Instead of writing a long post, I'll post this video. Sanctions, protesters being attacked (Pro European), militants acting crazy. The US and EU have just sanctions and froze 20 more officials. The Rebels are still holding Security monitors and Republicans want higher sanctions.

Of bigger concern though, are the accusations that blackwater is fueling the unrest, under payment from the US. Despite what non-russian officials say. Ukraine has requested peace keepers from the UN, but Russia denied them.Is there any reasonable arguments left for defending them? Their strategy has been to keep throwing blame on the west, even though we have no formal role in the conflict besides sanctions.

By the way, Ukraine established a new pipeline to Slovakia, so Russia can no longer shut it down, Its funny, because Russia's reasoning for doing so wasn't just in the first place. Ukraine has full control over the situation as far as oil goes. All of Russia's oil flows through Ukraine, so all it will take to strangle the economy is shutting it down, but that could backfire with both Russia and Europe.

It does create a lot more risk though for further Russian shenanigans.
