Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

following the impeachment of Viktor Yanukovych.

Does anybody ever heard anything from that "impeachment"? Or at least that it ever happened?

Viktor Yanukovych - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On 22 February 2014, members of parliament found that the president was unable to fulfill his duties, and they set an election for May 25 to select his replacement.

Whether this is constitutional or not, I don't know. But he certainly is unable to fulfill his duties.

He's about to give a press conference apparently, in an undisclosed location in Russia. Should be fun.

Yanuk's presser | theguardian.com

Yanukovych says any military actions in Crimea are "unacceptable". He says he won't request any military assistance from Russia. "Ukraine needs to be united."

He says he will return to Ukraine when his security and that of his family have been assured.

The ousted president said he arrived in Russia "thanks to the patriotically-minded officers".

He has not met President Putin yet but spoke to him on the phone and they agreed to meet when there is an opportunity.

... but he's a very busy man...
