You're entire post was centred around the "large, Russian" support and the opening comment was "90% speak Russian" - the implication you were making in the post was that we're being led down the garden path by pretending there is large Western support when there is in fact large Russian support.
Common sense would say that if 90% speak Russian, Russia has had a major influence on their day to day Life.
I doubt 90% speak English or other minor E.U nation's languages.
I care not for your opinon, nor you mine.
To call me a liar was not cool. Let Time and the Truth settle who is right and wrong and have the last word. I can't be any fairer than that.Can you?
I doubt there will be a split because I think it comes down to who wants it more, Russia or the EU. Unfortunately, I highly doubt the people will end up making the actual decision in the end.
It is a sad day when the fate of all of those people is decided by "who wants it more." It is all a game to some people. Don't worry about what's best for all of those children. Surely, the children are screaming: "Please come to our town with big guns and tanks. You must save us!"

There is far greater support for Russian ties, than we in the West are lead to believe ( 90 % speaking Russian ).We are not being shown this in the media until now, to push an agenda. The small Western funded minority are been pushed on us in a certain portrail, to gather Western support. The true Russian support is only now being shown full scale, thus making them look like trouble makers in a now free liberated and Soveriegn Country.Nothing could be further from the truth.Who would want to join a failing debt ridden E.U. Even the majority of Great Britian's populace want out!Keep it real George Clooney. This is going to end badly for all envolved.There are no Winners in such things.
If Ukraine uses military force to quell demonstrations, then it will give Russia a reason to send tanks to Crimea and East Ukraine.
Now that the 'real border' i.e. that of the former USSR has been penetrated, be prepared for more than silent Russian response. Just like Georgia in 2008, Russia will not keep quiet in Ukraine either.
More realistic scenario is vertical split of Ukraine into West and East. Hopefully that goes peacefully.edit on 25-2-2014 by victor7 because: (no reason given)
However, the younger generations see Russians as our friends. They aren't. Not the Government of the Russian Federation anyway.
