How many Ukraine government ministers come from these fascist elements? Four?

Bravo, no one has never been to Ukraine or even no one so-called journalist has ever visited the place of the combats. Listen to waht OSCE is saying, they are the only presented at the border. All others are zombingly repeating to what obama says.

That’s why the entire Ukraine is fighting for its freedom against Putin’s dictatorship now.

Just one of the many reasons our nation has lost its moral legitimacy to hold any other nation accountable.

“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” —Jesus Christ

The only worthwhile debate is that which explores the quality of the journey.

No one in Russia needs expansionism.

Is he or she crazy or just ignorant? Further, Vladimir Putin defends the vital interests of Russia and the suppressed Russian population of Eastern Ukraine. His actions are absolutely legitimate, and I wish him every success. On the other hand, the so-called current leaders of Ukraine are genuine thugs and plain criminals.

Where were the liberal ideas of the west at that time. Yanukovych was elected in a legitimate democratic elections and the demands of the (then) protesters should have been put to test in a democratic election. This was, by the way ,the compromise reached one night before the rebels took over , in negotiations held between the 2 sides ( then government and protesters) with the mediation of the EU. The current policy of the West towards Ukraine smells of hypocrisy and is not legitimate.
