Please, the powerful tyrant stuff should be reserved for the coup "government" in Kiev who unleashed the Army on protesters after throwing out a legally elected government that would not unleash the Army on protesters. A very interesting contrast, that, and a good indication of who is a tyrant in the Ukraine.
The Ukrainian president was impeached for good reason. Our neo-Bolsheviks, never, ever bring up why.
Who would take this comment seriously? Yanukovich killed a hundred people on Maidan, the new Kiev government advance gets bogged down when the village folk blocks the road and the military refuses to open fire on civilians. Can you even appreciate the contrast? The criticism against the Kiev government in Ukraine is they haven't done very little while separatists run around with guns (up till yesterday). Right now in Slaviansk, Yanukovich might have done what Putin has done to Grozny, carpet bomb, artillery the hell out of it.
