These are what the European Union calls "Peaceful demonstrators". It is ridiculous to see what Europe has become, a nest of greedy enterprenurs without any ethics. Shame on the EU "officials" ;.
I really hope Crimea separates from Ukraine and that they receive the full support of Russia.
And please gringos refrain from playing your "World Police" roll.

A break up would lead the four Russian provinces in Eastern Ukr to cede for indepence. Ukr, would lose big in any break up or fight. Furthermore, earth tremors caused by fighting will crack open the chernobyl forcing every to abandon Ukraine and parts of Western Europe.

Ukrainian opposition seems to be very naive if it thinks that "Democracy" ; is that of the kind imposed by those oligarchies that rule western countries, like IMF, WB, Wall Street, just to mention some.

Strategy of Colonization, they are using their usual strategy of colonization as they
have done with many nations in the past.

We Do Not Forget We Do Not Forgive, this time wall in Berlin will not be enough, there has to be walls in London, Paris, Washington...

Bavarian candidate??? NO please! This person could be a great boxer but he has had too many punches to the head! He might be a great man but politics is not for him! The west is just using him as an Ideal & security guard for their spies!

The German Chancellor backed by the US government is making a power grab in Ukraine. In the coming elections in Ukraine the Bavarian candidate is Mr Klitschko the famous Boxing Chump. The outcome of this contest with Russia is already clear signing the EU agreement will rapidly result in the formal partition of Ukraine. The line of partition will be decided in the usual manner by military force of arms.

Looking with google maps it is obvious the E.U attention for the Ukraine. Ones inside, given time, Belarus is next. With the same effective tools, learned in the cold war. Then comes the future. Liberating people East of the E.U border. The dream, a old one, Europe united. From the Atlantic to the Pacific. Then only will we see the face of the real Europe. The Maya, Bible, and Nostradamus where seeing or warning for.

80percent of Ukraine would support going with Russia. these protesters are less than 1percent of the people. they represent the same criminals that broke up Yugoslavia and laced Serbia with depleted uranium. will nato bomb Ukraine now?

Ukranians will get ripped off as we finally gotten ourselves from the EU. It will take several years but it will happen for sure. Best regards from Athens Greece. The protesters are organized by foreign agents or they are foolish really.

If they protested like that in the US, the police would have cleared the place under pretext of fire danger. If they build barricades, the US would have used force to evict them from any public place. Attacking the police with a bulldozer is not a peaceful demonstration.

The EU has nothing to mix itself into this dispute. It is internal to Ukraine. Russia offered the better deal. Ukraine is on the verge of default. The EU would leave Ukraine dependent on IMF loans - that means austerity, privatization of utilities, no more subsidies, about 40% higher heating bills in a country that can't even pay reduced bills.

The western Ukrainians provided military support for the Nazi push into Russia in WW2. In general terms they hated communist Russia for nationalizing their farms. In addition they perceived Jews as being behind Russian communism and so, consequently, they also hated Jews. I've spoken about this with an elderly Ukrainian living here in the UK who was in Ukrainian military support for the Nazis. It seems a large number of these Ukrainian soldiers were transported here to the UK after the war. He said the Ukrainian troops refused to fight against the Allies in the west when the Nazis started pulling back from Russia.

[quote name='Serge Ma' time='10.12.2013 05:42'] By any stretch of an honest imagination, the tragedy still falls short of genocide.
[/quot e]

Genocide ? Perhaps not. But that is a whole lot of suffering that was inflicted on these people.

It makes things even worse that Russia never apologized or acknowledged what they did...which itself implies they felt they were in the right.

if I was Ukrainian, I wouldn't trust a nation who were unapologetic for causing the deaths of millions of my countrymen.

.since Stalin was Georgian not Russian.


Which was part of the Soviet Union. Thats like saying that anything Obama does should not reflect on America, cause hes from Hawaii.

Mor e absurd propaganda from the west Ukr skinhead thugs and nationalistic fascists. Forced collectivisations harmed both Ukrainian and Russians, and were a result of Stalin (a Georgian) and the jew-dominated technocrats.


Stalin pressed out and killed all jews from the governmend, the leadership of Party and NKVD(KGB) in 30's. There was no one powerfull and rich jew.

Th ey were not "murdered" , the famine was the result of idiotic polices set by Stalin.


Ohhhhhh ok. So they weren't murdered, they just lost their lives due to the methodical policies of a person incharge of their fate. So if a civilian gets caught in the crossfire in Iraq, its murder. Depriving millions of food till they die...just an honest mistake. Riiiight.

Wh at I don't understand is how people conveniently forget that the Ukrainian SSR was a founding member of the USSR.


In alot of situation of spousal abuse or homicide, the majority of the time both spouses consented to the marriage, which then broke down into problems.

Same thing here. Russia abused that marriage. Ukraine doesn't want to go back to her sadistic megalomaniac ex husband.

I wonder why the Soviet Union fell after decades of bloodshed from rebellions. OBVIOUSLY the Russians were such good people.

*co ugh* Berlin 1945 *cough*.
