Mar 28, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Fresno Bee

The statement from Viktor Yanukovych, the former Ukrainian leader who fled to Russia last month after three months of protests, raised the threat of further instability in Ukraine's Russian-speaking eastern provinces, where many resent the new Ukrainian government.

At least now all Ukranians can see his true colors, he wanted Ukraine to go back to Russia all along, good riddance to the idiot. Hopefully they arrest him one day, if Putin was a true leader he would have aided in the arrest of him for his illegal acts in Ukraine.

We already knew his true colours, he also urged Russia to invade Ukraine, he is a traitor and should be arrested immediately if he ever tries to return to Ukraine.

Why shouldn't they have a referendum? It would be un-democratic to deny them one. Would America, the bastion of democracy in the modern world, rather they had a coup?

They didn't conspire with the US government, you moron, only a gullible fool such as yourself believes RT propaganda.

It's Putin's Russian Empire which is evil, US hasn't illegally taken any part of Ukraine, Putin has.

Firstly, there was no overthrow of a government in Ukraine, unless you are talking about Crimea and Russia put a stooge in there. The Ukranian parliament kick Yanakovyck out because he stole billions from the people, laudered money with with son and created treason by working with Putin to sell out Ukraine, he should be hanged by the neck for what he has done and if he does make it back to Ukraine and caught that is what will happen. The people that were shooting at protestors and police have been getting arrested and the Nazis you talk about as doing this are turning out to confess at being RUSSIAN and sent by Putin.

You really do need to get off the smack and back on the anti-psychotics. As for Ukraine, there is none! There is only the might of Russia as uncle tom obammy backs down at a rate of knots. Russia will draw the new border and the part outside of Russia, west Ukraine, is and will always be a wasteland, inhabited by smack heads and Nazis!

Crimea was Russian for centuries and Ukraine stole it. So Putin did not do anything illegal; he just took his stolen property back.

U.S. also did not do anything illegal. Ukraine’s gold reserves are already in the U.S., with the permission of Ukraine’s “acting president”, who Americans installed.

So the only evil people are Ukrainians. They steel their brotherly country’s land, like they stole Crimea, but give their wealth in trust to foreigners.

Hey shitforbrains, maybe you and Oliver should do some reading and catch up. PUTIN called Obama to set up a meeting with Lazrov and Kerry in Geneva to work our a diplomatic solution, it was not Obama backing down nor Putin but a call for a solution, so maybe when you are done with your play soldiers you can put them away in the drawer and go to your room.

Ukraine didn't steal anything. Krushchev lawfully transferred Crimea to Ukraine in 1954.
Before the war there were hardly any Russians living in Crimea, it was mainly Tatars, but Stalin moved them all out and the Russians moved in.
Russians don't have any moral right to claim Crimea is theirs, they took it illegally.

It was poo poo Pootiniski that called Obama. Looks like the sanctions are taking a bite at the top rozie roosian leadership. As far as Yaknowitch is concern he is a THIEF and show have NOT been permitted to run for president of Ukraine from day one. People of Ukraine barely elected him, but they gave him a chance to govern Ukraine. Instead of governing the country Yaknowich chose to LOOT, BLUNDER the country to nearly bankrupt state. Look at his HOUSE of CORRUPTION which is better know as Ukraine's Disney Land. Furthermore 12 million dollars of cash was found in his house. decorations for his tea room and dining hall 2.3 million dollars, Curtains for a room $110,000 statue of a wild boar $115,000 1.5 million worth of plants etc. So why is he running away claiming he did nothing wrong. He should come out of poo poo pootiniski's skirt and back to Kiev to answer to Ukrainian people. To sum this up. Yaknowitch sat on his fat arse and failed to work with the east as well as west Ukraine to make it a better country. Ukrainian people did the right thing and got rid of that corrupt looter. This is nothing to do with the russian speaking people. No one is attacking Russian people in the east, only pootiniski stirring up trouble to use this as an excuse to GRAB more territory. Pooiniski with the NAZI mentallity must be and he will be STOPPED! Yaknowitch is no longer president of Ukraine and he has no say

Well maybe Putin is just being reasonable and giving the US a chance to calm down and start talking instead of warning and threatening everytime they open their big mouth,getting rid of Politicians in a Democracy is done through elections not by Nazi storm troopers on the streets,its really as simple as that.

Obviously, George thinks that Putin is so hurting from economic sanctions that he wants the opportunity to beg Obama for forgiveness and promise to undo Crimea. LOL
