Uprising in eastern Ukraine : Kiev fears second cleavage

It's only a few weeks ago that Ukraine has lost the Crimea. Now go pro-Russian demonstrators in the east of the country getting massive on the barricades. Kiev accused Moscow to instigate the ringleaders .

Kiev - Ukraine to the east of the pro-Russian protests take too massive . Insurgents stormed the administration building in Donetsk , Kharkov and Lugansk. They hoisted the Russian flag - sometimes to the sounds of the Russian national anthem and Soviet battle songs . On Monday, protesters in Donetsk proclaimed a "sovereign People's Republic " .

The new pro-European central government in Kiev now fears that you might lose control there. The official version, even after completely demoralized police can grant the provocateurs . Pro-Russian activists call for referendums as on the Black Sea Crimea via a connection to Russia. And many calls for the Kremlin leader : "Putin , help ! "

After the fall of President Viktor Yanukovych chaos is always greater in the former stronghold of Serb refugees from Russia politician. Urgently warns of Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk about to go financed by Russia provocateurs on the glue. He sees the danger of a Russian invasion. But answers to the questions of the people , as the country is out of the crisis , he is not.

Yatsenyuk looks like everyone in the new pro-European leadership in Kiev almost daily increasing danger of the disintegration of the country. Especially demanded by Russia create a federal state with regions that should have strong autonomy rights, it looks as safe beginning of the end of an independent Ukraine.

Polls see no majority for accession to Russia

But unlike last in the Crimea , which Russia joined after a controversial referendum , there is no in Ukraine Russian armed forces - and according to surveys, no majority for accession to Russia. Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had also repeatedly asserted that the Crimea for Russia a special case and an invasion in the heartland of the crisis-ridden neighbor was not planned.

Nevertheless, the West can hardly believe this promise - probably because the atmosphere in large parts of the Russian population is now still retrieve the " original home areas " in eastern and southern Ukraine. Also, the withdrawal of troops on the eastern border with Ukraine is not progressing , what Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was disappointed on Monday . Foreign Minister Frank -Walter Steinmeier called Russia in terms of eastern Ukraine to exercise restraint in the " public comment or even support these events" on .

Currently, however, there is little evidence that Russia could resort to military means. Rather, the leadership in Moscow turns primarily to further economic screws. The responsibility for the recent developments in Eastern Ukraine rejects Moscow. " Enough of the accusations against Russia, which is blamed for all the current problems of Ukraine," the Foreign Ministry said on Monday . " The Ukrainian people demanded of Kiev clear answers to all the questions. " The leadership in Kiev must immediately change their " irresponsible attitude to the fate of the country ," it said .

This is Putin up to more mischief...I hope someone with some common sense in his country...like some of the Russian oligarchs who have so much to lose, slaps him silly, until he gets that this is a dangerous game of chicken he's playing and one that he will eventually lose. I just hope that thousands of people don't have to die in the process before he gets that the world isn't going to let him recreate the old Soviet Union...it will not be rising from any ashes, no matter how romantic an idea that may sound to a man in the midst of a mid-life crisis like he is right now. And please dude...put your damn shirt back on...you are not the stud you think you are! LOL

Super clooney-astic fantastic

UN Security Council emergency meeting just started, requested by Russia.......Our Hero's friend Samantha Power, now US Ambassador to the UN, will have a very busy evening........

Samantha Power: Putin’s Actions Suggest He Wants Eastern Ukraine

ABC News’ Adam Teicholz reports:

In a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with George Stephanopoulos this morning on “This Week,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power had harsh words for Russian President Vladimir Putin in the wake of pro-Russian soldiers’ recent takeovers of government buildings in several eastern Ukrainian cities.

Asked by Stephanopoulos if the U.S. believes that Putin “wants” Eastern Ukraine, Power responded, “I think the actions that he is undertaking certainly give credence to that idea. But I will say in the conversations that we have, of course, they keep insisting, ‘No, that’s not what we want, that’s not what we want.’ But everything they’re doing suggests the opposite.”
“The leadership in Ukraine have made very clear that they’re prepared to have a conversation about autonomy and decentralization,” Power added regarding eastern Ukraine, but Putin’s continued provocations “make you think that a military solution is what” he is seeking.

By contrast, Power issued a relatively tempered response to Saturday’s revelations of potential new chemical weapons attacks in Syria, saying the administration is still trying to confirm the reports.

“We are trying to run this down. So far, it’s unsubstantiated,” Power said. “But we’ve shown, I think in the past, that we will do everything in our power to establish what has happened and then consider possible steps in response.”
Asked whether the U.S. had any option but to strike militarily following President Obama’s “red line” comments and Syria’s promise to turn over its chemical arsenal last fall, Power responded that President Obama finds the use of chemical weapons to be “alarming” and “outrageous,” and the U.S. would have to “look at our policy on this.”

“That’s why he put the credible threat of military force on the table, that’s why we’ve been able to destroy and remove more than half of Syria’s chemical weapons up to this point,” Power said. “But certainly the point of what we’ve done so far is to prevent further use. We weren’t just removing for removing sake, it was to avoid use.”
Power was a prominent proponent of aggressive action to protect civilians in Syria against attacks by Assad forces in 2012 and 2013, but has been quieter on the subject since a Russian-brokered deal was put in place last September that allowed the Syrian regime to peacefully dismantle its chemical stockpile.

Remembering Rwanda

Power recently returned from Africa, where she visited Rwanda on the 20th anniversary of that country’s mass slaughter of the Tutsi ethnic minority. She also stopped in the Central African Republic, or CAR, where experts fear the outbreak of Rwanda-style genocide against Muslims by Christians today.

She said the crisis in CAR involves American national security interests that go beyond the mere defense of our values. The “Muslim population now in the Central African Republic has been displaced,” Power said, “and we know how dangerous that can be as unsavory elements get in [and] try to exploit” the persecution and disenfranchisement of religious minorities. Muslims make up about 15% of the Central African Republic’s populace. “This is a population that can be radicalized,” Power cautioned.

Power is the author of 2002′s “A Problem from Hell,” a Pulitzer-prize winning book about American inaction in the face of genocide. She told “This Week” that in the 20 years since the horror in Rwanda, the world has learned that “we can’t affect people’s desire to want to kill one another on ethnic, religious or other grounds.” But, she offered hopefully, “we’re much quicker” to respond to try to stop it.
In “A Problem from Hell,”the former journalist and professor Power admonished, “The United States should not frame its policy options in terms of doing nothing or unilaterally sending in the Marines.” That stark choice, she said, meant in the real world of political decision-making that the answer too often would be “doing nothing” in the face of human suffering abroad.

Now, Power is in a position to frame these policy choices herself, and she expressed optimism that in the United States, at least, her message has gotten through.
“We’ve learned the lesson that you can’t make the choice one, between doing nothing, on the one hand, and sending the U.S. Marines, on the other. There’s lots in between,” Power said.
