Ukraine Update: In the news, Andrew Taylor, 17 03 14

(photo: Donetsk anti-Maidan Rally)
Large Anti-Fascist demonstrations took place yesterday in southern Ukraine ( cities of Odessa and Mikolayiv) and in the eastern cities of Luhansk, Kharkiv, and Donetsk. The MSM characterize these demonstrations as simply "pro-Russian", as if the masses are out protesting in the thousands because they are ethnic-Russian nationalist with their noses out of joint. .

This is a misleading and politically-motivated characterization, in fact, these demonstrations are mass expressions of militant anti- Fascist Coup sentiment among the Ukrainian people! And the demonstrations are "pro-Russian" because no other Power has taken a stand against the Svoboda / Right Sector stranglehold on the interim govt.
