  1. Because local ukrainians in Ukraine are pinned down under high inflation, and corruption, and the theivery of Yanukovich’s Oligarchy! Standard of living in Ukraine, is not anywhere near what it is in Britain, Canada, Australia, and USA. Even these nations are feeling a crunch, but you asked. God bless Ukraine for standing up for so long, while others have been falling for so long. Amen. Impeach Yanukovich, and replace him wisely! No vadka for anyone in Ukraine for the next century either! Amen.

  2. Bottom line: The diaspora cares more about preserving the Ukrainian language more than those who live there. I have met many Ukrainians born in Ukraine especially the Eastern parts that PREFER to speak Russian even though they know the Ukrainian language. They informed me that it’s because they feel that the Russian language is more ‘relevant’ or better respected. I was appalled. They simply didn’t care about the language issue. How can we help from abroad when change doesn’t happen from within? And lets stop blaming Ukraine’s bad economical/ political position. They voted Yanukovich and his corrupt thugs into government. If ALL the people in Ukraine, not just those born in Western Ukraine, UNITED against this cause instead of accepting it they could preserve the Ukrainian language. This is just one step closer to being swallowed up by Russia…..yet again.

  3. There are many protests in Ukraine. Now there is an effort to impeach Yanukovich. But what you have in Eastern Ukraine, is a mix of Russians, Communists, and those brainwashed and under the influence of Moscow, which were forcefully moved onto Ukraine’s soil after 1932-1933, and fled away from Ukraine’s soil as though they were fleeing from a land coverred with haunted houses, and the dead were scratching on their bedframes and doors at night asking for food, and asking for a reason as to why Stalin starved their family members to death.

  4. They do not belong on Ukraine’s soil, never have, and never will! They do not appreciate independence, and they won’t fight for it either. They will drink vadka, and make Joseph Stalin a Saint of Moscow Patriarchate Russian Orthodox Church. They are the enemies of Freedom, and the parasites that suck off such an idea as freedom, for the sake of letting the Oligarchy pay for all their vadka!

  5. These Russians in East Ukraine do not respect Ukraine, and call Bandera a terrorist instead of a hero of Ukrainian freedom! Anyone who calls Bandera a terrorist and enemy of Freedom should be castrated, and made into slave labor in Ukraine, cleaning Johns and toilets in Prison for the rest of their lives, along with Yanukovich, and the Communist party, and the Oligarchs, and the regional party, for obstructing justice in Ukraine, and stealing from Ukraine’s people! Lord have mercy on them all! Amen.
