Circumstances that led to the escalation in Ukraine
Ahem! "Donald Trump was the president of Ukraine"???
You might wish to correct this, even after all these months.
I read the few comments and no one else seemed to have noticed this faux pas.
Question about the Maidan protests... how widespread were they throughout the country? Was there a significant difference in protests between the east and the west of the country?
Thank you Aleks!!!
thanks for your second comment :-)
Well, the maidan protest took solely place in Kiev on the "Maidan" square.
I'm not aware of more pro-junta protests, that took place at that time.
Pro Russian protests took place all across the south and east of Ukraine.
South: In Odessa unfortunately some 50 pro-RU protesters were burned to death by right wing Ukrainians.
Crimea: We know the story...
East: The protests have been transformed quickly into an armed conflict against the coup regime.
