So What’s Really Happening In Ukraine?

Hint: It’s not as clear-cut as the anchors at RT (the ones who haven’t quit in protest, anyway) make it seem.
Just as it’s hard to know what’s really going on in Latin America without a working knowledge of Spanish, it’s hard to know what’s really going on in Ukraine and Russia without at least a working knowledge of Russian. I don’t have that knowledge, but I know someone who does, and here’s what he has to say:
Look, bottom line:
Yanukovich asked the Berkut (Riot Police) to fire on the Ukranian People. The Berkut chief declined and RESIGNED which was the right thing to do. That is what the Occupy people here would have said, right?
And that caused a crisis; particularly for the “Party of Regions” which is Yanukovich’s party. The Rada (Ukranian Parliament) agreed, and so did Party of Regions with the Riot Police guy and said ” FUCK YOU – YOU CANNOT order our soldiers to fire on our people!”
Fast forward to today; in Russia the opposition news networks have been silenced – the NDAA or SOPA the Left in the US has feared was just put in place by – PUTIN! You can get Channel Rain or Echo of Moscow – but Russians and Ukrainians can’t.
So you tell these idiots at FDL they have been backing the wrong horse in this race. Dan Wright in particular. Fucking wrong from the first day he bothered to notice the Maidan.
From my friends in the U:
