World News - Ukraine

There seems to be an ebb and flow to developments in Ukraine. Things get interesting, and then they quiet down, and then they get interesting again. Today there were many protests across eastern Ukraine, and several more government buildings were occupied (which is not new). What is different this time is that the government buildings were occupied by armed men (which is new). So it seems as if the occupiers are more determined to stay in control of the buildings they have occupied which makes things a lot more interesting. The men who occupied the buildings are also waving Russian flags from them, which is definitely provocative. Now we have a new form of defiance. How will the Ukrainian government act? Will there be blood shed? Will Russia send in troops to "protect" the occupiers? Things are interesting again.

What do you think?
