caww, stop patronizing this guy, what facts is he presenting here? Can't keep the order of things straight, doesn't even know what the dear leader Putin said.
The Ukrainian Constitution has very specific rules for Presidential impeachment, and a majority vote in parliament isn't one of them. Neither is mob rule.
Keep trying donkey.
You are a Russkie troll who doesn't know what he is talking about. The violence was initiated by Yanukovych who sent his henchmen to beat a small group of protestors, followed by kidnappings and torture, and finally the shootings. This is what resulted in the Maidan, which caused Yanukovych to lose all support even from his own party. It was the legitimately elected Rada that ultimately sealed the deal, not "violence and force" as you dishonestly allege.
The evidence has been clear for sometime.
Provide it then, Russkie.
Politically Nato and US pushed for new elections quickly and had Poroshenko lined up months before. There's a boatload of evidence which shows and proves as much.
Provide it then, Russkie.
What they couldn't guage was the response of the Eastern Population to resist the new Kiev Gov...and it went form there.
You are a liar, Russkie, as you have been shown many times that support for separatism was and is a minority in the East and South. Yet you continue to repeat your lies, regardless of what anyone says to you.
Hell will swallow you up one day, Russkie!
The violence was the cirruptocrat sicking the troops on peaceful protesters.
Yanukovych wasn’t impeached. He was removed because he was unable to fulfil his duties having fled the country. It was his prerogative to flee. But a country still needs a president.
Sorry, no pictures for the simple-minded.
Sorry, you got it confused with the country to the east. Happens all the time. A year ago, probably couldn’t find Ukraine on the map, right? :))
Where have I lied, what are babbling about?
There’s also no provision in the Ukrainian constitution for removing a president if one had been taken by the UFO, kidnapped by Al Qaeda, or kills a hundred people and abandons his duties by fleeing the country.
Ones under duress fled the country, vast majority in parliament remained at work
I made my assertion and backed it up. You pulled your "assertion" out of your "behind."
Oh, the terrible injustice of it all . . . a poor Russian being prevented from spreading his Russian BS on an American website, and his fellow-travelers whining about it.
The purpose of the extraordinary parliamentary session that evening was to pass a resolution returning Ukraine to the 2004 version of the constitution and pledging to form a unity government, thereby weakening the power of the President.
This was the first step of the negotiated Feb 21 agreement with the opposition and witnessed by no less than three European Union countries.
The resolution to return to the 2004 constitution passed 386-0 including 140 votes from the Party of Regions. Then the armed radicals showed up and demanded a second vote to impeach Yanukovitch. That coerced vote failed to garner the number required by the constitution despite physical attacks on some parliamentary members.
Yanukovitch was already planning to travel to eastern Ukraine that evening for a gathering of his political party over the weekend. The radicals tried to kill him as he left Kiev, shooting at his vehicle and injuring one of his aides.
Now you come along and present these events as lawful.
This is why Ukraine is a failed state. You people simply cannot be honest with each other about anything...including the time of day.
Both Russia and Ukraine use the same Soviet-era vehicles.
The destroyed column of military belonged to Kiev forces.
Poroshenko is attempting lame spin. The problem is that he always has to retract his own claims.
Like Hitler in 1945, Porosenko raised conscription age limit to over 60 years of age for men. Next step will be to conscript grannies over 70.
The thing is that most of these guys favor violence and fascism as long as it is done by Putin or his allies, and they favor it especially when the victims are peaceful idealist whom they see as weak. When Yanukovych’s police were shooting peaceful demonstrators, he was only doing what Assad had done under similar Russian instruction.
In your mind, anyone who opposes Putin is Hitler.
Since no one knows, yet, to whom the military column belonged . . . who is spinning?
That’s amazing, you can’t even get the chronology right. Vote on the 2004 constitution was not on the same day as the vote on removal of Yanukovych.
February 21: Parliament votes to return to the 2014 Constituition
Night of February 22: Yanukovich flees. HE might say he was travelling to Kharkiv but when papers get burned and trailer trucks move personal belongings out of his residences - he’s fleeing.
February 22: Parliament votes on removal
If you can’t get something basic as this chronology correct, you should stop. You’re not helping the cause and the almighty Putin will not be happy.
Too bad Yanukovich wasn't stopped and Ceausescued on the spot for what he did to the country. Who in their right mind would defend this crook and murderer
