How did Vitali Klitschko get so much power in the opposition movement? and what is his brother doing other than planning a wedding to her?

if this was in canada or the states the police would have killed a few of the protesters / used some serious anti-riot weapons by now instead of just standing there and taking it (im approving of them not killing ppl btw)

seems like they probably weren't police or any actual authority figure the way they acted

at least fire some tear gas or rubber bullets when it gets to that point

How is the opposition/protesters getting all these weapons and firearms? Who is funding them? That's what I want to know.

Supporters of the opposition this week overran an Interior Ministry garrison near Lviv, in western Ukraine, and captured its armory. It was unclear whether any of the commandeered weapons were being used Thursday in the fighting in the capital.

its not just the olympics. It has been going on since november, and at the escalated state, since the beginning of january, and mainstream media has completely ignored / chose not to mention it until now. the only reason they are even talking about it is because a larger number of people have died so now it is news worthy.

All these former soviet leaders are mobsters, Putin the biggest one of them all. The people are tired of getting fucked, and want to cut ties from Russia as much as they can. This guy's house is a perfect example of why. A leader of a country shouldn't be living like that, even in the richest nations in the world let alone the poorest.

What a piece of sh|t the president is.

The main reason the media is covering it now is because the politicians including the US government are now showing interest. It's the whole Putin vs west thing.

The Putin vs The World thing is going to get bigger and bigger going forward. It will be 1st world and 2nd world countries against each other all over again. Only this time instead of NATO vs Commies, it'll be NATO vs gangsters and commies
