Over 100,000 people were in the streets of Kiev in the Ukraine. They were chanting against the decision by their government to forsake an opportunity to enter the European Union and opt for life under the benign rule of Vladimir Putin. The protesters were furious at the decision by Viktor Yanukovych to crumble under the threats of Putin and turn his back to the European Union and its offer of working in a modern economy that would offer citizens of the Ukraine opportunities to work in many nations. The EU offers work opportunities in the western world rather than a future in which high paying jobs would not be available. The Putin economy is centered on oil and gas work, the European Union is a modern society in which nations focus on work centered in high tech.
It is not surprising that over thousands were chanting “we want Europe, we want freedom.” There is a possibility that revolution may soon arrive in the Ukraine.
