Ukraine's acting president, Oleksandr Turchynov, has dismissed the head of the armed forces general staff Admiral Yuriy Ilyin.  


This may end up being his biggest mistake ? He does not have a (riot) police and now not even Army. They said they want to stay neutral even under Yanukovych (he also sacked one head of armed force ( probably for not being willing to help him)...Who is the one that Turchynov is now relaying on for security? Can I guess? Sahka?

Yanukovych sacked the previous head of the Army because he had publicly declared that troops should not be used to fire on citizens.

Turchynov sacked the next one for the rather obvious reason that he could be presumed to be loyal to Yanukovych (and willing to fire on citizens). I don't see why that means he no longer has an army.

We will see...usually the Army officials are divided between few highest rank officers.
We will see if next one will not fire on citizens of Crieme if he asks him?
