    Good Green Men?

    Some time ago, what place you could go with your family on holiday? Of course, Veche! But few weeks ago Veche was removed because provocations were possible. Veche it’s ancient Russian tradition when crowd decides to do something. Demonstrations in the Kiev downtown were named Veche by politicians, who came on Maidan.

    I come out of the subway near Maidan. Today here must be Veche. Again! But… Oh, my God! I see a few green men! Like Russian conquerors in the Crimea or the separatists in the East of Ukraine. They wear military uniform, weapon and the black masks on faces.

    But it’s ok! It’s good green men. It’s Ukrainians patriots.

    When Maidan was here, our politicians weren’t afraid of provocations. But now they have a power and they don’t need a Veche. Revolution is ended. Civil war begins.

    If you try to be objective, you see a lot of common in the actions of separatists in the east of Ukraine and rebels in the west some time ago. Oh no, I did mistake. Again! Some Ukrainian politicians said this was a peaceful conquer and peaceful attack. Before this speech, I could not imagine that these words can stand next to each other.

    On the war no angels on both sides. Because angels don’t fight.
