Euromaidan was a small opposition movement that was against Ukrainian-Russian integration.

It was only after Yankovich sent in the Berkut to crack skulls, that thousands poured out into the streets in solidarity with the protesters. And then having realized yanukivich wanted to turn Ukraine into Russia they demanded his head.

The thing most people miss about the crimean incident is those people who lived there were mostly ethnic russians, wanted to be a part of russia, and were engaged in a guerilla war against the failing Ukraine government. You're all being fed lies by the jew run media.

I'm russian. The brother of my grandfather is living in Donetsk as well as his son (the cousin of my father). In my teens I came to Donetsk and later we went to sea.
His son came to Russia when Donetsk was bombed. And my father helped them, they worked for him. Later they returned to Donetsk.
Mother of my boss lives in Ukraine.
Do I need to explain that this war is an absurd?

How two feuding countries are tearing apart the Middle East.

The Saudis and Iranians have never actually declared war on each other. Instead, they fight indirectly by supporting opposing sides in other countries and inciting conflicts. This is known as proxy warfare.
And it’s had a devastating effect on the region. Countries, especially poor ones, can’t function if there are larger countries pulling strings within their borders.

And that’s exactly what's happening in the Middle East. The Saudi-Iranian rivalry has become a fight over influence, and the whole region is a battlefield.
