Anyone Following The Protests In The Ukraine?

I've been seeing some impressive pics of protests in Kiev.


Protests against new anti-democratic laws in Ukraine are increasing in intensity, with four citizens reported dead. As you can see in these extraordinary images by Ilya Varlamov, the demonstrators are using rockets made with fireworks. They look like scenes from some science-fiction movie about urban warfare.

The latest reports talk about at least four people killed and hundreds injured by the police. After the massive protests against the government's rejection against the European Union in favor of an alliance with the former Russian oppressors, Kiev officials announced new repressive laws limiting the people's right to protest. These urban battles are the people's reaction to those laws.

Ukraine was a former Soviet Republic, created after a civil war between pro-communist and the Ukrainian People's Republic armies at the beginning of the 20th century, right after the fall of the Russian Empire. The communists won, and the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was established. In theory, it was an independent state, but in fact—like all republics in the USSR and satellite countries—it was under a tight control by the Kremlin.

Americans aren't motivated enough to do this. If there's not at least a pot-luck dinner involved, we're not getting off the couch...

Kudos to these folks for not being couch potatoes and fighting for whatever they think they're fighting for.

No to disagree but a good country potluck at Church is amazing.

Setup some tables in front of the white house and capitol hill, put some stuff in a crock pot, and you might see some change.

What age group/gender brings what food/drink? It's a revolution in the making...

Take off your USA! USA! USA! colored glasses. And quit slurping up the news you're being fed by our biased media. The protestors are simply pissed off they lost the election in 2010 and with that, the right to control policy.


I can assure you if tens of thousans of Tea Party protestors stormed Washington Mall after the 2012 re-election of Obama and started tearing down the entire city, they'd be met with armed resistance too. In America, we don't behave that way when our side loses elections.

I don't know that much about it but weren't they initially angry because they wanted Ukraine to move closer to the EU instead of Russia? From what I read the population is pretty split on that. I think the Ukranian government was probably heavy handed but there's also been shots of the protestors launching fire bombs. Just because a few thousand people organize in a square and chant slogans it doesn't mean the government is at fault, or that the protestors should be rewarded with a power change.

Bro, the guy stole billions (that's with a "b") from the country. The fact that he was about to single-handedly revert the country 30 years back was just the final straw that broke the back of the Ukrainians. I am proud of them for working as hard as they have been in order to keep the crowds from falling for the agent provocateur tactics.

PB, just trust... you have no idea what you're talking about.

I'm making no defense of the current leadership nor do I know the truth of his possible abuses. I will stipulate everything you say is true, if you stipulate the term "dictator" doesn't remotely apply to someone democratically elected.

They aren't mutually-exclusive at all.

I can't stipulate that because in many cases that's exactly how dictators come to power.

However, I can agree that calling Yanukovych a dictator is a hyperbole. If he was a dictator, he would not be on the run right now. Thankfully, he and his party care more about the money they stole than keeping power in Ukraine.

His life was never in danger. His freedom might have been, though.

Do you have any friends or relatives caught up in this, Pants? If so, I hope they are safe and well.
