I just listened to a live broadcast of the speeches before a large crowd at Independence Square in Kiev. I just made a diary entry here @BooMan - Ukraine: Extremists Reject EU Deal, Demand Violent Overthrow.
A subdued crowd listened to opposition leader and Western favorite son Klitschko who got a luke warm response. The right-wing extremist leader took the stage and in fascist style brought the crowd to an uproar. He set a deadline for president Yanukovich resignation by 10am tomorrow morning or he will move a armed mob to the presidential palace and force his dismissal. Many months ago, the protests turned violent and has all the properties of a revolution: agitators in the crowd and propaganda war with support of Western media. Ukraine's Russian speaking eastern part will be loyal to Russia and listen to Putin's propaganda.
See my earlier diary - Regime Change In Ukraine - Who Bugged Nuland, An Embarrassment plus a desription of some right-wing fascists leaders who entertained John McCain during his visist to Kiev. Just checking whether US Congress' money from the NGO NED and USAID's $1 billion were well spend.
From the photo-op with McCain in Kiev, I now recognise the fascist leader who rejected the EU deal and threatened to march on the presidential palace tomorrow morning: Andriy Tyagnybok from Svoboda party.
Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
