Re: Ukraine riots.

Funny you should bring that up Bill - first I was accused of starting protests in Turkey and now this....

KyivPost / Independence. Community. Trust

Strange that the Ukrainians (of the west) want into the EU and the easterners and government want stronger ties with Russia whereas in UK there are protests against EU membership.

As always nothing is as simple as first appears. I can’t yet fathom whether it’s a straightforward EU issue or plain dissatisfaction with the Yanukovych regime that has taken a stand pretty similar to Erdogan.

Until a few days ago the protests were limited to Kiev but yesterday there were thousands of people marching here in Zapororozhzhye with no police intervention that we saw.

In the meantime I shall concern myself with more important issues – like where can I find baked beans in Zap or buy toilet paper without resorting to obscene gestures

Any other Ukraine based TLFers on here I wonder?

Re: Ukraine riots.

Is it not about this time of the year Russia starts threatening to turn gas supplies off?

Usually in January.

When Tymoshenko was in power she acquiesced to the not unreasonable Russian demands that energy bills be paid. But when Yanukovych narrowly won the next election he jailed her for kowtowing.

Interesting situation. If Ukraine should join the EU then Brussels will demand Tymoshenko’s release. And if Yanukovych again receives demands from Russia can he accept without losing face?

All the people I’ve spoken to agree that Ukraine would be less corrupt under Tymoshenko but Yanukovych personally owns the major banks, manufacturing and metallurgical plants.

We live in interesting times.

Re: Ukraine riots.

Biggest protests so far today – even my wife & I joined the marchers!

… Anti government uproar in parliament but no majority unfortunately.

… And what does President Yanukovych have to say? Nothing! He’s just remembered an urgent appointment in China!

Re: Ukraine riots.

Things hotting up here ... any bells ringing?

Let's hope it's not the start of another Orange Revolution.

Re: Ukraine riots.



A Boxing Champ Rises In Ukraine's Bare-Knuckle World Of Politics - Topix

And why not? The US has had it’s actors, the UK has it's wonkers so with any luck we’ll have a boxer.

Seriously though Klitschko would get my vote. Maybe not the brightest but he’s honest and he’d have good advisors - more importantly he’d get rid of the mafia types that run the country at the moment.

Protests are getting bigger every day but now Putin is sending his special riot police in and things could turn nasty.
