Ukraine: EURO 2012 – The Animal Killings Continue – All In the Name of ‘Football’.

The EU has been ignored.  The EU shows absolutely no interest in the animal abuse of actual EU countries like Greece and Romania, they are only concerned with farm animals and they dont do a very good job of that either.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Sir / Madam,

The requests of the EU to stop stray dog killings has been ignored by the Ukraine authorities, and the slaughtering is still going on at the moment.

I found last week a Russian forum where they are asking for Russians to go into the Ukraine to finish the job off of “cleaning the streets” and being paid. 

This is a new undercover video of the situation

‘The People’ (Uk) newspaper did a follow up on this massacre last month in April:

http://www.people.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/2012/04/29/ukraine-caught-out-again-over-euro-2012-dog-slaughter-102039-23840991/

and also the ‘Sun’ newspaper (Uk) did another report last month (May) :

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4296093/Pamela-Anderson-to-Euro-2012-football-chief-Michel-Platini-stop-the-dogs-slaughter.html

Today I received the following message from a Ukraine animal activist, she has translated it into English after each paragraph as well, and you can see is desperate that nobody is listening:

“Вчера мне позвонила мама и рассказала шокирующую просто новость. Постараюсь не писать эмоционально, факты – вчера у нас в Виннице на Пирогова УБИЛИ 5 собак. 5 сучек, стерилизованных, живущих там уже долго, их все любили, все кормили, жили они на автостоянке, никогда никого не укусили, и вот вчера им дали куриное мясо, после которого все пять собак умерли в страшных мучениях, захлебываясь пеной…….

My mother called me yesterday and told shoсking news. I’ll try to tell you about it without emotions – only facts. Some people killed 5 dogs in Vinnitsa. 5 dogs who were sterile and not aggressive – they lived on a parking and everybody loved them and feeded. So yesterday someone gave them poisoned meat and these five dogs died in terrifying torment.

Я прошу всех, кто прочитает мой пост, скопировать его себе. Комментировать, отправить его куда-то в сообщества по защите животных, так как я В ШОКЕ. Я даже не знаю, что еще писать. Мне страшно, мне мерзко и смешно.. Страшно, потому что теперь и я хожу по городу и боюсь увидеть умирающую в судорогах собаку. Мерзко – потому что я от всей души, как только можно, желаю такой же мучительной смерти тем, кто убил этих собак. А смешно – потому что Украина лезет в Европу. Чистит улицы, убивая собак, сжигая их в передвижных крематориях, травя, а Европа в это же время в ужасе – пишет петиции, собирает подписи против зверств, происходящих на Украине. Наша страна, как всегда, старается угодить всем, кто приедет развлечься на Евро-2012 и уедет, а на собственных граждан, на детей и всех, кто видит эти кошмары, как всегда, плевать. И, если и укусила бы собака какого-то туриста, его-то вылечат – у них медстраховки есть у всех, бесплатно вылечат. А нам что делать? Наблюдая такое в наших городах?

I ask everybody who are reading my post to copy it, comment it, send it to animal protection organizations. I am shocked. I don’t even have an idea what to write, ‘cause I’m scared and… I find it funny. I’m scared because walking in my city I’m afraid of seeing a dog who is dying. I feel myself nastily because I wish people who killed dogs the same painful death. And I find it funny because Ukraine tries to be European country. Our streets are clean, there are now more dogs on the streets, because all of them were poisoned or burnt in mobile crematoriums. At the same time European people write petitions against the atrocities happening in Ukraine. Our authorities, as usual, try to please everybody who came to Euro-2012. But our authorities don’t care about Ukrainian citizens who observe this cruelty.

Я ненавижу этих мразей. У меня нет слов, мне только что, пока писала всё, что выше, сказали, что и две собаки, которых я кормила раньше всегда возле своей работы, тоже исчезли. Я ждала их неделю, а сейчас написал друг и сказал их больше не ждать……

Я ПРОШУ. Всех, кто может как-то помочь, всех, кто может куда-то написать – в газету, в общество, неважно – прошу, помогите остановить это! Я не прошу не отстреливать бешеных собак, как в Киеве, которые бросаются на людей, я прошу, умоляю всех, кто меня слышит – помогите защитить тех, кто ни в чем не виноват, разве что в том, что когда-то его предка какой-то скот, вроде тех, которые умерщвляют здоровых котов только потому, что они им надоели, выбросил на улицу надоевшего питомца. Люди, мы же сами в этом виноваты, так за что вы УБИВАЕТЕ их сейчас?.. Для кого?. Почему не хвастаетесь перед Европой питомниками, а пытаетесь в нее пролезть, тогда как ВЕСЬ МИР  в ужасе от того, что У НАС  происходит?

I hate these cruds. While I was writing all this words above my friend told me that two dogs that I feeded near my office disappeared. I ask everyone who can help to stop it – please, write to a newspaper or animal protect organization. I don’t ask not to shoot aggressive dogs who are dangerous (like in Kiev) – I just want to protect those who are not nasty and guilty. All their problem is that once it’s parent was thrown out of home by a cruel person. We are guilty in it, so why we kill animals now? What for?.. Why don’t we display shelters for European public?

