The Eastern Ukrainians Are Revolting

Ukraine west v east

This article comes from ZeroHedge.com

It is hardly surprising, given the drastically divided nation, that when Vitali Klitschko’s pro-European political party ventured to Kerch – a city of the eastern edge of Ukraine in the Crimea region – things did not go entirely according to plan… This is the region that Russia has stated it is willing to go to war over and is deep in the pro-Russia territory… headlines galore are coming out of Ukraine but all that matters now is the Russian response

Especially after Tymoshenko’s earlier comments:

  • *TYMOSHENKO URGES PROTESTERS TO STAY IN INDEPENDENCE SQUARE
  • *UKRAINIANS OBLIGED TO BRING YANUKOVYCH BACK TO KIEV: TYMOSHENKO
  • *TYMOSHENKO: UKRAINE MAY BRING CHANGES IN OTHER EX-SOVIET STATES
  • *TYMOSHENKO: UKRAINE WILL HELP OTHER COUNTRIES UNDER `DICTATORS’

A EuroMaidan meeting does not go quite as planned in the east/west of Ukraine…

As Russia warned before…

“If Ukraine breaks apart, it will trigger a war,” the official said. “They will lose Crimea first [because] we will go in and protect [it], just as we did in Georgia.” In August 2008, Russian troops invaded Georgia after the Georgian military launched a surprise attack on the separatist region of South Ossetia in an effort to establish its dominance over the republic.

The brief conflict with Georgia pitted Russia indirectly against the US and Nato, which had earlier tried to put Georgia on a path to Nato membership. The Kremlin regards the Georgian conflict as the biggest stand-off between Russia and the west since the end of the Cold War and it has fed determination in Moscow to push back against what it believes to be western attempts to contain Russia.

The warning of a similar scenario comes because Ukraine’s civil conflict has fanned tension in Crimea. On the peninsula, located on the northern coast of the Black Sea where Russia’s Black Sea Fleet is stationed, ethnic Russians make up almost 60 per cent of the population, with Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars accounting for the rest.

  1. What in the heck are we sticking our nose in the Ukraine
    for.

    One of these days the Russians are going to get tired of
    our meddling and give John McCain, our Vice-President, etc.
    what they keep asking for. But unfortunately the soldiers
    on both sides, and innocent civilians, will be paying the
    bill like they always do.

    –And this is our gratitude for the Russians stopping us
    temporarily(?) from going to war in Syria.

  2. P,S.:

    Does anyone really believe that we care anymore for the
    Ukrainians than we cared about the Iraqis, parts of whose
    country we have put back into the stone age. –The results
    speak for themselves. I personally would not want the U.S.
    to “save” me from some despotism, since the cure would be
    worse than the disease. The puppeteers who rule us have a
    saying(?) for all those whom they sacrifice: “Our agenda,
    your blood.”
