For those saying you didn't see it on the news:

Not many news organizations are covering this, but the news is spreading to use from our European friends that want to keep us in the loop. I learned of these events from my good friend in the Netherlands.

Also, don't feel any worse for not knowing what's going on over there. It's mostly our own society that doesn't want us to know about this. Notice how I didn't say government, but our society. You should try to keep YOURSELF informed instead of relying on news stations to bring it to you.

So what, you wanted this cartoon to properly symbolize the interference the EU feels to Ukraine and it's real motive of hurting Russia, rather than something simple?

The EU wants to have economical control over Ukraine and completely shut down Ukraine's own industry to make them rely on exporting raw natural resources to make a living
#82 to #15 - anon (02/20/2014) [-]
They do though, having another member state (especially one as close to Russia and as large as Ukraine) gives them more power on the world stage.

True, because they fear the all mighty Russian federation.

Berkut (riot cops) are now just straight up shooting people with AKs and sniper rifles now. Prostesters have been stealing guns too. Civil war soon?

I suppose throwing molotovs at the police didn't help matters.
User avatar #92 to #28 - commontroll ONLINE (02/21/2014) [-]
To be fair, I'd say it would be okay to shoot people who are lighting said cops on fire and shooting and beating them to death and ganging up on them, even as they're retreating. The media's been too obsessed with fighting the powah and the man, and being a rebel with a cause has been so romanticized lately. Both sides are **** , but the cops are just doing their job.
User avatar #210 to #92 - tkfourtwoone (02/21/2014) [-]
Cops have the duty to defend and protect the people, not the government and politicians.

If you side with the politicians against the people, you are nothing more than the worst scum of the earth, and deserve only torture and death.
User avatar #226 to #210 - commontroll ONLINE (02/21/2014) [-]
Wow. That's a bit drastic, don't you think? In fact, that's honestly twisted. I'm all for removing corrupt politicians, by force if necessary, but killing police officers and beating them with rocks as they're retreating for a cease fire is not okay. You want him gone? Have a revolution, storm the capitol and depose of him. Take care of the ones who are really the problem, not the ones who are taking orders from them. Would there still be others killed? Yes, but it'd be much quicker, and much less innocent bloodshed.

So **** you for thinking anybody should be tortured and burned to death because they're on the unpopular side. They were officers before this **** began, they didn't decide to join in just to fight protestors.

Also, your mentality is the exact problem I'm talking about, too many people are so obsessed with the rebels and revolutions, and yet all that's happening is people fighting in an area that actually is only symbolically important.

People keep on talking about how peaceful this protest is, but when you watch how the "protestors" are acting, you can see how much ******** that is. Yes, those politicians are ******** , but I don't trust the leaders of the opposition either, and I certainly don't agree with how the protestors are acting.

You, and almost all of the people involved in the whole Kiev riots are not acting the way Mr. Rogers knows y'all can.

Poor ukranians. They are being puppeteered. On one side you have west pooling strings, on other you have Russians. Only option fraction that is fighting only for Ukrainian goals are ultra nationalist. So basicly they have to ``pick`` beatween 3 evils.

I know thing or two about this. You see, Serbia was in similar situation in 2000. There was civil uprising and with relativly little blood shed we have removed president from power (1 person died I belive) and got our self prowestern govermant.....and they didnt do us a lot of good

western govts are having a real problem with weak leaders, i cant think of any leader of a western, democratic state that isnt either a complete ****** or an anemic loser, except possibly francois hollande, who at the very least has the will to act, if nothing else.
we really need a higher standard of leadership.

" i cant think of any leader of a western, democratic state that isnt either a complete ****** or an anemic loser, except possibly francois hollande"

You really went full retarded there, mate. Hollande is a socialistic WIMP, that can't do anything right.
Now, if you're talking about the German Iron Lady herself... then you have a point.
User avatar #242 to #201 - smithforprez (02/21/2014) [-]
he sent soldiers to fight extremists in mali, which is a hell of a lot more than anyone else did. I'm not saying he's a good leader, but compared to that dog molester cameron or merkel, the human brick, hollande seems alright. not great, just alright.
User avatar #243 to #242 - tkfourtwoone (02/21/2014) [-]
Yeah, he is so great he finally gave up his socialistic, moronic ideas and started listening to investors and business owners on how to get France out from near-bankruptcy.

