No-no-no. Kiev is Central Ukraine. "Western part of Ukraine has supported the Germans and now the West since WW2" is western regions of Ukraine that were a part of Poland before WW2, and were...
There is a tiny Edit button just above the city name.
Affinities are ideologies, so they are supposed to be rigid. The better analogy for social engineering is virtues.
You can change your dominant affinity. More than that, you can have bonuses,...
I'm finishing a Purity victory on Hard now. My first impression is that it's not a bad game and it certainly has potential, but it will need several major patches to get there. As it is now the tech...

1.5h in. It's hard to get used to the new voice actors for Zoe and Kian, but I guess I'm starting to. Still they feel as a somewhat different characters (on the other hand they actually are different...

As people joke in Kiev "If you can't find a sock, call your friend in Moscow. He knows what happens here better than you."
Being in Kiev all this time, reading news, watching live streams and...

Tell that to Yanukovych :)
Yes, I sure do. That's why I mentioned the hatemongering as the first point.

For me it looks like you're taking too much upon yourself. It's not like USA and EU drove a hate-mongering campaign in Ukraine, annexed part of its territory, encouraged armed separatism and so on....

I'm with you, although a bit late.
Speaking of mood in general people are still really enthusiastic about the war effort, but critical of the government and of the military leadership especially....

None. While Russia supports separatists and self-determination in other countries it's not so keen about it on their own turf. (RF actually passed a law for stricter criminal responsibility for...

A few points on the current crisis:
- It's mostly limited to the so-called Donbass area which includes two regions: Donetsk and Lugansk. The rest of the country is calm enough with the exception of...

On the question of self-determination:
Mejlis (an unofficial executive body of Crimean Tatars) made a plea two days ago to the Ukrainian government to guarantee (with a help of international...

The major one is the repealing of the Regional Languages Law, which primarily allows regional authorities to declare a minority language as semi-official and guarantees some other preferences to...

Do you have any reliable source for this? Quick search shows that there is a proposed law (#4116 on Feb 07, before the Interim government) to introduce a criminal responsibility for not informing...

Yes, it's very large. I just specified it with more actual data, not tried to play it down.
Yeah, because a referendum done in two weeks in a territory occupied with armed forces, with blocked...

96% after counting 75% of votes. With voter turnout ~83%. So it's ~80% in favour of joining Russia.
I hope that "Democracy in action" was an irony, considering the circumstances.

It's not that simple. Majority of news sites and blogs partially or fully support the mainstream Russian media. So it's easy to live in an informational bauble created by the government and disregard...

burningpet, thanks for the links and summaries (I don't read hebrew).
And thanks for the overall discussion, it gave me more insight into the state of Jewish Community in Ukraine.
Yeah, a good...

I already brought a link to his statement where Moshe Reuven Asman criticizes "some foreign editions of my name or me doing unreliable and sometimes downright false and openly provocative statements...

Why do you think that it's the same fund-raiser?
The one that I quoted is organized by Kiev Jewish Community lead by Rabbi Moshe Reuven Asman not Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich. Rabbi Moshe Reuven Asman...

Not entirely true. The buildings were taken on Marth 22 when Yanukovich and many high-ranked officials already fled the city.
Yes, there were a demand for Yanukovich to resign, but actually it was...

No, it's not perfectly safe and without problems for everybody considering the situation. And there are some measure of anti-Semitism in Ukraine, so Jews may reasonably feel more uneasy. But it's far...
06-03-2014, 05:38 PM
Nope. I would say that this was disproved by Moshe Reuven Asman himself on the official site of Kiev Jewish community: ...
