"Any discussion about the future of Ukraine must include the legitimate government of Ukraine. In 2014 we are long beyond the days when borders could be redrawn over the heads of democratic leaders."
— U.S. President Barack Obama says referendum in Crimea would "violate the Ukrainian Constitution and violate international law."
This will be a farce, this will be falsefication, this will be a crime against the state, which was organized by the military of the Russian Federation.
Ukraine has a big problem with liberals – they don’t exist as a self-sufficient strong political trend. Both political camps are dominated by right populist ideologies – a wild mix of conservatism and nationalism. That’s the main problem, because the actual number of the ultra right activists is not that big, it’s even tiny compared to the crowd which at some times consisted of 100 thousand people or even more; while the full mobilization potential of fascists from all Ukraine is approximately 1-2 thousands. But, first of all, their ideas are welcome among the apolitical crowd; second of all, they are very well organized, and also people love their “radicalism”. An average Ukrainian worker hates the police and the government but he will never fight them openly and risk his comfort. So he or she welcomes a “vanguard” which is ready to fight on their behalf; especially if that vanguard shares “good” patriotic values.
