Russia denounces the revolution in the Ukraine.
Via 20 Committee
"Things are moving very fast in Ukraine today. President Yanukovych, after the bloodbath this week on the streets of Kyiv, has been thrown out of office by the parliament. The country is in turmoil, and in the east, centered on Kharkiv, the Moscow-backed Ukrainian Front that I informed you of three weeks ago, is arming the population and preparing for war.
And now the Russian Foreign Ministry has made its position clear in a new press release on its website – the new government in Kyiv is illegitimate and it’s the West’s fault. This is a remarkably rough diplomatic message. It cannot be construed as anything less than a threat to an independent Ukraine."
Meanwhile, crowds in the western Ukraine topple a statue of the hated Russian Communist, V.I. Lenin.
Note that since this film, Yanukovych has fled Kiev for the eastern city of Kharkiv.
