Good news and bad news.....if anyone thinks this marks the end of the "Ukrainian Spring", then you haven't been paying attention for the last 15 years as Ukraine has gone from crisis to crisis to crisis.  We shall see how this goes, but the violence is far from over and the country remains as deeply divided as it ever was.

I do hope they calm things down by the time Sochi is finally over, or the Russians, having nothing better to do, may well decide to come visit and quite things down for them.

Developing....

You are correct, it is certainly "Developing..." but at least this appears to be (at least a temporary) victory for the Ukrainian people!  Thank you for posting this story!

As deeply divided as our own country is?

What has happened there.... can happen here, as well.

Will it?

Depends on which "Ukrainian People" you happen to belong to at the moment.....

Therein lies the real nub.  Putin hasn't been too coy about wanting to re-establish the geographic sovereignity of the old Soviet Union, so he might get to thinking of this as an invite to pull Ukraine back into the fold.  Shades of Czechoslovakia all over again.
