes to show us how much more
CRIMINAL our government has become in the last decade or so.
- What brought this on? Well, we've recently
received the following excerpts from interviews with the "Red October
II" eyewitnesses and survivors conducted by Natalia Raduga, a correspondent
for the "Russian Cause," a Russian patriots' publication. Her
story was translated by Yuri Kirienko. As you read it, we suggest you keep
thinking, could this happen in America?
- "Our correspondent has accomplished
a big job, the 'Russian Cause'" the editors wrote. "She has gathered
an eyewitness testimony about the horrible events which took place in Moscow
between September 21 and October 4, 1993. Some of her witnesses took an
active part in those events, and fearing prosecution, chose to stay anonymous.
However, that anonymity does not in the least reduce the testimonial value
of what they had said, since their statements were made at a time when
both their fears and the events that caused them were still fresh in their
- And now, here's Ms. Raduga's story, edited
only for English grammar and spelling. But we have to warn you: Some eyewitness
stories are quite gory, as they describe scenes of shocking violence.
Reading them is not recommended for the faint at heart.
- A solemn memorial service was held for
the fallen defenders of the White House 40 days after the tragic events,
according to Russian traditions. That event took place on the November
13, 1993, in an open air ceremony in Drujinnikovskaya Street. That place
is near the Red Presnya stadium, not far from the (Russian) White House
(the parliament). About 50,000 people gathered there to pay their respects
to the murdered compatriots.
- [Where were the CNN, ABC, NBC or CBS
cameras then? TiM Ed.]
- This stadium, near Drujinnikovskaya Street,
was a home to many terrible memories of mass executions of the Russian
patriots in October 1993. Many Cossacks, militiamen, officers of the Army
- all taken prisoner by the Yeltsin government for acting as defenders
of the White House - were lined up and executed in cold blood along the
walls of this stadium. Commemorating this tragic event, thousands of candles
were lighted, and many fires were lit along the wall of these martyrs for
democracy on Nov. 13, 1993.
- The wall of this stadium is a silent
witness to a heroic act of a 75 year-old woman. Defying the bullets whistling
over her head, Varvara Petrovna, saved the lives of eight executed, but
still alive Russian boys. She moved them away from the Presnya Stadium's
wall of death to her apartment. There she bandaged their wounds, treated
them as best as she could, and kept trying to help them find their friends
- Story of Two Young Men
- Other people at the "Stadium of
Death" told me similar stories while warming up their freezing hands
over wood fires on a cold November-night. Two young men approached me.
One was about 20. The other, perhaps 19...
- "We were among those who lived in
the tents near the White House to protest Yeltsin's closing of the Supreme
Soviet. During the night of October 4, we quartered in a nearby sporting
hall. At approximately at 6:30 in the morning, without a warning, snipers
opened fire on the people manning the barricades and the dwellers of our
- The fire came from the roofs of the nearby
(four) buildings. They were the roofs of a residential building No. 11,
along Drujinnikovskaya street, near the hotel Mir. And from the high-rises
in the Barricade Square and of the City Hall buildings, formerly occupied
by SEV, the western-sponsored Council on Economic Cooperation between the
former socialist countries. Gun fire also came from the direction of the
- At 6:45 a.m. (Oct. 3), all defenders
of the White House were alerted, and gathered in the Freedom Square in
front of the building of the Supreme Soviet. At 7:30 a.m. a large caliber
machine gun opened fire from the direction of Kalininskiy Prospect. Everybody
on the perimeter of defense outside the tent city, who was without weapons
and could not escape on time, was placed inside the building. A squall
of sniper fire on the ground level forced further evacuation into the underground
passages. The evacuees were moved to the third floor because all windows
of the White House were raked with bullets from 'Yeltsinoids.' Those who
were armed took up defenses from the sixth floor up."
- At 7:15 a.m. BTRs (armored personnel
carriers) pulled up at the City Hall building and opened fire from a heavy
- At 10:00 a.m., helicopters started firing
at the White House, and at 11:30 a.m. tanks began shelling the building.
Yeltsinoids announced to the world that firing began at the deadline set
in their ultimatum. This is a lie - we were under fire long before that.
