This morning Pro-Russian protesters took over a police building in the eastern Ukrainian city of Horlivka. Protesters confronted police and walked through the building, which had small fires burning and broken windows. Onlookers shouted at a severely beaten man in a police uniform as he was taken to an ambulance. As a result to this violent terrorist act Ukraine deployed forces to stop Pro-Russia groups. I think the main concern here is to discover if this is just an act of terrorism to overpower Ukrainian cities and in the end overrule other Ukrainian cities.
In addition, a new complication for the government in Kiev arises. Acting President, Oleksandr Turchynov, had given pro-Russian protesters in other eastern Ukrainian cities until 2 a.m. ET to disarm or face a “full-scale anti-terrorist operation” by Ukraine’s armed forces. But there was no movement at the regional government building in Donetsk, which has been occupied for more than a week. In Slaviansk, pro-Russian protesters milled around with makeshift shields outside the occupied police station’s. One of the affected cities, Horlivka, with a population of about 300,000, became at least the 10th city or town in eastern Ukraine where activists have taken over security or government buildings in recent days.
In conclusion, the city of Kiev blames Moscow for the unrest in the latest series of events ratcheting up tensions between Ukraine and Russia, which Kiev accuses of fomenting trouble in Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine. The main reason Kiev blames Moscow is because after the Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, backed out of a deal with the European Union in November in favor of closer ties with Russia and after months of protests in Kiev led to his ouster in February. Finally, it is revealed that the distrust among the population in eastern Ukraine is the base of Yanukovych’s power, which grew as the new national government shifted rapidly in a pro-Western direction. Shortly after pro-Russian elements occupied the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, which Russia annexed in March and since then, pro-Russian protesters have taken to the streets in eastern Ukraine and in some cases stormed and occupied buildings. I think the only force that will stop this chaos is “Justice,” as we in the U.S.A say Justice must be served, and also in order to bring the Trust back between these cities because trust is key especially in this situation to stop all the corruption.
