* The Russian prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, has criticised western countries' recognition of the legitimacy of Ukraine's transitional government as an "aberration", describing the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovych as a "mutiny". The former president also said that it would be difficult to Russia to work with people with "black masks and Kalashnikov rifles". The Russian foreign ministry later echoed his comments and accused the west of encouraging neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic extremists.

The Russian prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, is also quoted as saying:

We do not understand what is going on there. There is a real threat to our interests and to the lives of our citizens. There are big doubts about the legitimacy of a whole series of organs of power that are now functioning there.

Oh now he is talking "threat to our interests and lives of our citizens"...that's how it all started in Georgia...
