When German troops entered the Ukraine in June, 1941, they were greeted by millions of Ukranians who hated Russia. That was then, now is now. Today, the nation of the Ukraine is divided into an eastern part where people speak Russian and a western part where people speak Ukranian. President Viktor Yanukovych is from the eastern area of the nation and he has pushed for a new law which makes Russian equal to Ukranian. This would be equivalent to making Spanish equal to English in America.
There will be a new election for parliament and Viktor will push the language button to arouse anger and hate in eastern Ukraine. He already has sent to jail the previous president of the nation on charges that she signed the wrong bill. Viktor is pushing the Ukraine into a close alliance with Russia.
When Viktor gets his goal then Viktor and Vladimir can rule without worrying about oppositions.
