Surprised there hasn't been a discussion on this yet.
The situation looks pretty shitty. Two groups of nationalists fighting over whether they wish to be tied to Europe or tied to Russia. Far right organisations armed and taking a leading role in the protests. Russian speaking areas threatening to secede from Ukraine. The chief Rabbi in Kiev has urged Jews to leave the city, if not the country.
Wouldn't want to be in Ukraine right now. Russian speaking people in the North and West are gonna get shit, Ukrainian speaking people in the South and East are gonna get shit, and if your not Russian or Ukrainian your probably fucked wherever you go.
It's all a bit baffling, if working class people can get this worked up over whether they'd rather be allied to Russian Imperialism or European Imperialism, why can't they fight for their own interests? :/
