    No, he called BS the news that Russia is already giving out passports to Crimea inhabitants. Mironov is suggesting to pass the law about citizenship.

    Well, is it part of a Russian build-up to put themselves in the necessary frame of mind to go to war?

    No one, no where, but in Russia, are people currently as shrilly aggressive about the Ukranian Maidan-phenomenon. It's not even a contest. If it's about sheer aggressive posturing about how horrible these people are, then Russia stands out like a sore thumb. I'm not sure Russians are even noticing how proncounced it is though?

    Done with the second one.

    The first one is just a poster cheering for an independant (or a subject within the possible Ukraininan federation) Novorossiya.

    He is also a Chechen extrimist, what a coincidence...

    Ha-ha! Fool Maidanists and offstage instigators got their European democracy: Zapaden-Cossack democracy :). It seems, there will be no Neo-Nazi regime afterall or any real change of the system: these people with arms are tooo unsophisticated :lol:

    Some development. Russian military sighted in Sevastopol.

    They do have a military base, but reports says Russian military is driving out of it into the city.

    I thought that bears were raised from young to serve as steeds, not hunted.
    When did I say that 'Russia was lynching negroes'?
    Link needed, Comrade 36.

    "Anonymous Ukraine" hacked Klitschko's email:

    This is not the first time he's been hacked. In autumn, they got his emailing with girlfriends revealing he abandoned a woman who has his child (http://blog.polemika.com.ua/blog/_1649.html).

    We in America, give a damn. Our government, on the other hand, cares only about its own interests.

    Since the south and east are girding up, and they have all the industry and access to the sea with two major ports -- and the regional authorities are taking over (and half of parliament had already gone home for recess, what is this "government" in Kyiv actually in charge of?

    Central and western regions.

    In the reality, people complain there is no police on streets. In Kiev and other cities, even in Lvov.

    ***

    In Lvov, kids from Pravy Sektor attacked a musical band which was against this organization.


    Link to video.

    ***

    17 January in Lvov. Pravy Sektor. These units call themselves "self-desense of Maidan". Notice the "White Pride" flag. Their main slogan is "Heil Ukraine! Heil heroes!" (heroes are, above all, Bandera, Ukrainian Insurgent Army of WWII). The rest of Maidanists adopted the slogan from them.

    "And you are lynching negroes" is a canonical example of an ad-hominem fallacy.
    When I said about Russians being discriminated, instead of addressing my point, you replied with something about minorities discriminated in Russia in the past centuries. It didn't have any relevance to my point, and sounded like an attempt to excuse the cases of mistreatment of Russian speakers.

    You may consider it as a victimization, it's no surprise, knowing the way how information about our region is presented to the Westerners. We here have a bit more first hand information.

    ^Takhi is not in the West. He is in Revolutionary América del Sur. :)

    And even closer to the short story el Sur.

    Ukrainian "Social-Nationalist Assembly" with "WotanJugend" from Russian Federation after the occupation of the International Convention Center ICC Kiev. Both are Neo-Nazi organizations.

    Among many other things he says "liberals" (pro-European Maidanists and ex-opposition) are temporary allies.
