Ukraine: “I am dying”

A Ukrainian, clearly marked as medical personnel, was shot in the neck by a government sniper, here.  

After Olesya Zhukovska was seated and received first aid she reached for her phone and tweeted “I am dying”.

This and the accompanying picture mark a very powerful series of pictures that work against the government but in favor of the uprising.  The government has been caught flatfooted, relying, instead on press releases.

This is the 21st Century.  The rest of the world is watching, listening and learning.  Since there is going to be a new government in Ukraine, perhaps they’ll learn?
