Ukraine is in trouble

And it's getting real serious now.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-26249330

Quote:
Police are storming the main protest camp in Ukraine's capital, Kiev, which has been occupied since November.

Explosions are taking place, fireworks are being thrown and large fires have broken out in Independence Square, known locally as the Maidan.

On Tuesday at least 13 people were killed, including seven policemen, in the worst violence seen in weeks.
I never thought it would come to this. The main square in Kiev looks like a war zone, literally.

God knows what happens next.

Re: Ukraine is in trouble

Yanukovych will probably run to Russia be forced to resign, a civil war will start, Russia will back the government (now) and intervene with troops once it gets out of hand which will cause annoyance to EU countries so Germany, Poland and Romania will probably get involved militarily and it will be an all-out war in Ukraine. - Just one possible scenario

Well, here's Russia Today's take on it:

Quote:
At least 18 people have been killed in Kiev as the Ukrainian capital plunges back into chaos. Rioters have attacked police, seized buildings, torched vehicles, and burned tires. Seven policemen are among the dead, all of whom died from gunshot wounds.
http://rt.com/news/kiev-police-rioters-chaos-616/

I'm afraid this really is the point of no return. I just don't see how things can get back to normal after something like this.

I don't think that's possible. The opposition isn't really organized in any way. There are not armed paramilitaries or rebel groups or anything like that.

Have you ever been to Ukraine and seen the city lodgers? They are tougher than Russians during Barbarossa

Re: Ukraine is in trouble

I'm surprised it took over twenty years for this to happen. An independent Ukraine is not viable.
