Description: Ukraine's interim authorities have accused the country's ousted president of ordering snipers to open fire on protesters and getting help from Russian security agents to battle his own people — but their report yesterday provided no evidence directly linking him to the bloodbath in Kiev. Also yesterday, Ukraine sent 16 senior officers to Bulgaria to join a NATO military exercise in a very public demonstration of cooperation between the alliance and the crisis-torn former Soviet republic. The computer-simulation drills involved over 700 troops from 13 NATO members and partner nations and were being held just a few hundred miles away from Crimea. We talk to American-born Ukrainian Catholic priest Fr. Andriy Chirovsky.
