this is just east (Russia) against west (NATO), the Ukraine just happens to be caught in the middle of the two ideals.
lets see this seems that there was a "power struggle" between those IN the Ukraine over who to side with. there are those who want to go with the
west, and those that want to go with the east. the president is firmly on the side of the east. so of course those that favor the west hold a
demonstration to show heir support. things of course are tense. shots are fired, both the police and protesters get shot. the protesters of course
think that the police have fired on them (logical thought) and so they go ballistic, and on the offensive. the police thinking that the protesters
shot them also go on the defensive, both for defense, and to do their jobs at protecting the government (again a logical thought).
the opposition of course decide that a revolution is called for, start one, and pretty much take control of the government. yet again this is a
very logical thought
now the president escapes into Russia with the news of this COUP and asks for Russia's AID in quelling the COUP and restoring the rightful
government. Russia agrees and sends in their army. now this is all PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE under international law as i understand it. heads
of nations are allowed to ask allies for help in quelling revolutions or coups.
now this is very important. it would seem that those fired shots that started it were actually snipers. it also seems that these snipers were
working on behalf of the opposition to stir the people up to start a revolution to take over so they can join the "west". which actually puts
the president in the right. which means that the "invading" Russian forces are also in the right. after all they were INVITED by the
legitimate ruler of the country, to help put down the "rebellion".
now the Russians hold Crimea and held a "referendum" of course being mainly "east" supporting people they naturally seem want to go with the east.
seems legitimate. so i would at this point say that area "belongs" to Russia.
as for the rest of the Ukraine what needs to happen at this point, is for the "revolutionary government" to step aside for the legitimate government
and help calm the "western" supporters down. while the president and the "eastern supporters" need to calm their side down. then the "legitimate
leaders", minus of course those involved in the "revolutionary government" (how can any of them be trusted after a coup at least until they can be
ruled out as instigators) need to work at investigating just who the snipers were, who was involved and bring them to justice. the "western NATO"
countries need to stay completely out of it unless the "legitimate government" requests their help in whatever capacity. the same for the "eastern
Russian" side (tho at this point i would take a help request to them as a given). the UN should also be involved as "impartial" people to help
figure it all out, (can we REALLY trust them to be impartial tho?), as that is exactly the type of thing they were set up to do. there should then be
a "referendum" in what is left of the Ukraine to see what the people want to do, tho it could be depending on that, that what is best would be to
split it up so that we end up with a "east Ukraine" and a "west Ukraine" as at this point there is a real possibility that to much damage has been
done to reconcile the country.
