Re: Ukraine should be carefull..

I'm not convinced Ukraine is a shining beacon of light either. Politics in Ukraine appears to be a very dirty business.

I am of the view that Ukraines troubles stem from the fact that it has an East/West divide in its population, and the election of its leaders follows that divide. The Eastern population saw the "popular uprising" to remove a president who was from their faction as illegal, and personally I agree with them.

Whilst I think that Putin has some very unclean hands in the matter, I do think that Russia has a fair case that supporters of a close association with Russia have been treated unfairly. On the other hand, appropriating territory from the Ukraine is not the answer.
