      promised. In Crimea there are troops to 'protect' the Russian ethnic group.
      In a democracy, ethnic groups don't need such 'protection'.

      Here's what I was referring to,

      •  And all of this leads to "fascist invasion" how? (0+ / 0-)

        I have not seen any "fascism" from Russia in any of the links you've provided. However I've seen plenty of videos and photos from Kiev how neo-nazis with modern fascists banners and emblems were attacking police force, taken over government building, and attacking any Russian speaking bystander.

        And a side note: are you even aware that nazis in Russia are one of the most despised groups?

      Stepan Bandera is a controversial Ukrainian historical figure who conspired with Germany against the Soviet Union before Operation Barberosa which broke the German-Soviet non aggression pact.

      Guess which President gave him the award of "Hero of Ukraine" in 2010 just before the elections in order to increase his popularity? (The decision was widely condemned by Russian and Jewish groups who have also made reference to Bandera in regards to the extreme right parties involved in Maidan. It was also condemned at the European Parliament and was ruled illegal by the Ukrainian courts).

      "Come to Sochi, visit the gay clubs and play with the bears" - NOT a Russian advertising slogan.
