Star and Flag for you. I really appreciate your efforts - the western media has been lying about the Ukraine situation simce the start and they will certainly continue the charade. Its awesome that you are working to get info in English to those in the censored west.
Kramatorsk currently has a population of over 173,700 inhabitants (2008) and has a metropolitan area of over 203,100 inhabitants (2004).The Russian language is dominant in Kramatorsk: 63.4% of citizens speak Russian, while 36.0% speak Ukrainian.According to the 2001 population census, the ethnic composition of Kramatorsk is: Ukrainians: 70.2%, Russians: 26.9%, Belarusians: 0.7%, Armenians: 0.6%, Azerbaijanis: 0.2%, Jews: 0.1%
Poroshenko, however, isn't the only Ukrainian politician mentioned. For example, the cables mention the scandal surrounding Oleksandr Turchynov's destruction of SBU documents tying Julia Tymoshenko to organized crime, and note that the accusation that Tymoshenko wanted Turchynov get the Interior Minister position so that she could gather damaging information on her enemies. The cable refers to this accusation as "not farfetched". Turchynov went on to be installed as the acting president of Ukraine in the provisional government.
In order to grasp the extent of the U.S. government's tinkering in Ukraine it is worth reading the documents for yourself.
A sign of where Ukrainian conflict could lead? Victims of mortar attack stand before their flaming home, like a scene from the Eastern Front in the Second World War
But the pictures, which strongly resemble the trail of destruction left by Hitler's forces in the Soviet Union 70 years ago, are also a worrying sign of how the conflict could develop.

How can it be that a military about 15.000 soldiers with heavy artillery, tanks and APCs cannot defeat some russian and chechen terrorists for months now?

And here is a strange law that forced today in the EU. Germany, the 4th raich, will intrude any European country, that wishes to move out or people are rioting into an EU country, without even the permission of the specific country... ! So if a country wish to move out, germany will attack with army that country, or if people riot against their government, germany without permision will attack that people with army and guns.
and here is the law in pdf format.