I couldn't give less than 2 ***** about taking measures against extremists in Mali... when compared to assuring the economical survival of your country.
Something that Merkel does 1000 times better, mind you. Something that Cameron is also looking for, however I cannot agree with his isolationist politics.
Yes, the EU has way too much bureaucracy, so much that is detrimental to traditionally capitalist-conservative states such as UK... but it must survive, for the good of Europe.

I support the ultra nationalists. After what the Soviets did to Eastern Europe, especially Ukraine, they have every right to be nationalistic. I just hope they can restore some of the culture that had been destroyed thanks to communism.
User avatar #163 to #41 - historybuff ONLINE (02/21/2014) [-]
There is literally nothing wrong with Ultra-Nationalism in my mind. All it does is reinforce a countries opinion of itself to the point where the people living in it are actually proud of themselves and not self-insulting like many western nations have become. France for the French, Britain for the British, and the Ukraine for Ukrainians, simple as that.
User avatar #198 to #163 - tkfourtwoone (02/21/2014) [-]
Except that you're a complete retard that still lives in the 19th-20th century.

Nothing wrong with Ultra-nationalism... so I take it you're actually OK with Hitler?!

Wake up to the 21st century, being an isolated state is the worst thing that can happen to you, you ******* moron.
User avatar #200 to #198 - historybuff ONLINE (02/21/2014) [-]
sure, sure, go ahead and call me names, but I count literally nothing of substance in your response. If you'd care to actually talk about things as a rational human being, then do so, but refrain from calling people "morons" because their beliefs happen to be different.
It makes you no better than the "retard" you're attempting to call out.
User avatar #204 to #200 - tkfourtwoone (02/21/2014) [-]
"but I count literally nothing of substance in your response"

And that's because you're a complete idiot. I did mention one VERY good reason right at the end of the comment, but your nationalitard brain is incapable of discerning any reason or logic.

Nothing good comes with nationalism. Absolutely nothing. Only bigotism, hatred, xenophobia and at the very least an ounce of megalomania, thinking that somehow your country is "sacred" and "holy" while the rest around you are filth.

Patriotism? I can understand it and support it.
But Nationalism?! The whole "my country right or wrong" retarded thinking?! No, thank you!

It's because people like you Dictators like Hitler, Stalin, Mao etc. have risen to power. Because they tickled your absolutely retarded "nationalistic sentiments". Same happened here, with the Romanian Iron Guard, a group of far-right Orthodox loonies, that my retarded people still consider "heroes" because they committed crimes and massacres, all in the name of the ********** "right belief" and "to purge this holy land from foreigners and country traitors".

tl;dr - I ******* hate nationalism, due to many reasons. And any sane person should hate it too.
User avatar #199 to #198 - tkfourtwoone (02/21/2014) [-]
Hell, why did I mention Hitler?...

You want ultra-nationalism, with "Country X only for the people of Country X"?!?

THEN ******* MOVE TO NORTH KOREA, YOU HYPOCRITICAL SON OF A BITCH!

Dude calm down. Where have I been hypocritical? What have I said that contradicts anything else I've said?
User avatar #209 to #207 - tkfourtwoone (02/21/2014) [-]
You speak highly of ultra-nationalism, but you are most likely living in a 1st world, democratic country with democratic values, posting freely on the Internet.

If you value ultra-nationalism so much, then do us a favor and get your ass in North Korea. Which right now is the very definition of ultra-nationalism, that you seem to like humping so much.

If you're not going to actually respond to me, then you're not worth my time. I understand your opposition to nationalism, but if you're going to oppose it, do it right, don't use strawman arguments.

I'm glad the gravity of the situation is finally making headlines.
The Berkut is firing live rounds into crowds of protesters and from what I've heard, there's a group of what amounts to mercenaries on the other river preparing to reinforce them.
The situation is escalating beyond what the Ukrainian people can be expected to deal with and people are just going to keep dying unless someone else steps in.
#221 to #8 - spetsnaztm (02/21/2014) [-]
Great. Let's pay attention to what the Berkut are finally doing to defend themselves and control the situation and ignore the fact that the "peaceful protesters" have been shooting at them, beating the **** out of them, and throwing molotov cocktails not only at government buildings and property, but also at regular policemen, Berkut officers, and even border control officers who shouldn't be there in the first place.
