The conflict in Ukraine illustrates how the real issue is the sheer corruption within government. The police are corrupt and are willing to kill their own citizens to preserve their privileged status. The President Viktor Yanukovych is effectively really Russian and cannot even speak proper Ukrainian. We may see this nation torn apart as civil war may erupt between the West and the East. Expect economic sanctions to emerge both from the EU and the United States. As I have explained, Kiev was the first capitol of Russia before Moscow. There is a tremendous symbolic gesture at stake here for Russia as a whole. Instead of the Balkans being the flash point for World War I, pay attention to Ukraine for it is the first step to reestablish the Soviet Union.
