Late Thursday, Ukraine's parliament voted to approve a resolution that calls for the country's security services to pull back and end their crackdown on ongoing protests. The resolution states an end to the "anti-terrorist" operation against protesters and orders a release of all imprisoned protesters, as well as similar measures.
The degree to which Ukraine's security services do or do not obey this resolution is not actually the most important thing here. What makes this a really big deal is that the parliament is actually as well as symbolically undermining President Viktor Yanukovych challenging both his handling of the protests as well as the president himself. It's a very significantly symbolic blow to Yanukovych's legitimacy.

just as long as they back that up and run over him again
Nope. No bias there.....
Some good news out of Ukraine. The author is wrong, though. The key is whether the security forces obey parliament or not.
Yep. "John Marshall has made his decision. Now let him enforce it."
Soros is smiling.
At least parliament sees the writing on the wall. Hopefully Putin knows what’s good for him.
Significant first step in de escalation of tensions. Agree that it depends on whether security forces obey
True, on a separate note, it seems like some of the gov’t forces are actually siding with protestors in the West, that’s only backed by news on Facebook, but hey, it’s something.
Take heed, watch and learn people. Its almost ready to happen right here in American. Will our police and military turn of the Washington powers when the SHTF?
“Soros is smiling.”
I see you are one of the few who really understand the situation.
It’s hard to say. You see a lot of tough talk on FR, but a lot of whining about George Soros when someone actually does it.
Ain’t that the truth.
Huh? The president of Ukraine is the bad guy. Who cares about bias?
Wonder if they can help us get rid of our rino problems.
Well, if the uprising succeeds, we’ll owe Soros and his promoter Alex Jones a great big thanks!