We try to be a part of Europe while all the world is terrified by the facts of cruelty happening in our country.

Мне стыдно, что я украинка, мне стыдно, что я одной национальности с этими извергами, с этими уродами, с этими скотами.. Мои собаки ждали меня каждый день…. и теперь, из-за того, что мы ждем гостей, больше никто не буде встречать меня, лизать руки, прыгать вокруг, тянуть за рукава и ластится…
I am ashamed that I’m Ukrainian. I don’t want to share my nationality with the beasts who kill animals. My dogs were waiting for me every day… and now because of Euro and tourists nobody will meet me, lick my hands, jump around and fawn…

Всем прочитавшим — помогите остановить этот кошмар. Собаки ни в чем не виноваты, их выкинули на улицы люди — те, которые сейчас так возмущаются большим количеством бездомных животных.

The dogs are not guilty.
They were thrown out be people who cut up rough by great amount of homeless animals now.

Помогите нашим мохнатым братьям. Так как сами мы, похоже, не справляемся, как бы не старались..

Help our brothers. Because we, Ukrainians, are not able to do it ourselves, although we try very hard”

I therefore request that you immediately stop the killing of all stray dogs in the Ukraine.

Your racist attitude has not done your nation any good so far; and the killing of stray dogs only deminishes your reputation further.

I am appalled by your approach to animals; you will never be welcome as a modern EU nation.

Name and nationality.

Dear Ms Shalkivska,
 
Thank you for your prompt response to my email.  I apologise for the fact that my email to you was quite  short and not much detail, but then I was not expecting any reply from the Ukraine authorities, so have been concentrating on more detailed information going to the various international media.    I am very sorry to read that you are not aware of what is happening in the Ukraine with regard to the animals.  Evidently there has not been a lot of publicity in the U.S.A. or you are not kept informed of current events in your country. I imagine the main concern has been the documentaries and reports about the racism on-going in the Ukraine and Poland and so the animals, as usual, take a back seat.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01jk4vr/Panorama_Euro_2012_Stadiums_of_Hate/
 
Many reports, videos, photos and petitions have been distributed around the internet now for months ever since the purchase of the  “infamous furnace” to destroy the animals was known and still the Ukraine authorities have ignored all the protests made to them.  I will post just a few of the links below but there are too many to post all of them.
 
There are many organisations who are aware of the massacre of the animals, including PETA and PETA.Deutchland have even produced badges 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zZXN389vFx0
 
Germany, France, Hungary have responded very well with posters and organising protests.  We are all supporting the animal activists in the Ukraine, even the Russians are protesting and have shown news clips on Russia Today TV news.
 
There is no running away from the fact that this is going on so no proof is needed.
 
There was even a Russian forum where they were recently asking for Russians to go into the Ukraine to finish the job off of “cleaning the streets” and being paid.   You need to scroll down under countries, click on UKRAINE, and then the top topic  “Comrades!  Need Help with Euro-2012”  http://vredy.org/

Dear Ms.Cole,

This is Tatiana Shalkivska, Press Officer at the Embassy of Ukraine to the U.S.

Yes, I am proud of my country.
And if something goes wrong in my country I and my compatriots should know
about it so that we could fix it.

In this regard, thank you for your message and the images.

The only thing is in Ukraine we do not use the plates shown on the vehicle in the first image.

My assumption is the picture was not taken in Ukraine.
Ms.Cole, I will appreciate if you could let us know where you got this picture from.
Also, why do you believe the first two pictures were taken in Ukraine? Any proofs?

Best regards,
Tatiana

Subject: Ukraine Animal Massacre

Sirs,
 
I hope you are feeling very proud of your country.  The whole World is watching now and has seen on YouTube and Facebook, the terrible videos of the dogs being thrown into the furnace, being poisoned and clubbed to death.  “Cleaning” the streets of the Ukraine in the name of football!!
 
Now we see the official Government vehicle used in the killing of thousands of dogs in Vinnutsja watched by witnesses!

WARNING Hard Images !!!

It is 3 o’clock in the morning, Andrea comes back from a case where once again a dog has been poisoned. He is very tired because it is getting more and more difficult to find vets who will treat the strays even though they have …no costs. (notice: the dog’s mouth has been tied closed to protect itself not to be cruel because the dog is in agony!!)Part 2: you can hear and see how much this dog is suffering. Andrea reports that the dog has had an infusion and they hope he will survive. He provides the costs of course. Then everything changes, the vet says she cannot keep the dog there because it is a stray and has no papers and therefore has no right to be in a clinic!! At 2 o’clock in the morning. Andrea reports there was an argument between the volunteers and the vet – he is going to officially report the incident!!! Anyway the animal welfarists have to take the poor suffering dog with them. Unfortunately at this hour they can’t find a clinic which will take over this case, so they spend the night with the dog in the car, hoping that the clinic will take over the treatment in the morning and that the dog survives the ordeal. Andrea, who is pretty exhausted, finishes the video and says it would be a terrible blow if strays can no longer be treated because they have no papers and therefore no rights.
Please support WAHRO and the work of volunteers and don´t forget the local animal shelters.
