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.

Like the current EU and some in our own govt. It's just empires clashing against other empires.

From what I read the Southern area is heavily pro-Russia anyway so that's not really a concession Putin got in exchange for lowering gas prices. If they want to go to Crimea and attach it following any breakup, Crimea will easily turn Russian. It should never have been given to Ukraine anyway.


Say whatever you want, but Ukraine won't be any better off pissing on their Russian neighbors. Which is all this coup did. Their only way out is to pray the EU and America make them economic "wards of the state" and lavish them with welfare checks for many decades.


Which after watching what IMF did to Spain, Greece et al with austerity measures, doesn't seem likely!

I don't think that was her point. I'm not even sure that her candidate lost since she doesn't tell us who her candidate was. It's not like the issue that sparked these protests was an issue in the last campaign anyway. The guy who's hiding somewhere in eastern Ukraine didn't run on realigning with Russia.

So? There was another planned election next year when the sad little weepy-eyed protestor chick had her next chance to vote him out. You see Pat, that's how democracies work.


Unfortunately, she was unable to accept the will of voters who thought differently and chose someone she didn't prefer. So she and her ilk did what every democracy must: violently overthrow their government.

I didn't see her do anything violent.

And my point was that she may well have voted for the guy who's hiding in eastern Ukraine, which would make your assumption about her guy losing incorrect.

Are you trying to be absurd or is it coming naturally?

I'm pointing out a huge flaw in your argument style, i.e. the assumption of facts not in evidence.

It looks like Lviv, Ukraine was one of the 5 finalists for the 2022 Winter Olympics. That has to be in serious jeopardy right now, although one could argue that the costs & headaches associated with the Games might not have been worth it in the first place. Krakow, Poland is also a finalist and their city council just voted against moving forward.

What's with all the commies getting the Olympics? Slave labor to build the venues?

at 4am on November 30th, the Berkut (special riot police) attacked just about everybody in Maidan Square, protestors and non-involved citizens alike, with clubs, tear gas and stun grenades.
