What is going on over there? Aren't the president and the Ukrainian goverment on the same side? This article is confusing? The soldiers have a commander who is faithful to the president, and these same soldiers have a minister that is faithful to the government. Don't the minister and the president work for the same government? Gee whiz???

It is a parliamentary form of government, remember. Parliament and President elected separately. Minister of the Interior Appointed by Parliament. Commander of the “troops of the interior ministry” (i.e. State Security Police) is said to be loyal to the President. Looks like a coup-d’etat shaping up.

Thanks for the reply. I understand what you are saying.
PS: Who do we (US) root for in all of this? The president or the minister?

Russia voices worry over Ukraine developments UPDATE
Oh brother. Does this bring back some memories or what? Next thing you know Putin will say that Russian troops will invade the Ukraine in response to an urgent request by the ministry.

Those here in the US that stand for Freedom stand beside President Viktor Yushchenko. Vlad Putin and his evil minions in the imperialist Parliament stand between the Ukrainian people and peace.

That commie sob does not stop. One week he is attacking a sovereign nation through the Internet, riots, energy blackmail in the dead of winter, Kremlin control of all Russkie TV media, sending his Nashi goons to break into embassies, assassinating media critics (on both sides of the Atlantic), and now what looks like an actually military coup the Ukraine (since the poison did not murder that nation's president.)
1938 in reverse - as world's leaders remain in their slumber.

Putin was well tutored in the history of Moscow's invasions.
East Germany, 1953, Russian tanks ordered to crush resistance to Moscow's brutal system of communist slavery.
