Of course not. Without “coup” the whole country would be taken over, step by step, by your beloved shirtless garbage.

Ah my polish friend! Would that be in the same manner like when in 1968 brave Polish troops bursted into Czechoslovakia to teach them values of true communism, because their communism was not enough communist?

Some people still remember when Polish troops forced Czechs to drink beer from their boots...

Was that after the Munich Conference deal in 1938 when Poland took part of Czechoslovakia (upper Silesia) while Hitler was taking the Sudetenland?

That Stay Puff marshmellow guy is over the place.

In this photo taken on Sunday, April 13, Simon Ostrovsky, right, stands next to a Pro-Russian gunman at a seized police station in the eastern Ukraine town of Slovyansk. Ostrovsky, a journalist for VICE News, has not been seen since early Tuesday.

Always with the burning tires. They make better barriers before they are burned, rather than after. It’s all party, fun and games until you have burned all your tires.

Just before Russia invaded Finland, Poland and the Baltics.

“Russia Today is Kgb Thug Putin’s propaganda network”

Got a link for a Western Source you approve of, that is covering events in Slovyansk in near-real time??

I’ll be glad to review it, if you do.

Tweets from Andrew Roth - New York times:

We came through checkpt on Kharkiv-Rostov highway, army guys were allowing al-jazeera to film them, access to city was open during operation

City center is calm, no sense that the army is about to roll on city hall.

Nobody knows how many dead in Slavyansk Doctors confirm some gunshot wounds but so far we’ve been thrown out of two hospitals and the morgue

Heading toward Slavyansk via same army checkpoint I passed this morning. Most shooting reports in NW of city, that road is reportedly shut.

Correct, it is all so complicated. Did you know that when Czechoslovakia was falling apart in March 1939, both Poland and Hungary sent troops into eastern Slovak and the Carpathian region to take over, and even had a brief battle where about 100 on each side were killed? Just in general, all countries should feel free to take part in the border shift games but then shouldn’t be surprised when it turns out different (by helping unleash the chaos)!