At the time when the building was shelled, somewhere around 12 o'clock,
Cossacks caught two spies wearing Spetznaz uniforms (Special Troops). They
coordinated enemy fire by radio and, it must be specifically pointed out,
spoke Yiddish between themselves. Cossacks executed them. Then a word of
warning was passed around on the possibility of saboteurs being inside
- Story of a Belgrade Writer
- Your TiM editor needs to interrupt the
young men's testimony at this point. Notice that the two spies who coordinated
enemy fire by radio spoke YIDDISH to each other? Until now, Americans
had no reason to believe that the "Red October II" massacre was
anything other than one Russian power group (Yeltsin's) battling for against
another faction (the deputies). But the above incident raises a possibility
that FOREIGN elements were also involved in the White House battle, evidently
on Yeltsin's side.
- This writer first became aware of such
allegations in February 1997, during the pro-democracy protests in Belgrade,
Serbia. Dragos Kalajic, an accomplished writer and editor of the DUGA
magazine, gave a speech at the Writers' Club in Belgrade in which he explained
why he chose not to join the demonstrators in the Belgrade streets. Here
is an excerpt from his talk, which was also published in the DUGA magazine:
- "One of the important ethical reasons
for not participating in the (Belgrade) protests is a sense of duty I feel
toward my friends. During the night between October 3 and 4, 1993, the
pro-American and Russophobic Kremlin government... used military force
against democracy; against the representatives of the political will of
the Russian people in the Russian parliament.
- The West, of course, had shown then how
much its leaders and media care about 'democracy,' as they applauded this
crime and atrocity. A legion of foreign mercenaries, led by the CIA colonels,
and with the help of the snipers from the Israeli division, 'Uerihon,'
killed at least 1,500 Russian defenders of freedom and state. Among the
killed were some of my friends. I do not forget or betray my friends -
not when they are alive, and especially not the dead ones."
- So here we have again a reference from
another source to the role foreign mercenaries played in "Red October
II." Mr. Kalajic even names the Israeli division from which some
of the snipers were deployed. This could help explain why the two spies
who were directing by radio the outside fire at the White House were speaking
- And now, back to the story of the two
young Russians, as retold by Ms. Raduga...
- "One more episode. When the shooting
began, we were still in the sports hall. At approximately 6:45 a.m., a
horrible-looking shell of unknown nature burst into the room. The object
looked like a fiery red ball the size of a kitchen pot. It bounced around
the room noisely, sending sparks in every direction. Then the ball got
into the box stuffed with socks and set them on fire. I do not know what
happened next because we ran out in a hurry."
- Story of a Russian Deputy
- U.A Birukov, 62 years of age, a deputy
from the Tagansk district of the city of Moscow, testified that in early
September 1993, a rumor had spread among the deputies that they would be
- "The rumor had it that the President
(Yeltsin) had already ordered artillery to be deployed in September, and
ground forces in October. We were expecting extraordinary events every
day and they finally came on September 21.
- It was the Presidential Order No. 1400.
Everyone was outraged and surprised by that ease with which the President
reneged on his solemn oath. The oath bound him to abide by the Constitution
he swore to uphold.
- Everyone was also stunned by the ease
with which he violated the mandates of the lawfully elected deputies and
the statutes of the lawmaking body. Functioning of the parliament is outside
of his jurisdiction, and in doing so, the President crossed the boundary
prescribed by law. He broke the law, exceeded his authority, and thus
put himself in the position untenable with his staying in power much longer.
- A session of All Peoples Vetche (the
Russian version of the House of Representatives) was planned for October
3. Notice of this event was dutifully filed a month and a half in advance.
The time and the place of such a session was coordinated with the government
authorities. Nevertheless, this event was banned on October 2.
- On that day, I happened to be among half
a million demonstrators who were moving from Kalujskaya Square toward the
White House. The demonstration was lead by deputy G. Urajtsev. Initially,
we planned to hold a meeting near the Kremlin wall. Yet instead of stopping
the column on the approaches to the Red Square, Urajtsev led it directly
to the Krimskiy bridge.
- OMON (Special Police Detachment) troops,
positioned on the Krimskiy bridge, shot some tear gas into the crowd and
retreated. They yielded to people in order to stir up their passions.
Coordination between OMON and Urajtsev was obvious to an experienced eye.
