Just kicking him out even by vote (because we said so) is not the method of impeachment according to their own constitution.
That was a coup...not impeachment....
Irrelevant. Whatever the problems in Ukraine that doesn’t give Putin the right to roll tanks through the country.
There are thousands of US citizens living Ukraine. Should the kenyan send over a marine division to Ukraine uninvited to protect them?
The impeachment bill was authored by Nikolay Rudkovskiy, head of the Socialist Party in Ukraine, which is part of the ruling Party of Regions coalition. Mr Yanukovych said it was a "coup."
The vote to "remove Viktor Yanukovych from the post of president of Ukraine" was passed by 328 MPs. Such ballots, passed by what is called constitutional majority, are binding and enter into force with immediate effect, the BBC's Ukraine analyst Olexiy Solohubenko reports.
Coups don't happen when the Parliament including the President's own party votes for his removal and schedules new elections in a few months. Ukraine has been notorious for corrupt elections. There was even an attempt to kill one of the candidates by poisoning him.
The US had nothing to do with his removal.
