  •  April 17 big in Donetsk (5+ / 0-)

    April 17 will be an interesting day within Ukraine.  A rally against separatism is planned in Donetsk that evening.  Donetsk Oblast is, rather oddly IMO, the focus of separatist activities.  If neither side offers violence, it should give Kiev an idea of how strongly people in Donetsk wish to remain Ukrainian.  

    The Euromaidan PR site has posted two articles with a sympathetic take on secession...well, one was sympathetic and the other was a Ukrainian nationalist who gave up on sharing a country with Donbas (the Donetsk region) and would prefer they got the hell out and take the babushki (pensioners as human shields) and titushki (thugs) with them.
