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.

Lviv man gains fame as EuroMaidan hero with his timely threat to Yanukovych

Many believe that it was a young man from Lviv, Volodymyr Parasiuk, who prompted Viktor Yanukovych to cut and run as Ukraine’s president.

Parasiuk, who participated in the EuroMaidan protests as a commander of one of the people’s self-defense units, ran on to the stage of Kyiv’s Independence Square on Feb. 21. He interrupted speeches of opposition leaders Vitali Klitschko, Oleh Tyahnybok and Arseniy Yatseniuk, who came to the main square to announce that Yanukovych has agreed to early presidential elections – but only in December.

The crowd booed and Parasiuk seized the moment.

“There is no way! No way that Yanukovych will rule Ukraine for the whole year. Tomorrow at 10 a.m. he must go,” Parasiuk said. He threatened that he and his unit would attack with weapons if the opposition leaders did not demand Yanukovych’s resignation as president by 10 a.m. on Feb. 22. Yanukovych might have been watching and listening to the live video stream, because he fled his palatial Mezhyhirya palace late on Feb. 21.

Russian news agencies say that Yanukovych now plans to hold a press conference on Feb. 28 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, where he has evaded an arrest warrant and evidently sought political asylum, while still claiming that he’s Ukraine’s president.

Parasiuk addressed “our politicians that are standing behind my back,” he said. “My brother-in-arms from Yavoriv, Lviv Oblast, were shot dead. His wife and a little child lost a father. And our leaders shake hands with this murderer? What a shame! We all have reached this crucial moment. We have given politicians the chance to become ministers, presidents and they don’t want to fulfill our only demand: Out with the criminal!”

Parasiuk said people are tired of talking and do not want any more negotiations.

“Seventy seven people died and they keep negotiating. I beg you! Support this suggestion. I tell you from my unit, where my father is with me. If by 10 a.m. tomorrow, opposition leaders do not officially demand Yanukovych to resign, we will take weapons and attack! This I swear,” he said and left the stage.

It only took a few hours for Parasiuk to become a celebrity hero of the EuroMaidan revolution that toppled Yanukovych.

Men started coming up to the Music Academy building on Maidan Nezalezhnosti, where his civilian defense unit was located, to shake his hand. Women sought pictures with him and his autograph.

He gave some interviews to journalists before becoming overwhelmed with the attention.

“I couldn’t even imagine that something like this would start, I just did what I felt I should have done,” he told Observer newspaper. “But do not assign any achievements to me. I am not a hero! Heroes are those who died, our heavenly hundred. I am just a tiny grain of sand compared to them.”

Parasiuk is 25, unmarried and works as a cameraman, despite his master’s degree in economics. His whole family is with him in Kyiv. “My mother, my dad, my sister, her husband and their 4-month-old daughter and 5-year-old son. We all live in an apartment of a Kyiv professor in the city center, she just let us in so that kids would be fine,” he said. “I am a simple man, nothing outstanding,” he smiled shyly and looked down, while being interviewed on Hromadske TV.

He refused interviews because they take “too much time,” he told Observer newspaper on Feb. 26. “I understood that half of the time I just talk about ‘how it was,’ while the situation in the country is still very complicated and we have to continue fighting.”

He told journalists, however, that he and the rest of EuroMaidan will hold Ukraine’s new government accountable. He complained on Feb. 26 on Independence Square, for instance, that the new Interior Minister Arsen Avakov “should have been getting criminals in prison from the first day, but hasn’t. My unit and I say: ‘Tomorrow there should be a different interior minister.’”

But this time, Parasiuk’s words had no effect. On Feb. 27, parliament approved Avakov as the nation’s top cop. He posted his reaction on his Facebook page: “If five days is not enough for a minister to arrest criminals that do not even hide, five years would not also be enough for him,” he wrote.

Reminds me a lot of when the Dems blamed everything on George W making Obama's job impossible from the get-go. And short of nuclear holocaust, setting him up to be the saving hero.
Actually... it's a known fact that Yanukovych and his sons have all become billionaires during his presidency.

PB, why do you keep posting stupid things about subjects you know nothing about?

Translation in case anyone is curious:

"Men,

Glory to Ukraine!

I will say this, we came here as a hundred. We don't belong to any organizations, we are just regular people of Ukraine who came to stand up for their rights. We aren't from any sectors, we are just a fighting "one hundred." I want to say that we are just regular people telling our politicians who are standing behind me [he means this literally - the opposition politicians who are standing behind his back on the stage] that we won't accept Yanukovych for a whole another year. Tomorrow, before 10 o'clock, he has to get out.

First demand! First demand: my brother [figurative] from Yavorivshchina... was shot to death! He left a wife and a young child behind and our leaders shake hands with his killer. Shame! [not sure how that was a demand]

Next, my esteemed brothers, countrymen, Ukrainians, I am telling you honestly, I swear, I don't belong to a single [or any] organization, our "one hundred" is standing right there. We were in that building, we all went through the crucial moment together... we gave our politicians a chance to become future ministers and presidents but they don't want to accept one, single condition - that the convict [Yanukovych, who served time in prison a while ago] gets out!

Friends! I won't be verbose. I don't want to wax poetic about these stupid conversations which we were fed for two and half months. I don't believe in these heavy political processes they discuss. 77 people were brought down by headshots and [in the meantime] they're reaching agreements. I ask you to please support this. I am speaking for my "one hundred", which includes my father who made his way here, if tomorrow by 10 o'clock you don't come out with a resolution calling for Yanukovych to immediately resign, we will storm with weapons. This I swear to you."

Same for many of the other former Russian Republics and even in Russia.
Why do our presidents become millionaires post term?

Why aren't you concerned with your own country's problems more?
What about the billionaire criminals connected to govt that were bailed out?
Corruption is what comes with big govt. You support it.

How can people in our government criticize Putin for intervening in another country militarily, after we did the same thing in Iraq and Libya....in fact as still in Afghanistan nation building it.

For Cripes sakes!!!

exactly. The USA materially aided the Egyption military, and was ok when they took over Egypt and overthrew a democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood government.

Russia can easily say that they are "restoring democracy" by by supporting the democratically elected government in Ukraine that was overthrown.

I'm sure they feel they're acting to protect their "interests" too.

Sound familiar?

Wth, interest does the US, or the EU for that matter have there, except for more territorial power for their globalist schemes.

It's Russia's backyard--not ours!

Can lead to an arms race in South east Asia as Japan and others wont believe that the US will live up to their agreements. Can also lead to an arms race in the middle east.

will be good business for the military-industrial complex.
