So, guys, what's new on the Ukrainian front? To me it increasingly seems like Victor Yanukowitsch is about to become another Bashar al-Assad: while all sorts of Hillary Clintons, Lithuanian Presidents and cheap EU/US propaganda outlets go on presenting him as someone "whose days in power are numbered", he keeps kicking the butts of those pro-US/EU losers on the Maidan the same way as Bashar is doing it in Haleb or al-Qussair :_)).
