There you go, I knew you'd slip again.
It was you saying it's a coup, but when I asked you to show me how coup is legal and allowed by Ukrainian constitution, you changed your story.
Thanks for that.
We can move now...
Sorry Zile my dear, but that does not make much sense even if you are arguing semantics.
Xcathdra's point is that the president was removed by a legislative procedure of impeachment as defined by the constitution and therefore could not be considered a 'coup' — i.e. a violent seizure of government.
There simply was no armed insurrection against the executive branch. Yanukovych and his security simply disappeared.
But of course Russia knew nothing of his whereabouts. After all, it is very easy for a head of state to cross your border unnoticed.

Yet I am not the one constantly stating a war is going to occur. I am also not the one constantly stating Russia will nuke the US. I am not the one constantly arguing the US profits from high oil prices.
Its not my fault they don't know the difference between oil and LNG.
I am not a Russia hater by the way so don't put words in my mouth. What I do have an issue with are people who are pro Russian constantly posting BS and when asked to support it, they go off. As for me being consistently wrong, I will tell you the same I tell the others.
Point it out, back it up and we can go from there. IfI am wrong I have no issues admitting it, as I have done in this as well as other threads.
But don't come in, accuse me of something and then not support it. Its is as meaningless as posting comments about Russia's Cosmic weapons as some pro Russians like to do.
And anybody but the United States.
Which, again, undermines the arguments some of the Pro Russians are trying to make.
