"When Ukrainians kill Ukrainians I believe this is as close to a civil war as you can get," Lavrov said in an interview with Bloomberg television.

Columbia University's Timothy Frye and Greylock Capital's Andrey Popel have debated whether Ukraine is really on the verge.

Because we’re not a collection of vodka-soaked miscreants with nothing better to do.

Its a Con—They are using Putin as a Boogie Man to get money for their corrupt government from the USA. A few stories—a bit of Violence—and the bank is open for all the money they could ever use. If Putin does invade they lose—but he will not.

the big con is Putin raising anxiety in eastern Ukraine while he has absorbed Crimea and that action is already forgotten.......

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
“Forward, the Light Brigade!
“Charge for the guns!” he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Is Ukraine really on brink of civil war?

Or: "Is U.S .really on the brink of civil war?"

Or:"Is this what Obama and the Marxists really want?"

The Obama Administration and the State Department creating a bloody Civil War, in an election year, is horrible imagery for the Democrats, so the US Media is doing it’s best to say,

“It’s not a “Civil War” civil war, it’s kinda like “Rape” rape. It all depends on what your definition of “Is” is!”

Easy on the eyes and quick.

Sharp lady all around.

The Ukrainian investment banker kid was sharp and streetwise, like a lot of people from that part of Europe.

Interesting all the way around.

>i?" . . .the big con is Putin raising anxiety in eastern Ukraine . . ."

LOL, yeah, sure :

Did Putin create the 2010 election results, too?

Putin doesn't have to raise the anxiety level of people who already know exactly what sort of deal the Kiev Coup made with the devil in order to carry out their coup. They're looking at which Nazi wannabes were given important positions by the coup crowd and they know what's coming

No, not the anxiety level in Ukraine......

I’m thinking of the anxiety level in Washington, and Berlin and such NATO.

He said he was invested in the Ukrainian economy, so he's not all that sharp.

The map at 1:25 in the video shows Luhansk in the Donetsk oblast.

LOL.

Yushchenko didn't run in 2010. The map you posted isn't the 2010 results.

And before you post the correct map understand that Yanukovich ran as pro EU in 2010.

The Putin Administration would never dare do such a thing. And it's not like Putin needs to worry about elections, anyway.

Thanks, Dawg Brother...

Seems less like “Ukrainian vs Ukrainian” and more like “Ukrainian” vs “Russian-Wannabe”.

But seeing as they’re neighbors... yeah, it’s civil war.

God help them.

No, it’s not a con. Putin is very serious that he does not want a West-aligned Ukraine. He prefers a weak, divided buffer state
