Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich appears bent on crushing the protest movement but the opposition won't go quietly. A right-wing nationalist party is seeking to benefit from the growing violence and has begun warning of a civil war.

It was only a matter of time before the Neo Nazis exploited the demonstrations for their own benefit.I fear though that the prediction of civil war is only to true.

Sad that many people have to live with violence on their mind. Wish they'd get rid of the hatred and be peaceful to others. Thanks Cal

Given that the President of the Ukraine is very much in Putin's pocket is obvious but also that the whole revolt is about the people wanting to get away from Russia: particularly the type of Russia Putin has created. It is becoming obvious that Putin is sort of going back to old habits like when he persuaded Georgia during the 2008 Olympics over South Osetia even though it was part of Georgian for centuries.

While Ukrainians and the world are waiting for the outcome of last night's negotiations and the number of deads of last night (another 30? hard to verify figures, estimations for three nights vary from 64 up to 'at least 100'), just to get things (a bit) straight(er):

According to what was said by Natalie Pasternak, member of Euromaïdan France, yesterday (feb 20) at french radio, allegations that right-wingers have taken over the protests are Putin-propaganda, and were not true.

She spoke of militia hired by authorities, armed with rifles, hiding on roofs to 'shoot to kill' protesters, many of whom are not armed at all, or 'just' with sticks to defend themselves against state-violence. Protests are going on for three months now, she said, and only recently things get out of hand on the protesters' side (cars burning, shopwindows breaking). Compared to protests in the west, she said, things happened rather calmly until now.

But this doesn't bring a solution, but this might counterbalance a bit other statements.

For those who understand french, listen to the following link.
Maybe not the most up-to-date (feb 20), but gives some background-information:
