The Ukrainian government is ready to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union in the very near future, acting Foreign Minister Andrey Deshchitsa said after a meeting with top diplomats of the Visegrad Group, an alliance of four Central European states focused on European integration, comprising the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.

Deshchitsa said that among Kiev's top priorities in foreign relations would be the completion of the plan on visa linearization with the EU and the resumption of a full dialogue with Russia, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry's press service said.  

Huh.How the hell he knows WHO IS GOING TO WIN next election? They lost last election and who is quarantining that not another pro Russian president and government will not be in power after next election.That's why we have elections I suppose to find out whos the one people want in power.Arrogance of these guys is unbelievable...

Well, many members of the Regions party went over to the opposition -- that's how they got a majority in parliament, it wasn't a putsch. They may or may not get re-elected : that's democracy.

Do you still believe that those members of the Regions party WILLINGLY ( free will) crossed the floor? And not only ousted Yanukovych but voted to Russian language to be ousted from Ukraine? Do you understand that members of this party are with big majority from those pro Russian regions? Can you get it?
You people are incredible...it's like you are blind or hypnotized and you are just repeating mantra that you have heard on your media."Unarmed protesters" when we all see that they were armed and as it seems they started bloodshed because POLICE was unarmed at the beginning ( I was shocked to hear that they did not give weapon to police). You call this government democratic and government legal when they are "elected" buy few on Maidan squer ( and even they were booing some of them ) etc.You deny use of force on side of Nazi parties on Maidan...Ah...it is useless...
Give me ONE good reason WHY they would in their free will vote against Russian language (forget Yanukovych)?

You are talking to people who are nothing like you say, and you keep on shouting at us. Shut up for five minutes.

I love you guys :) and that's why I am shouting...I want you to think and to stop being so cold-war subjective when it comes to world politic. I leave in western sphere country too ( I even consider Australia as USA colony or one of USA (hidden) states). I love Australia and that's why I will not shut up when I see something wrong in and about this country.I want this country ( and west) to behave decently and lawfully in guarding our interest in the world. If we do not behave decently how we can expect anybody else with interests that compete ours to behave decently. It would be a dabble standard...never good.

First the opposition armed forces gained control over the parliament and other government buildings, sending the executive government fleeing, then enough parliamentarias crossed the floor. That is a putsch/coup/revolution followed by gaining legitimacy from the parliament. Which follows the basic procedure for a succesfull violent take-over, first you shoot the executive and then have the legislative and/or judicial bodies appoint you new executive. With armed guards around to make sure everyone knows how to vote.

Of course, they failed in killing the executive, which means that there are two presidents around.
