While working with our railroad passenger traffic's tool, Mykhaylo Stronsky, a reader of TEXTY, noted irregular traffic at Kyiv-Dniprovsky, a station in the capital city, which usually does not accept passenger trains.

The dates of arrival of trains to minor, mainly passenger-free stations (i.e. other than Kyiv Central Station and Darnytsya) turned out to match the dates of mass Anti-Maidan rallies and provocations of the "titushky" (militants of the Party of Regions) in January and February 2014.

We identified in total 17 pairs (that is, roundtrip — back and forth) of extra trains that arrived to the 4 minor stations within Kyiv's boundaries. The departure stations were: Simferopol, Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, Mariupol, Kharkiv-Central Station. 17,410 "tourists" have been carried by this so-called "Yanukovych Trains"

We do not know whether there were militants among the passengers of those trains. We do admit that they could be employees of public bodies and state-owned companies forced to participate, or "Maidan wetbacks". However, they earned their money by creating an image of popular support of Yanukovych's regime. On this background, real thugs began in turn to maim and kill protesters.
