The Ukraine article was interesting, but perhaps a little blythe about the situation. According to someone I met who lives there, police have been raiding hospitals and beating up the doctors and nurses for helping people they had beaten up badly enough to go to the hospital. And I'm not sure what they'll do if Putin follows through in cutting off their energy supplies.

It was definitely an optimistic take on things, especially since events are still underway.

If you hear anything else, please pass it along.

Starting post, from December 1 or 2: http://hecate.in.ua/2013/12/6720/ (mostly in English, with pix/vid). This is written/translated by someone I met earlier this year, fwiw.
