    The Russian government did not even say that it recognized the results of the voting, which the authorities in Kiev and their Western supporters all declared illegal from the start. A preliminary count from eastern Ukraine showed 89 percent of voters in the Donetsk region and 97.5 percent in neighboring Luhansk voted for greater autonomy. But the voter rolls were old, and many supporters of remaining in Ukraine said they stayed away.
    .
    Denis Pushilin, leader of the “Donetsk People’s Republic,” said the results showed that the people wanted to be part of Russia.

    In case nobody’s noticed, that applies to presidential elections in the United States also. Aren’t we the ones who started letting dead people vote? Often more than once? If the U.S. elections aren’t rigged, I’m going to need thermal underwear in Hades.

    @old1953 Ukraine did not forbid the speaking of russian, what it did was abolish the law making it a second official language.

    You are 100% correct, old1953. The media whitewash has affected even Mr. Stahler’s view of the recent events in eastern Ukraine.

    Well, a phony “I Voted?” badge on your chest is better that a bullet hole in your forehead! With Vlad Tepes (aka Vlad the Impaler or Vlad Putin) in town that’s the choice Ukrainians have to make nowadays!

    Confusion..the ballot asked voters if they are supporting which: "independence,” “sovereignty” or “self-determination” ?

    What concerns me most when I see cartoons tackling the Ukraine crisis, is their use of the hammer & sickle symbol.
    I worry about the value of the opinion as regards the understanding of the crisis: how well informed are you if that simple matter is wrong?


    Or have I misunderstood Stahler and he is stating that this latest referendum is a throwback to Soviet era days and their voting tactics? But then it wasn’t the Ukrainian government who held a referendum, the breakaway wannabes did. Or, is he saying the current Ukrainian government wasn’t quite ‘voted’ in?


    I dunno. Jeff, want to help out?
