serious confrontations

Worsening Crisis

The Ukrainian Crisis is getting more violent. Confrontations are getting more personal and less than at arms length.

I suppose Russia is going to be blamed for this again. But this is a popular uprising. What could Russia have done? Send its own police force? And afterwards be accused of aggression for crossing the border?

Elections should have been held a long time ago. It could have solved the problem.

The West should be glad that the protesters are not armed! Otherwise civil war could have started.

Why the West encouraged a coup that started this still escapes me.

They should put their money where their mouths are.
