Unfortunately this article is a piece of one-sided activism. Not all the protestors are peaceful. There are many neonazis among young pretestors from W. Ukraine, they are agressive at times. It's scary to run into them after sunset. I know Ukrainian language very well and can speak, but I don't want to be assaulted by nazis only for speaking Russian language, while talking on my cell phone. They told me to pack my belongings and go to Russia. Why?! I was born in Kiev and spent most of my life there, while those young people just arrived.

I agree with Elena. And lets not forget that should Ukraine join the EU, all its heavy industry, that has close ties with russian industry, will decline. And if that happens, Ukraine loses her last bits of economical independence. And EU is enthusiastic to welcome another Romania in their ranks. History is never black and white, let's not forget Khrushchev saying that Ukrainian freedom fighters killed close to one million soldiers of the Red Army between 1944-1956.
