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

No, there have been some rumours of developements in Lviv (no other confirmation by the way, nor stories in ENglish... and I thought the other story was related. It appears in Billmon's twitter feed with the proper date in the text so no confusion there.

It really seems that the crazies are running the show now.

Putin's latest move, asking for the referendum date to be pushed back, is apparently being met with anger in the East.  

And, if you have Right Sector, or affiliated groups, acting up in the West....  Remember that Avakov had been the subject of death threats... then this is an even graver mess than it was.

But wait, I thought the crazies were operating on Putin's orders?

It's as if the media has been lying to me.

Putin knows the crazies are in charge, so all he has to do is say that Ukraine should hold elections as planned and let Kiev botch it.

When the state fails and you have excitable people running aroung with Kalashnikovs, the non-crazies keep a low profile.
