i can tell i am anti EU too
Ukraine was the 3rd largest exporter of grains, super fertile soil, the largest country completely inside Europe, an army 2nd to Russia... bloody tug-of-war going on with people/EU vs govt/Russia. You just know the EU and US are going to jump in at which point Russia will as well.
Indeed when Ukraine joins the EU all the exports grains, super fertile soil to Russia will, but Russia has the Oil Supply gas. You know what happens then? Ukraine freezes for each winter as an return back.
And the EU offers to Ukraine what? NOTHING. Just ask the Greeks or anyone in the EU.
With Putin hoping that they can just keep it from going full civil war for a few more days, Ukraine continues to slide towards a dismal result. This morning sees the next level of escalation in the break-away Western region:
*UKRAINE'S SECURITY SERVICE SAYS WEAPONS CACHE STOLEN: INTERFAX
*UKRAINE SECURITY SERVICE SAYS PROTESTERS SEIZED 1,500 GUNS
*UKRAINE SERVICE SAYS PROTESTERS SEIZED 100,000 ROUNDS OF AMMO
*UKRAINE SERVICE SAYS PROTESTERS GUILTY OF `TERRORIST ACTS'
And with that, the 'excuse' the military needed to get involved as Interfax reports the Ukraine's SBU starts "Anti-terrorist" operation in the Western region of Ivano-Frankvisk. With 25 dead and 241 injured, according to the AP, we suspect these numbers are sadly just the start.
It reminds me of this thread about the french revolution. This protest is being well funded, they should have broken up weeks ago. How are they getting food, water? Those protesters aren't working.
