Let's hope so. Perhaps those peacefully protesting orthodox priests made an impact.

Looks like the Opposition aren't happy with a token role for a PM. They want full-scale change. A Revolution is brewing! Very scary.

I can't speak to authenticity of claims here, but there have been dozens of videos on this over the weeks.

The claim that opposition leaders actually got to speak to Merkel changes the paradigm if true.

Interestingly, some vids show statues of Mary prominently displayed.

Looks like the Ukrainian President did quite well at enriching himself at the expense and blood of the Ukrainian people.

Check out these photos of his get-away mansion.

What's that one song by Creedance Clearwater Revival, Fortunate Son, go,

"Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Boy, don't they help themselves.
But when the taxman comes to the door
Boy, don't it look like a rummage sale!"

Things are not looking good today. We need to keep all of the people of the Ukraine in our fervent prayers.

After centuries of war and ethnic cleansing (enforced up to the breakup of the U.S.S.R.), the Crimea is now essentially a Russian province (58% ethnic Russian vs. 24% native Ukrainian), given to the Ukraine in the 50s by Khrushchev (supposedly as a sign of solidarity, but possibly as a way to get rid of a troublesome province). At this point, the Ukraine should probably be split in two.

And Russia will be loathe to lose the strategic southeastern part of Ukraine. They may even invade. Certainly they are flexing their muscles. But if they don't invade, look for the southeastern regions to split off from Ukraine proper.
