I didn't see any thread about this, so I thought I'd start one. What are your thoughts about the current protests in Ukraine? Personally I don't know what to think; it's a very complex situation and much bigger powers are involved in the conflict than just the protesters and their government. To make matters even more difficult, the press coverage is extremely polarised. Most articles I've seen seem to side more or less with the protesters, but today, excerpts from Russian networks were shown on the (Belgian) news and they literally said that "[the protesters were] all right-wing terrorists and neo-nazis doing a coup on the democratically elected government" and "nobody should listen to Western news and journalists", and then there's also this... In any case I feel bad for the many casualties on both sides.
