It was YOUR decision to die . So you people occupied gov't buildings. What did it get you? Bullets, tanks brought death and injuries to you, and STILL you don't seem to understand how illogical your actions are.
The interim gov't has no agenda to kill people. But you made it impossible for Kiev to do anything except take back what belongs to Ukraine.

  

You know, Yanukovitch could have done the dsame thing to the Maidan protesters and he would have kept his Presidency. why didn't he?......Humanity, something the current admin does not possess.

Vl ad (not your name but I'll go along with your gay fantasy), an alien has landed in my front yard. It said it fixed the last US election by mind control and people thought they were ordering jerk chicken. Trolls posting to RT are apparently part of the subterfuge. We will know them by their use of the terms 'Kremlin -backed' , 'pro-Russian separatist' , 'peaceful Maidan protester', 'elected Ukrainian PM', 'restoration of law and and order (particularly in East UA)'

Warnin g: Russophobic posters who use RU names.

If so, then you are all lunatics. You are much too emotional and would be a liability even for Vladimir Putin to place under his protection. He should wash his hands over you and the shame you have brought to him.

  


It's called standing up for their freedom against corruption and your scu m Government, You should try it instead of staying asleep while your gov do things like 9/11 then use terrorism as an excuse to bring marshal law and take your rights away. Good luck being able to protest by time you realise. You people have brought shame to the world.

Obviously because you are brainwashed going by your take on this.

It was YOUR decision to die rather than use common sense and logic. So you people occupied gov't buildings. What did it get you? Bullets, tanks brought death and injuries to you, and STILL you don't seem to understand how illogical your actions are.
The interim gov't has no agenda to kill people. But you made it impossible for Kiev to do anything except take back what belongs to Ukraine.

  

Who are you to comment on what they should do? You people are asleep doing nothing while your Gov. destroy the world.

In the hearts of all mankind, they have the instinctive and inherent urge inside to root for those whoare right to win irregardless of their own selfish agenda. Unless, you are totally sold out to the devil

In 1776, the rebels in the 13 English colonies in America declared their independence from an oppressive England under the insane King. That was ok by American .
Donetsk and Lugansk vote in a peaceful referendum to be independent from an illegal and oppressive neo-Nazi coup-govt in Kiev. not ok acording to American standard. What a double standards.

"The Us and EU have denounced the referendum and said they would not recognize the result of the vote on self-rule held by rebels. "

Get lost. Who cares?

  


You know that there is this thing called UN now a days...

What strikes me time and again is that both in the Crimea and Eastern Ukraine you see large masses of jubilant flag waving people in support of Russia or self rule. Tell me Where are the people supporting the fascist Kiev regime. They appear conspicuous in their absence.

  

Maybe most dosnt support either one. No more Kiev facists than pro Russian terrorist groups. You must be aware that kievs regime is temporary, as it has been from beginning.
