No, that is not Russia. That is the point of it. Ukraine is, and should remain a free and independent nation.
What do you suppose would have happened here if the Occupy protester had gotten violent? Probably much worse than what has happened in the Ukraine.
I remember when we invaded Alaska. The blood shed and gore still haunts my dreams. Moose guts mixed in with the killed children. It still makes me sick to think about.
Hmm, they stood their ground, and ended up as if living in Florida with vigilante justice.
Hopefully they really have reached an agreement to end the violence in Ukraine. We should do the same. It’s time to stop invading other nations, or fretting over their politics, and focus on home.
If you mean Kiev it’s been a few places. It first entered history as the capital of the Khazars who picked the Jewish faith as the best of the three alternatives presented.Barabarian invasions reduced it to a backwater town on the Steppe. In the Middle Ages it was part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commowealth. In the 1600s it fell under the sway of the tsar and it was held until the end of WW1 when it briefly became independent, only to fall to the Bolsheviks. No wonder there are stresses there, with a history like that.