Demonstrators quietly proceeded to march along Sadovoye Circle, passed
Smolenskaya Square, Arbat, finally reaching Kalininskiy prospect. That's
where they turned toward the White House. It was already nearly 4 p.m..
Looking through the windows of the White House, deputies waved their hands
- When we finally reached the White House,
someone opened fire on the column from the direction of City Hall, killing
two policemen. Such an audacious provocation outraged everyone as it was
clear that the death of the policemen would be attributed to the defenders
of the Supreme Soviet.
- I climbed on the balcony of the White
House where five military men and several deputies had already gathered.
They took turns checking out the City Hall and the hotel Mir through binoculars.
They were looking for the place from which the fire had come. Soon they
located the scum hiding behind a window pane on the upper floor of the
hotel Mir. His machine gun could be seen clearly through binoculars.
- "Weíve got to nail the bastard,"
I told the guys around me. "How? We do not have a single sharp-shooting
rifle," someone replied. All our submachine guns were fitted with
shortened barrels effective only in the shooting range from 20 to 30 meters.
If we had had at least one real Kalashnikov, we could have taken that sleaze
bag out right then and there.
- That day, I returned home after midnight.
A telephone message from my District Council was waiting for me -- a new
session was scheduled for tomorrow at 9 a.m. In the morning on the October
4, however, I discovered that the building of my District Council had been
taken over by OMON. On what legal basis? It turned out that all other
offices of the opposition deputies had been also occupied during the night
on orders from the government. Then I went to the White House to find
out what was going on.
- I arrived on the bridge around 11:00
a.m., and observed a large crowd of peaceful citizens had already gathered
there. A machine gun set on the roof of the building No. 19, along the
New Arbat street, was firing at them. I decided not to risk my life needlessl,y
and turned back to Chaikovskaya street. Around noon,a sniper began shooting
at passersby from the rooftop of the house located across the street from
the American Embassy. Obviously that spot was deliberately chosen to give
the foreign gentlemen a better view of the gory spectacle. It enabled them
to see the bloody face of the opposition close up.
- Policemen swarmed around the building
shooting from their short-barreled machine guns. Yet nobody surrounded
the building, and nobody even tried to capture the sniper. That means that
the whole affair was again nothing but a show played out on the real life
stage of Moscow streets..."
- Olga's Story
- Olga P.: "We spent most of the night
of October 4 sitting around a wood fire. By 6 a.m., only three of us still
remained there: Yuriy, a 15 year-old boy from the Communist Youth League,
and we, two women. The rest of the group melted away. Some had gone inside
the building to warm up; some to have a short nap. In the neighboring tents,
there were several other Communist Youth League girls from Kaluga.
- A sudden pop broke the morning stillness.
(I took it just for a snap as I did not know yet what a sniper shot sounds
like). In front of my eyes, Zinaida, who sat next to me, began disintegrating
into a bloody mess. While my consciousness could not yet fully grasp what
was happening so close to me, the sight of so much blood caused animal
fear in me.
- The boy, Yuriy, jumped to his feet and
ran for cover toward a building. Instinctively, I followed him. The pops
began sounding in rapid succession from all directions. Suddenly, running
ahead of me, Yuriy jerked and fell flat on his face. I ran up to him and
noticed a small bullet hole on the back of his coat. The building was only
30 meters away, and I wanted to lift him up and help him to carry on toward
it. When I turned him around I saw a huge gaping bloody wound in his chest.
To be exact, there was practically no chest left. Indescribable horror
overwhelmed me. I dashed aside, fell, then ran to the White House again.
I do not remember how I reached it. The sniper was shooting from the residential
building No.: 11 on the Drujinnikovskaya street."
- An Old Man's Story
- A 70 year-old witness, who lives close
to the White House, across the street from Krasnaya Presnya stadium, testified
as to the following:
- "The night between October 3 and
4, 1993, we could not even think of sleeping. Both I and my wife were looking
through the window of our second story apartment. We saw a man trying
to run away captured and executed in cold blood inside a personnel carrier.
All night long, troops in uniforms were chasing and shooting the people
who attempted to escape from the White House.
