DESCRIPTION:In this episode of Society of Geeks we look at some of the reasons behind the Situation in Ukraine. How did the war break out and which countries are involved in it.
The future developments in Ukraine will be significantly important for the relationship between the European Union, the United States and Russia and whether the heavy amount of outside interests from all sides on the country is promoting peace, may be up for debate.
Ultimately the citizens will have hard choices to make in the future. To choose between Nato and Russia. To choose between the European Union and the Eurasion Union and to choose between the countrys unity or separation, no matter what happens, it will affect us all.

Rusia is as imperialist as the US. Ukraine should have the right of auto determination, but Putin believes that he is a Czar and wants to take back Ukraine. That is the main reason. Nowadays there is absolutely no reason to have “buffer” countries between Russia and Europe. That is bullshit!

Funny you don't go back in history we're Russia started in Kiev. Modern-day Ukraine

''Is up to debate if this was unconstitutional'', you lying prick. removing some one from power through sponsoring coup its definitely unconstitutional.

If Ukraine being NATO , The US warhead will land install on UK land and it relief EU from being main forward battlefield to be Ukraine instead. Why Ukraine people chose this way. It's very surprising.
If Ukraine choose Eu and Nato half or more of todays Ukraine will be a part of Russia so Ukraineans i suggest you to choose Russia it is better for you.

There's a great documentary called Ukrainian Agony
It's more independent view on matter than propaganda shrouded western or eastern media

Bullshit - the Eurasian union has nothing in common with the EU, apart from the word "union" .. a more accurate name would be "the Soviet union 2.0" or "Russia's puppet area".. apart form that, though, it was a nice video indeed

Ukraine belongs to the Russian Federation. They are Brothers.

we were surprised, the Soviet Union was a very developed country, and they used to help Indonesia to become an independent and sovereign country, but now the Soviet Union has collapsed, what amazes us in Indonesia is why Russia & Ukraine behave like we were Indonesians in the past? where we were fought with each other with bad propagandas than invaded by the British who used the Netherlands and America, so we had to ask for help from the Soviet Union at that time ... crying and hope from us at Indonesia, plss shame on yourself

How about understanding the situation in 10 seconds instead? Crimea is ethnically Russian. Krushchev, being a dick, gave it to the Ukes in 1954. The Ukes are now corrupt losers. They held a Referendum in the Crimea. That means that the Public had a vote. They voted overwhelmingly to re-join Mother Russia. Most of the Ukes that live there voted in favor, too. That's called Democracy in action.

As a seventy year old i listen to this young man and the question as to his education into what is happening in the Ukraine leaves more than a lot to be deserved.
For a start, Russia did not annex Crimea and it did not organize the referendum, Russia made the move to increase its troops in Crimea after a referendum not before, and then it only increased the number to that which had been agreed for years, but under which in normal cercumstances, the level had been almost halved, Crimea asked Russia if it could rejoin, and Russia having a base there for which they have been paying the Ukraine a large sum each year to have this base there.
As for thos in east Ukraine, after having seen very clearly the nature of a neo nazi organization bei g put into power by AMERICA, and please before jumping upand down first listen to the conversation of Victoria Newland where she ta,ks aboutwho AMERICA considers to put into power, and just how much AMERICA HAD SPENT TO CAUSE THIS TROUBLE, FIVE BILLION DOLLARS of your taxes, to topple a legal govdrnment who had already agreed to hold a n election.
The people of east Ukraine had no wish to be ruled by a nazi backed government and also had a legal referendum, tbey voted for seperation, something America had seen fit during the Kosovo trouble to force the U. N . To re-write the rules so Kosovo could gain independance, but did not like it when the very same rules were used by the people of east Ukraine.
I would strongly reckomend anyone who doubts the above to do some homework of their own, a d stop the lets blame Russia trip that America has adopted for all their ills.

South-East Ukraine: Crisis Diary Understanding the Situation in Ukraine using 6 months ago   25:19

While Crimea has already had a referendum, the situation in other Ukrainian regions is still unstable. People want their voices to be heard and are demanding a vote. RT managed to get footage from people living in various cities in southeastern Ukraine. Many of the videos and interviews you will see in this film have never been shown on television.
