Ukraine was always been divided into two parts: East and West. East gravitates to Russia, West – to Europe. And in Parliament there were different political parties, including nationalist one, due to which Russian language in Ukraine was almost banned to use. So can you imagine this? You, and almost all in your town and in your region (80%) speak your language, write, watch movies in theaters, watch TV, listen to the radio, read papers, restaurant menus, signboards, documentation and documents, textbooks in schools and universities, all around you is on your own language, and one day all of this became in language you don’t know. Not in one day, of course, but in over a short period of time. It smells like genocide. Nationalism is only a one side of the colorful story.
All Ukrainians don’t like Yanukovich, who did many mistakes and let the situation get out of control. In 2013 people were peacefully protesting in Kiev against authority, but in 2014 others joined, including nationalists and bandits. And the riots began. I don’t know what all those people wanted but now some of them are disappointed with leaders who seized power in Kiev and West. As far as I know Europe had plans on Ukraine, but these plans were foiled. I’m sure it is all connected with each other. For example, one of the opposition leaders Klichko have ties with Germany.