- In the morning of October 4, while walking
out with my dog, I counted eighteen (18) dead bodies in our yard. In the
following 10 days,we observed strange activities taking place inside the
stadium. By the morning of October 4, authorities had closed the entrance
gates to the stadium. On that and all other days, tanks kept driving in
circles, and water tank cars were moving in and out. What that meant I
can only guess. Ask those who live on the upper floors."
- An "Alpha" Soldier's Story
- Suddenly a soldier approached the fire
around which we were sitting, Ms. Raduga, the Russian journalist, said.
He introduced himself as being from the special forces group Alpha. For
a while he stayed silent, but by the morning, he also joined the general
- "I am telling you this because I
am flying out today anyway. There was very extensive destruction within
walls of the White House. The tanks shot fougasse shells, which means
that their detonators were set to go off inside the building. I counted
300 bodies in the parts of the White House that I could see myself.
- I figure that another 500 to 600 people
were executed against the stadium walls. In my position of a rank-and-file
soldier, I estimate that the overall number of people murdered is between
1,500 and 2,000.
- [Interesting, isn't it, how this jives
with the figure which that Belgrade writer used? TiM Ed.]
- The morning of October 4, I saw the deputies
and others captured with them in White House being arrested and crowded
together. It should be noted here, that they (Yeltsin's troops) did not
execute just anyone captured in the White House, but separated them first
into groups. At the stadium wall they executed only the officers of the
Army, the Cossacks, and the officers and rank-and-file policemen who took
the side of the people. The same fate also befell those who took part
in the fighting in Prednestrovye and other hot points.
- In such a tumult, without a master roll
in the executioners' hands, it would not have been possible to separate
those people for immediate execution so fast. That means that the list
with the names of the White House defenders, and generally of everyone
inside the building, had been passed outside long before the storming began.
The White House leadership betrayed the people who trusted them even before
the actual events took place. That treason doomed the best patriots of
Russia to death!
- Also, various military detachments conducted
themselves quite differently. Memorize it and inform whoever you can that
an exceptionally savage behavior was displayed by the OMONs of cities of
Vladimir, Omsk, and Tomsk. With similar savagery also acted Taman division
and some other detachment called PPS No.:2. I do not know how to spell
it out but that unit is quartered close to Lefortovo.
- Sankt Peterburg and Moscow OMONs took
a different stance and refused to take part in the executions. I watched
three members of the Tomsk OMON execute two 17 year old girls on one of
the White House floors. My friend and I finished them off on the spot...
- And in general, there were plenty of
those who enjoyed the savagery. If it were not for our group Alpha, I doubt
that, aside from the deputies, anyone would have been left alive. The bandits
- "I continue to gather evidence,"
is how Ms. Raduga signed off her report. ---------------
- [TiM Ed]: So could something like this
happen in America? You bet.
- Who was the first world leader to give
Yeltsin his full and immediate support for the "Red October II"
massacre? (Answer: Bill Clinton). Didn't the FBI assault at Waco follow
less than six months later? Hasn't our government been trying to disarm
Americans, the Second Amendment notwithstanding? Aren't they now using
the Jonesboro, AK, juvenile killings as another opportunity to put the
guns on trial, rather than our Hollywood-induced violent society?
- Just as importantly - why has no western
media outlet (as far as this writer is aware) ever reported the full story
of Moscow's "Red October II?" Such as the snipers' killing of
two policemen so as to blame the peaceful pro-democracy demonstrators,
and later justify a turkey shoot of civilians and occupants of the Russian
White House? Why didn't they tell us in this land of the constitutionally
guaranteed freedom of the press, about the presence of foreign mercenaries
who took part in the massacre of the Russian people? Or about the summary,
and later, mass executions at the Red Presnya stadium?
- And even if the media were too skittish
or subservient to the NWO elite to tell us the full truth in the pitch
of battle, where were the western correspondents when 50,000 people gathered
at this Moscow stadium 40 days later for an all-night wake on Nov. 13,
1993? Where have the famed western "investigative reporters"
been since that time?
- Did they withhold the full truth about
the "Red October II" from us to keep us, the American lambs,
dumbed-down and ignorant so when our turn for slaughter comes we'd be
just as unprepared as the Russian patriots were? If so, now you know why
we felt it was important for America and the world to know what really
happened in Moscow in October 1993. And to realize that the same people
are still in charge of both the Russian and the American governments.
