FTA: President Viktor Yanukovych, who went on sick leave last Thursday for "acute respiratory disease,"

He's got acute Getmethefarkouttahereitis. It's a condition that can strike anyone and is not all that rare, hope he recovers.

Russia could put a quick end to these protests, except all its security forces are in Sochi to keep out *teh ghey*

/and people they've ruthlessly crushed before

Sheesh. These people have been at odds with one another for ages. Why does the press still find this newsworthy? Can't they simply be ignored?

It's a near constant feuding between Western and Eastern Ukraine over which way they should lean towards as far as being more with Russia or more with the European Union, and given the US and EU despise Russia and generally want it weaker, they've been big on supporting any anti-Russian parties in any country surrounding Russia. Mix that in with the groups supported by Russia in those countries and you have the makings for some nice collection of news stories about people fighting for the freedom of their country to be with one side or the other depending on which country is doing the reporting.

Vladmir Romanov..er I mean Putin needs to stop meddling in the affairs of another sovereign country. Isn't this how wars begin? At least in Europe?

The Ukraine is broke. Russia offered a way out ($15b in aid to Europe's $0 counter offer). Idiot people who are as bad at math as Americans don't care about such details until their bellies are empty. They want Euro market access because they think Europeans are smart, lol.

Ukraine = Greece w/o Greece's inadequate GDP.

The US state department sees this as a way to taunt Russia for screwing up the US's new war plans that would have gotten us off the hook with Qatar and the Saudis.

Or simply: Ukraine is weak.

Putin wants to bring the Soviet Empire back.

Not under communism, but under simple imperialism.

So? Obama wants to bring Nazi Germany back. We're already following the economic, police state, and global conquest agendas of that regime.

Maybe it will balance out in a big flash. Net-positive for the planet...

He might have opposed the USA's foreign interventions, in which case it's not hypocritical at all.

Things Russia Need Ukraine For:

 - A Black Sea Port

 - A passageway for oil and gas pipelines

 - Food

 - Strategic buffer to Europe and the Middle East

Canadian. And yes, I absolutely supported the Liberal government of Jean Chretien when he kept Canada out of the illegal invasion of Iraq. It was an act of tyranny and should have been treated as such by Canada and the UN.
Vlad's meddling in the affairs of the Ukraine is just an excuse for invasion. He wouldn't dare fart in their direction if they were part of NATO or the EU. Someone needs to put a foot on his face and tell him no more you bullying sh*thead. But they won't. It's another sudetenland again. Everyone's afraid of starting a conflict with that asshat.

FTA:  "We hope the opposition in Ukraine will renounce threats and ultimatums and activate a dialogue with the government to solve the severe crisis," the (Russian Foreign) ministry said.

That actually doesn't sound all that confrontational...CNN going the Daily Mail route here?

No, it's not. "Or else" is about to happen, these people got screwed badly 10yrs ago and revolted. This is partially over the same issues but we're talking about them choosing democracy over what is effctively a dictatorship. This will be the last time, at least for years, to make the break. They ARE their own country, Russia would like to have it be the USSR again without calling it that. These people are out of time and EVERYTHING is riding on breaking free and joining the EU. The EU is not perfect but it's the much better- nay, only -option.
F*ck those in east Ukraine. This revolution cannot be stopped.
As far as the US "taunting" Russia....that doesn't even merit a comment.

We were on a tour of The Winter Palace the day Russian tanks went into Georgia. The old Czarist who was our tour guide could hardly contain herself.

Russians may have hated the Soviet Union but they really liked being a big deal.

A lot of people in the east are joining the protests, it's just not widely reported here.  That's also where the worst of the beatings and random violence is occurring now.  Yanukovich has managed to do what others have failed to do over the last 20 years and is actually uniting the country.

What an 'active dialogue' translates to in Ukrainian.

/they kicked around Princess Leia's evil sister, too
 
2014-02-03 10:59:20 AM
Just a coincidence that the US has shut down almost every base in Europe.

Looks like Russia wants a radioactive moat, with prisoners in the wings ready to transport parts of Chernobyl to build a glowing curtain.

Almost like Cuba seeding its waters with super sharks with friggin' lasers to keep boat people from leaving.

And for those who think the violence is random or in self defense by police:

Opposition activist Bulatov kidnapped and tortured (including crucifixion, which isn't a doddle)

An easy way to tell a Ukrainian from a Russian is by their attitude. If they're rude, they're Russian.

I'm serious, Russians have attitude problems.

Ukraine: What's this? Six of you. Such nice, tidy uniforms. Oh I'm so scared!
[the Russians look at each other]

Ukraine: What, you guys don't have sarcasm anymore?

[Squad Leader talks to his automated assistant]

Russian Squad Leader: Ukraine has responded with a scornful remark.
automated assistant: Approach, and repeat ultimatum in an even firmer tone of voice. Add the words, "or else".

Who wants to be a part of the old Russian drunkard commie chauvinistic racist fascist money-hungry bastards who live and swim in their own Soviet-built shiat and have absolutely no ambition to get out of it, "because it is our former glory!!!".

Let's face it -- Russians were, are and always will be backward square stick-in-the-mud behind the times slaves of their own misguided ambitions. And quite hated for it. (Seriously, does anyone actually ever loved Russian pigs?)

Russia to the Ukraine:  "Join us.  We'll give you money and you can pretend to benefit from our non-existent market.  We'll also fark you in the backside without lube every week."

EU to the Ukraine:  "Join us.  We won't give you any money, but we do have a sort of free market (which we are doing our best to destroy through excessive taxes and regulations) that might benefit you.  We won't fark you in the backside."

So which of these is the better deal?
