The Ukrainian government may be planning terror attacks on their own country in an effort to stay in power. The attacks would most likely target the
financial infrastructure, and destabilize the relationship with Russia.
Ukraine's embattled government is ready to stage faked terrorist attacks to destabilise the country and discredit the opposition ahead of a rerun of
the presidential vote, a senior government source has told The Independent.
The official, who works for the government of the Moscow-backed candidate and current Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, said: "One of the plans is to
blow up a pipeline and blame it on opposition supporters. Ukraine is the key transit country for Russian gas supplies to the West."
Mr Yanukovych's backers fear the prospect of their candidate losing to Viktor Yushchenko and are ready to plunge the country into economic chaos, the
source revealed. "They are planning to use criminals - plain bandits - that they have a hold over." The source said that a senior member of the
government had been tasked with overseeing terrorist acts.

The Ukrainian election is a very divisive moment in the current history of Europe. If cooler heads don't prevail, we may see a civil war tear the
country apart. Unfortunately if this were to happen may former Soviet states may take differeing sides throwing the whole region into conflict.
Let's hope that the current ruling party in the Ukraine abandons these plans.
