studebaker hoch: In Ukraine, Bloc Party find YOU.
spiderpaz: Harry Freakstorm: What are the chances of Ukraine splitting in to two or three separate entities? The western section is more aligned with Europe and the eastern sides with Russia. That little dangley in the south just needs to avoid Italy's boot.[i.infoplease.com image 505x490]Russia mainly just cares about Sevestapool anyway .. just give it to them, if it get's them out of Ukraine's business a little bit.
RoxtarRyan: Yulia Tymoshenko

Also, she is one of the key concessions in this treaty. She's been (falsely and brutally) imprisoned for two years for made-up charges brought by Yanukovych and his Russophile cronies. Parliament voted to free her immediately after reverting to the 2004 draft of the constitution. Yanukovych saw her (rightfully) as a contender for power and did away with her like any good soviet dictator....err...President would.
Lost Thought 00: Turns out that Eastern Europe's citizens is not terribly fond of Russia rebuilding the USSR. Funny that

Naatje: The Party of Regions is finished. They are losing their backers and their offices have been burned across the country. Here's video form yesterday of a train car full of 'Titushki' who had been fooled about payment. That's Russian being spoken and mostly cursing.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhkrMjprUF4
danzak: shiat, this ain't over by a long shot.From Mychailo Wynnyckyj:Extremely tense and emotional events unfolding on Maidan tonight. According to the announced plan for tonight, a funeral service for the men who lost their lives yesterday in battles against the regime was supposed to be held. The three opposition party leaders (Yatseniuk, Klitschko, Tiahnybok), Poroshenko and other politicians were invited onto the stage together with priests. The crowd (40-50 thousand people) whistled at them, and demanded explanations regarding today's "deal" with Yanukovych. Most people in the crowd are, to put it mildly, not happy that an agreement was signed with the person they see as responsible for 77 dead and several hundred injured civilians. The funeral service was interrupted when one of the coffins was brought directly to the front of the stage during Klitschko's speech, and the crowd began shouting "who will answer for this?!". Then a "Sotnia" (unit) commander who had personally fought with riot police during the past days, forced his way onto the stage. His short emotional speech, during which he stressed that his unit was very well armed, ended with an ultimatum to the opposition leaders: either force the President's resignation by 10 am tomorrow, and renounce your deal with Yanukovych (according to which an election is scheduled for 10 months from now), or this commander's Sotnia will advance ("storm") the government quarter. Dmytro Yarosh from the Right Sector then came onto the stage and proclaimed essentially the same thing. It should be noted that this morning, over 1000 Interior Ministry troops were withdrawn from the government quarter, and this afternoon those troops who were from southern Ukraine were transported home. However, significant numbers of well armed government troops remain inside the Presidential Administration and Cabinet of Ministers buildings. It is now clear that the opposition's "negotiations" are not acceptable to Maidan, and the political ...

SuperNinjaToad: Gunny Highway: SuperNinjaToad: [i.cdn.turner.com image 850x478]If not now it's only a matter of time before Ukraine goes into a full scale civil war.Why is that?Because the differences between the eastern and western part of the country is just too much to bridge. Imagine Republicans living exclusively in one part of the country and Democrats the other. Both groups of folks are in dire financial needs, each group blame the other and they speak different languages.
