Ukrainian Opposition Urges West to Impose Sanctions on Govt
Ukrainian opposition leaders have called for the West to give more support to help solve his country's political crisis.
As they arrived in Munich for the annual Security Conference, their message was that Europe and the US should go beyond vocal declarations of support for anti-government protesters in Ukraine – with measures that include sanctions.
“Sanctions are the perfect tool to convince the government to stick to the standards of democracy, not dictatorship,” said the Fatherland Party leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk, according to Euronews.
US Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to meet Yatsenyuk and other Ukrainian opposition leaders on Saturday.
Before arriving in Munich, Kerry said the concessions offered by Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich are not enough to resolve the crisis in the country.

The bottom line here is that Democracy is not always the fastest and shortest way to prosperity. Greece is the country which invented democracy and you all know the present reality. India is the largest democracy and has two and a half times SMALLER economy than China even though they had the same starting point. The West you are mentioning started the "democracy" infection and controversy for which millions of people are suffering. And then they complain that many immigrants are coming to their countries...
So I say pass them the baton of violent demonstrations and let them trash their own countries. (So you can enjoy the show for a while)
No Ahmed you ignorant immature, illiterate piece of shit you obviously don't get the point again.
What I want is the French or the British to go on destructive demonstrations and thash their countries for a change! Let them fight and correct their far from perfect democracies. I don't want this happening in the Slavic world!
My ethnic Turkish brother George is right when he suggests Bulgaria and Ukraine should return to totalitarian communism which he holds so dear to his heart. I know it is a dream that George has held ever since the Berlin Wall came down and he moved back to Anatolia.
Destroying your country and bringing it back to the Stone Age for an elusive dream of “democracy” is nothing short of self-destruction. The way things are going if those demonstrations and destruction continue Ukraine wouldn’t be able to recover for many decades. Just look at the Bulgarian “democracy” of 23 years and image what’s coming.
Keep your heads on your shoulders and don’t let negative emotions and external friction polarization take control over you! Steady transition and balance are always the right approach. Look t the Chinese for example.. soon to be the largest economy in the world! Steady wins the race…..
Real Democracy is a complex and a multifaceted structure requiring a fine balance and huge amount of responsibility in order to be achieved!
“Democracy is a form of government that substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.”
George Bernard Shaw
(I do agree)
