Then why are they way above eye level?

Lamest headline I've seen in a while. Oh yes, it "got real". As if it wasn't a serious issue already.

MBooda: Not a repeat from 1510?

Looks more like a repeat of 1941 and the destruction of the Kiev Army Group.

So I did a little google searching before I decided to ask, but I'm assuming that is the ruling party's headquarters on fire...so who is that surrounding it? The protestors?  And who the hell is the guy talking?

Just in time... a buddy of mine was at the Olympics and flew out of Kiev yesterday.

Unfortunately, this video is not available in Germany because it may contain music for which GEMA has not granted the respective music rights.

Ain't no censorship like corporate censorship.

m1ke: Isn't it "The" Ukraine?


No, hasn't been since the breakup of the Soviet Union. "The Ukraine" was a subject region. "Ukraine" is an independent nation. I didn't know this until I visited the place, so don't feel dumb.

Probably to mess with the Berkut (riot police) and/or police and military helecopters.

No it's a country called Ukraine.  It used to be the Ukrainian Socialist Repulbic, and the Ukraine is also a region, but the country is Ukraine.

To maximize the number of people in the world who could understand the words.  English is becoming the de facto international language.  More people speak a dialect of Chinese as a first language, but there is no more popular second language in the world.

Didn't know this either until corrected by a Ukrainian, she was pretty adamant about us Americans dropping the "The".  I explained it to here it just kind of rolls off the tongue in English to add "the" kind of like The United States...or something.

It's not that unusual to see, especially if the goal is to get international coverage.
Femen has been known to pay prostitutes and others to "protest" though, so they might not even understand English.

God I loved the tshirts in China.  It was all the rage to have English writing on your shirt.  Coca-cola, Nike, whatever.  However, the cheaper ones didn't have rights and didn't really care.  So they'd put Cow and Grocery Store on the shirts and sell it to the hip kids.

Yes, that was one of my delights while living in China.  Kids wold wear the goofiest shirts, someone of them really vulgar and offensive, if they had English on them.  This even happened in HK where English is an official language.

Does anyone know what happened with the Russian Orthodox priests who were standing in the middle of the battle zones?  I thought they were (mostly) keeping things from erupting to this.
