    It is entirely analogous to Czechoslovakia. The region is heavily dependent on Russia economically, much more so than on western Ukraine. Not only is Russian the dominant language, many, perhaps even the majority, of extended families have intermarried with Russians and have deep ties to Russia beyond just economic. Moscow doesn't need to encourage revolt. The population is revolting of it's own free will and will continue to revolt, especially once the full effects of IMF "reform" are felt. And if it is true that Moscow is supporting the revolt, consider it tit-for-tat given that our own State Department engineered the coup in Kiev, too impatient to allow matters to be settled by regular elections which were already scheduled for later in 2014.
