Ukraine Leader Driven From Power By Street Protesters

Deposed Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovych had a pretty extensive private zoo.

it boasted a man-made lake as large as several football fields with a life-sized galleon and a zoo with deer, ostriches, peacocks and other animals.

Did he get the money from that from his own government or Russia?

This is a big setback for Vladimir Putin. What can he do? Try to stoke a separationist movement in the regions with large Russian populations including the Crimea.

Will the Ukraine revolution strengthen the position of the opposition in Venezuela? Certainly Ukraine is a powerful reminder that a government can be overthrown. But in Venezuela the middle class opposition might be outnumbered by the lower class supporters of the government.

There's a suspicious similarity to these 'revolutions'.

Just say'in.

In this article there is a long discussion of the 2004 assassination attempt by dioxin poisoning that nearly killed the former president Yushchenko:

And more recently, the imprisonment of the other president Tymoshenko was also quite dubious:

This is a very competitive society.
