Parliament voted to take a break and resume their work at 4 p.m. today -- Katya Gorchinskaya
Dark days for Ukraine has fascism has taken over with the aid of the NGOs and agents in Ukraine.
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Protesters took control of Ukraine's capital on Saturday, seizing the president's office as parliament sought to oust him and form a new government. An aide to President Viktor Yanukovych said he had left Kiev for his support base in the country's Russian-speaking east, but that he has no intention of abandoning power.
Ukraine's opposition on Saturday pushed for Viktor Yanukovych's resignation as protesters seized the presidential residence and offices and the embattled leader appeared to have fled Kiev.
Allies of the jailed former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko were appointed as parliamentary speaker and interim interior minister, as a revolution seemed to be gathering pace following days of bloody clashes. But earlier reports of Ms Tymoshenko's release from jail proved premature as aides said she remained in prison.
Parliament debated an opposition resolution calling for the resignation of Mr Yanukovych, who disappeared from public view on Saturday, abandoning the presidential administration building and his residence just outside Kiev. Meanwhile the country's police announced they stood "with the people" and wanted "rapid changes".
The government, still led by an ally of Mr Yanukovych, said it would ensure a smooth handover of power to a new administration. But the moves incensed authorities in eastern, Russian-speaking regions loyal to the president, which challenged the parliament's legitimacy and said they were taking full control of their territories.
Everyday there's something new. This looks like it really may lead to civil war. East Ukraine vs West.
Here's your beloved leader of the opposition. A "new, truly patriotic structure" that will defend people. Basically means what the Nazis did in Germany before WW2.edit on 22-2-2014 by Agent_USA_Supporter because: (no reason given)
The Ukrainian Genocide Famine (Holodomor)
is one of the least known tragedies of the 20th century...
At the height of the Genocide Ukrainians were dying at a rate of 25,000 per day.
Nearly 1 in 4 rural Ukrainians perished as a direct result.
The Soviet Union dumped 1.7 million tons of grain on Western markets during the Genocide.
Nearly a fifth of a ton of grain was exported for each person who died of starvation.
Over 3,000,000 children born between 1932-1933 died of starvation.
The US Congress 1988 Commission on the Ukraine Famine concluded:
"Joseph Stalin and those around him committed genocide against Ukrainians in 1932-1933".
There were over 10,000,000 victims of the Ukrainian Genocide of 1932-1933
Radislaw Sikorski, the Polish foreign minister, has said there was no coup in Kiev and that the actions of parliament are legal.
He was speaking after his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, had contacted him to express his concern over the events in Kiev.
The opposition not only has failed to fulfil a single one of its obligations but is already presenting new demands all the time, following the lead of armed extremists and pogromists whose actions pose a direct threat to Ukraine’s sovereignty and constitutional order.
It’s time to stop misleading the international public opinion and pretending that the Maidan represents the interests of the Ukrainian nation.”
Maybe he just means Ukraine for Ukrainians instead of Russians???????
Russia has tried to keep Ukraine in it's orbit, against the wishes of many in Ukraine.
