A live stream to a revolt against an oppressive government? Our jug-eared dictator Barry would never allow that here.

I had the situation explained to me thusly: During the Soviet years, ethnic Ukrainians were replaced by ethnic Russians through disease and starvation brought about by Stalin. These ethnic Russians now constitute a large chunk of the Ukrainiand population and want allegience to Moscow, while the remaining ethnic Ukrainians want to look westward (The EU). That is the basis of the demonstrations.

The bright light on the left is coming from the Police side. There’s a riot line there covering the flank of another line blocking the street with the fires burning in it to the right side of the screen.

Molotov cocktails were being thrown at riot line on the left side of the screen.

Thanks. I have a fb friend from Ukraine who has been reporting on the unrest over there. I’m going to post it to that group. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it, if they don’t block it.

Got it running in IE. It looks like the EU backed protesters are not being eco-friendly. They’ll need to buy some carbon credits from AlGore.

I’m wondering how long it’s going to be before the tire barricade across the street becomes a bonfire.

I guess a large fire like that would be good for blinding night vision and the smoke also provides a screen.

Most folks are just standing around. I saw a skyrocket go off. A few Molotov cocktails. There’s a big fire but I can’t tell what’s burning. Lots of folks up at 1 AM.

I’m fascinated watching this.

The protesters have the wind at their back and I can’t imagine how the riot line can take that much smoke.

Spreading to other cities...they are going into Politicians offices demanding resignations etc. As follows:

Activists stormed into regional governor Oleh Salo’s office in Lviv and forced him to sign resignation papers. Salo is now saying he signed it under duress and the resignation is invalid........Another group of activists smashed their way into the governor’s office in Rivne and shouted, “Down with the gang!” Opposition refers to the president’s government as the gang. There are reports of riots in Zhytomyr, Vinnytsya, Khmelnytskiy, and Ivano-Frankivsk.

I had one of these when I was a kid and could hurl a baseball sized water balloon about 150 yards.

This looks like nothing so much as a party.

A few folks piling tires onto the fire, a few skyrockets and fireworks, a few camera flashes, and lots of standing around.

Still trying to decide who to cheer for - the EU puppets or the Russian puppets?

I didn’t mean to imply that the event was a party, only the particular view on the one channel. Apologies for a misleading insinuation.

I saw a live feed just a bit ago (it crashed) it looked like the "On My Command, Unleash Hell scene" from Gladiator.

They must have a goodly number of those Molotov Slingshots because they were flinging that shit about half a football field or more and they were doing it in volleys!

Understood....I believe this is much like what was seen in Egypt when the people revolted against the Government....but they do not have the military on their side...at least not yet.

Nasty business happening there...and i agree with the poster who mentioned this being about if or not Ukraine can maintain their hope to be part of the EU or if it will return to Putin’s domain.

Putin will fight this and already made several deals with the Current Leadership.....he’s not going to let this go now he’s got his claws in this nation IMO. Though he may step back again.
