The protest in Kiev began 21.11.2013 when the President of Ukraine has stopped the process of association with EU. The main force of street protests was ultra-nationalistic organizations. Step by step these organizations absorbed the energy of protest, their actions became more and more aggressive, the weapon appeared in Maidan. Finally, the little street war began in Kiev.
In video: The new-year march of the nationalistic "Svoboda" Party in Kiev. At the date of video the Maidan gains the strength and growths.
After the video. In the February the self-defense of Maidan was about 12000 participants. After the crash of the legal power in Kiev at the night 21.02. - 22.02 the new "government" was formed. The several positions were taken by "Svoboda" Party. The people who are famous for their nationalistic (and Russophobian) speeches hold many positions. In 23.02 the law on regional languages was repealed (this law granted a little rights to the Russian, the Romanian and others languages). The nationalistic armed groups got, in fact, the status of official forces and now (07.03) they participate in the suppression of Russian riot in the Eastern Ukraine. Several groups turned into the crime bands frightening the civilians.
My remark: It seems to me, we can watch the rebirth of Nazi state. In 1930-th it started from the similar marches for the nation and against (ethnic, political) "oppressors". Russians remember ethnic purges in 1940-th (it is strange why Poland - about 40,000 Polish victims - and Israel - the Jewish population of the Western Ukraine has been completely destroyed in WW2 - simulate the amnesia). Russians know who are enemies of "Svoboda" participants. It is one of causes of the powerful reaction of Russians in Ukraine (and in Russia) on the takeover in Kiev.
- Kiev - capital of Ukraine.
- Euromaidan, Maidan - 1. the generalized name of events that led to destroy the legal power in Ukraine; 2. Maidan_of_Independence - the central square in Kiev.
- "Svoboda" [Freedom] - the legal nationalistic party (10% on the last election, 2012). Yes, it is possible in Ukraine.
- Tyahnybok - Oleg Tyahnybok, the leader of "Svoboda".
- Bandera, Shukhevich - leaders of Ukrainian nationalists in WW2 that were allies of Nazi Germany. They are responsible for thousands of civilian victims: Polish, Jewish, Belorussians, Russians, Ukrainian.
"Ukraine above all" - the analog of "Deutschland über alles", the Nazi slogan from WW2.
