I said, the Ukrainians are upset about their gov. not making the EU deal, not about Putin.
Actually, I cannot say what we are upset about more. I will try to explain. Not making the EU deal has been a catalyst (not sure there's such word, sorry, but you'd understand the mean). Yes, we wanted that agreement (by we I mean Kiev and Western Ukraine), but that would not be the reason of another revolution. We are sick of politics. But beating up people who peacefully protest IS the reason.
Russia's aggression is only a secondary reason. We do realise our neighbor wants our territory back. We understand that Putin wants Ukraine be theirs as Belarus as Kazahkstan as Armenia etc. But we don't fight against Russia, we fight against over goverment that lost its mind. That attacked people.
I bet Putin smiles a lot this day. He has seemingly won.
The gov., if they are attacking the people 1st, should not be, but the gov. has to defend itself against dumb people if that's how they want to act, these people don't know what's really going on, and are only making things worse.
Hey, but we are not dumb. I am a leading engineer in my company. My boss, a top-manager of world-known corporation's department in Ukraine said to ALL that on Monday we are going or not going to work depending on the situation. He is going to protest too. He's not Ukrainian. Again, it's not 'working class' who are protesting now.
Kiev is going to be a mess soon. I am going in the center now. Hope to write back in the evening. Mobile connection there is down.
