The Ukraine interim government’s inability to hold any serious territory in its easternmost provinces continues to be apparent today, as protesters stormed several buildings in the provincial capital of Luhansk, routing provincial police forces and raising secessionist flags.
Luhansk is Ukraine’s easternmost capital, just 20 miles from the Russian border, and has seen massive protests calling for increased autonomy from the central government, or failing that secession and accession into Russia.
The province’s takeover by protesters has been much less contentious than the similar protest movements in Donetsk and Kharkiv, where Ukrainian military forces have tried to retake cities. Luhansk, being the furthest away, will doubtless be the last to fall.
Interim President Oleksandr Turchinov followed the latest takeovers in Luhansk with a demand for the government to oust the provincial police chiefs of both provinces, accusing them of “criminal treachery” for their inability to violently crush the protests.

Sure, let's have no police chiefs from the South Eastern Ukraine, as they are all "criminally treacherous". Why do not you import police chiefs from among your Galicia catholics. Let's be frank what this is all about. His party boss is on record fantasizing of nuking "Russians" — let's translate for the uninitiated, that is all Christian Orthodox Ukrainians of Russian or Ukrainian origin that do not recognize the primacy of Pope. And the current Pope's early seminary mentor is nobody else but Greek-catholic from Galicia, Czmiel. He has been deeply involved in issues of promoting catholicizm in Ukraine, and has stood by with no complaint as the murderous plans have been put up on internet by the groups he supports. This focus that new Pope brings with him, the focus on Orthodoxy, the hate of Orthodoxy under the guise of "familiarity" is what has brought up from the grave the specter of clero-fascizm in Western Ukraine.
What a can of warms. Hopefully it will end better then what John Paul II promoted on Balkans, and the destruction of Serbs in Croatia. John Paul II has raised the Cardinal Stepinac of WWII fame, collaborating in running Jasenovac concentration camp where upward of 600,000 Serbs, Jews and Romas were killed. And this pope is now planning to promote him to sainthood. Watch and see how this pope promotes Galicia's religious leaders that in WWII collaborated in killing Russians, Jews and Polish resistance. We have allowed this ghost to raise from the dead — due to our foolish, incompetent, ignorant and arrogant leadership.
No wonder they are running like crazy to canonize the polish pope.
Look, the USG and EU governing system, far right including Neo fascism and aristocrats all over the Europe are mobilizing to invade Russia or to the best scenario come closer to Russian border as much as possible for one and only reason, grab much of Eastern Europe as possible by force, where the main idea is to “contain” Russia political and economical influence in Europe and els where in this world. The eastern Ukrainian people know that, they also know that if war with Russia brakes out, they would be the first victims to be bombed by NATO from Germany or even Sweden and Denmark, to save their life, their heritage and their culture they doing exactly as John Kerry have said about NATO going to defend “every inch of NATO territory”. The people of eastern Ukraine are defending every inch of their territory by mobilizing themselves against far right, Neo fascism and European aristocrats.

So, the US now supports Al-Qaeda in Syria, and Nazi-wannabees in Kiev. As well as a military dictatorship killing thousands in Egypt. Well, I guess I know why the American people never get any aid from this government …. we aren't Al-Qaeda, we aren't Nazis, we aren't a military coup slaughtering voters in the streets. Thus the American people are obviously not eligible to ever have any of their tax money come back to help them out for a change.
All this just further discredits Putin.
Are you kidding me? He hasn't done anything. He isn't invading anybody and he is the one seen as the aggressor? The international banking cartel is putting the squeeze on one of the last guys that stands up to them. Face it Michael, pretty much the entire globe is bought off now.
BREAKING NEWS…!!!! BREAKING NEWS…!!!! BREAKING NEWS…!!!!! BREAKING NEWS…!!!!!
Historian and Anti Interventionalist Webster Tarpley, says the OCEE men captured by the Russian Separatists aren't OCEE observers at all but: NATO Intelligence Officers POSING as OCEE observers, out of uniform… in OCEE marked vehicle. If true, that would make them illegal combatant SPIES by the rules of war…. Subject to death penalty.
A GOTTA SEE…. Too funny for words…… http://tarpley.net/ Tarpley says OCEE is being pressured to play along, but so far has denighed any cover to or for the unfottunate prisoners… Where is Victoria Nuland, AKA Victoria Nudleman…?????
I'am starting to see this war in Ukraine like the war against Yugoslavia , I did not favor what the United States did to Yugoslavia . I don't even believe the American people know what happened in Yugoslavia yet . NATO NAZI I seen no difference in Yugoslavia and I see no difference in Ukraine either . Russia is acting very cautiously , I think more and more American people are catching on . I don't know how the truth can be brought to the American people when the mainstream media is under demon control . Just lie after lie distortion after distortion with so many facts omitted that a opposite picture is betrayed . In Yugoslavia we were told by Clinton perhaps a 100,000 young Muslim boys have been Killed by Orthodox Christian Serbs . The truth was that less than 1500 Muslims had been killed and most of them were killed by fellow Muslims trying to force them to revolt . We were told the United States had to bomb Serbs to prevent the Serbs from ethnically cleansing every one else . After they fighting ended we learned that 5 times as many orthodox Christians were forced to move from their land and homes as all the other people . But these truths have never been told . No in the United States the mainstream media is still repeating the lies that started the war against Serbia in the first place .
