Ukraine: Non-Violent Crisis

MoldovAnn shares her impressions of living “in the midst of our own little political mess in Ukraine”: “I had a chuckle when a friend of mine working in Afghanistan IM’d me on Monday to check if I am OK. I had to chuckle at the irony. The worst thing that seems to have happened so far is that all the shops around here are completely sold out of everything. These are Ukrainians, I told her, generally pretty nice people. Except for in stores, or the post office, or in any kind of service job.”
