    So this is what you want to emphasize, in order to get hits? Why not post on how the entire Ukrainian political group is to blame? Why not mention where would Ukraine be now, if Yanukovich would’ve become president? And you have the nerves to post your last name “Khokhlova”?

    Obviously, you must be living in a foreign country not knowing what happens in Ukraine daily. If you live in Ukraine, you must be under house arrest. Speak to the people that know what’s going on behind closed doors, then perhaps you comments and theories might hold water.
