    Default Ukraine - Now A Shooting War

    No Protester Is Safe From Snipers Or AK-47s In Ukraine

    A multitude of videos circulating the Internet show the outrageous levels of violence in the Ukrainian capital. In one video from Radio Svoboda, Radio Free Europe's Russian service, a riot policeman with an unmistakable AK-47 assault rifle fires off the screen.

    Bodies line the streets of Kiev, and no end to the bloodshed appears to be in sight. Protesters have taken 67 policemen hostage, and the government has declared riot police "have the right to use" combat weapons to free the police hostages.

    The violence in Ukraine has drawn condemnation from around the world, and has put the tug-of-war between East and West in Ukraine into full public view. U.S. President Barack Obama urged on Wednesday for Ukraine's military to show "restraint and for the government to withdraw riot police." But earlier Thursday, Russia stoked the fires, with Russian Prime Minister warning Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to not allow opponents to walk over him "like a doormat."

    Looks like something from our potential future.
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    "If they’re going to come here illegally, apply for & receive assistance through a corrupted Government agency encouraging this lawless behavior, work under the table & send billions of dollars each year back to their families in Mexico, while bleeding local economies dry, protest in our streets waving their Mexican flags DEMANDING rights, while I have to press ’1′ for English, then they need to be shipped back to where they came from!" -Chad Miller

    Bank Runs Begin In Ukraine As Russia’s Largest Bank Halts Lending



    zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 02/21/2014 08:14 -0500

    Six months ago a “glitch” halted all ATM withdrawals, and Credit and Debit card transactions for Russia’s largest bank but today, the CEO of the huge bank has no such “glitch” to blame:

    *SBERBANK SEES RUN ON ITS BANK MACHINES IN UKRAINE, GREF SAYS
    *UKRAINE SITUATION IS PRESSURING RUBLE: SBERBANK CEO GREF
    *SBERBANK HALTS LENDING IN UKRAINE, GREF SAYS

    We suspect that whether an agreement is in place or not, this will continue.

    Ukrainian Army needs to step in on the side of the protestors and wipe out the Commie backed Security Forces IMHO.

    Dont worry Obama issued a very stern warning to stop or he will refuse to let some high up into the country .

    I expect a immediate stop to all violence in the region as Obama's warnings will strike fear into any one there .

    Default Ukraine protesters take Kiev; president says coup

    Ukraine protesters take Kiev; president says coup

    Snippit:

    KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Protesters took control of Ukraine's capital Saturday, seizing the president's office as parliament voted to remove him and hold new elections. President Viktor Yanukovych described the events as a coup and insisted he would not step down.

    After a tumultuous week that left scores dead and Ukraine's political destiny in flux, fears mounted that the country could split in two — a Europe-leaning west and a Russian-leaning east and south.

    Parliament arranged the release of Yanukovych's arch-rival, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who was on her way to Kiev to join the protesters. She promised to run for president, and said she will "make it so that no drop of blood that was spilled will be forgotten."

    Yanukovych said he would not recognize any of the lawmakers' decisions as valid. He left Kiev for his support base in the country's Russian-speaking east, where lawmakers questioned the legitimacy of the newly empowered legislature and called for volunteer militias to uphold order.

    Black Blade: Looks like a possible Civil War between the east and west for control. This could just be the start. Maybe we should be concerned about the availability f "cheap" 4.45x39 and 7.62x54R ammo now
