Here is Russian propaganda, which is definitely more accurate than NATO and State Department propaganda:
Anonymous Ukraine Klitschko e-mails and Nuland/Pyatt dialogue prove US-backed coup.
Why? Nuland- and I have heard the audio on this one, definitely picks Arseniy Yatseniuk over more popular Ukraine figures:
Nuland: I think Yats is the guy who's got the economic experience, the governing experience. He's the... what he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside. He needs to be talking to them four times a week, you know. I just think Klitsch going in... he's going to be at that level working for Yatseniuk, it's just not going to work.
Now, our people hate anyone capable of thinking ahead. The Russians have been seriously patient with the crazy games we've been playing, but they've got people in Ukraine. The Crimean Republic is mostly Russian. These are a people who mobilized for the Slavs in WWI for crying out loud. We've played games in Georgia, Syria, most of Eastern Europe- and now Ukraine. See what I did there? The time period? Actually remembering history? Nobody wants us to do that. They want us on drugs, watching TV, incapable of thinking or remember a damn thing.
And they want to pretend Russia is escalating?
We are run by children. Wait, let me scratch that. Children have more sense. A five year old eventually notices that big guy in the corner could hurt him. The five year old stops when the big guy stomps his foot, or slams his fist down on the table, but our morons keep poking. Ron Paul would stand up and talk about blow back with regard to the Muslim terrorists, and then these idiots would shout him down. There will be blow back coming from actual nations, especially if they keep this ridiculous meddling up. Russia is very obviously not happy, and they actually are trying to point that out nicely, via outlets like Russia Today. But our leaders keep pushing the envelope, both with Russia and China. We apparently just have to meddle in small countries that the Russians or Chinese have made serious investments in, while acting like pious little promoters of freedom. How about some freedom right here in America?
Russia isn't escalating. Russia is defending. Ukraine is right next to Russia. There are Russians and Russian assets in Ukraine. It is NATO that is escalating, and Western interests that are invading. And they've already put up with pretty much every color coded revolution meddling with their interests- their cultural sphere.
None of this should stand. Overthrow an elected official and then call it democracy? Endanger a nation's borders and then call defense offense, or at least escalation? Then there is the question of what Ukrainians actually want. I doubt this nonsense about them feeling European. They have a tendency to be nationalistic. I think what they probably want jobs and food that they can afford, but the global politics/protest movements don't feed anyone. This just promises to create more hardship for people, regardless of who wins.
