Forward thinking people of the Ukraine are protesting their government's decision to delay a trade pact with the European Union. From Kiev to Lviv, Luhansk and other cities of the Ukraine, Ukrainians are protesting their government's puppetism to Russia. Progressives in the beautiful cities of the former Russian republic are saying "no" to the government's decision to delay a trade pact with the EU which was expected to be signed at a summit next week.
The trade pact with the EU would fasten the Ukraine's ties to Europe thus according Ukrainians a faster rate to development.
But Russia, which has continued to meddle in Ukrainian affairs, wants its former foot-stool to joint the Moscow led Customs Union, which has two other former Soviet republics as members, instead of joining the EU trade pact.
Ukrainians also would like to see the release from jail of Orange Revolution leader Timoshenko, who sought to eradicate Moscow's grip on the Ukraine.
Russia has a gas- grip on the Ukraine and Moscow owned pipelines that traverse the Ukraine supply Europe with much of its gas and Russian has from time to time wielded its gas-trump as it did in 2009, shutting down the pipelines causing gas shortages throughout Europe.
So, stand up you Progressive Ukrainians, you are the government, you decide: Russia or the EU? The choice is yours and yours alone, you decide your fate Ukraine. Godspeed!
