East Ukraine Separatists Refuse to Postpone Referendum
The pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine did not heed Russia's President Vladimir Putin advice to postpone the referendum for independence, reports Interfax.
It is supposed to take place this Sunday in the so-called “Donetsk People's Republic” and the neighboring “Luhansk People's Republic” in Eastern Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian authorities said, that notwithstanding the eventual postponement of the referendum, the anti-terrorist operation against the separatists in the region will continue.
At the same time the co-chair of the government of the “Donetsk People's Republic” Miroslav Rodenko said the pro-Russian squads are not planning to lay their weapons and negotiate, because “too many people had died”. He also said he does not see how or why the upcoming elections for president of Ukraine are going to happen in the region. “I don't see among the candidates anyone who could represent Donbas and the south east.”

The majority of Ukrainians believe that the current illegal government in Kiev is useless.
This is from a poll conducted by Voice of America which is really right wing.
The East and South Ukranians should push their own man in the Presidential elections as the current government will not do well in the elections.
Why settle for part of a country when you can have it all.
Since the Kiev right sector is clearly braindead, and have attacked so many Russians in the east it is clearly clear that the only way to solve this mess is to divide the country. However, will be better if they get united to Russia as Crimea since small republics obviously will not survive with the disgusting NATO pigs next door.
If there is a god, I will pray that after May 11 everything will be peaceful for eastern Ukrainians. And I hope the western ones will get out of the poverty that will soon be caused in the west as result of the disgusting US intervention.
