FanShot

Ukraine

59

Obviously, the only reason for me or anyone to post a fanshot like this is because Vitali Klitschko is in the middle of this mess, and he's been a fairly prominent front-line figure. Interestingly, and perhaps not surprisingly, some Western observers are not all that optimistic about how well Klitschko would fare if he were elected to a lead position of political power. Now, a "truce of sorts has been announced ahead of talks between Yanukovych and the opposition. So, here is a very in-depth summary from "The Monkey Cage" (part of The Washington Post, with embedded links to previous stories) summarizing just what this chaos is all about. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/monkey-cage/wp/2014/02/18/what-you-need-to-know-about-ukraine/
