Regardless of how you feel about the protests, there were free, fair, credible, and widely recognized elections after those events.
When did I mention protests? When did I mention elections? Both of those seemed quite fine to me.
At... what? Please cite 1 factual error in my post or misinformed opinion along with some kind of fact to support your claims.
The current government of Ukraine is 100% legit by any standard.
Did you read anything I wrote at all? If the Constitution specifically states the 4 methods a President can be removed from office, but Parliament uses a 5th method they created the day they voted to remove the President, and it was not one of the 4 processes, how is that "100% legit by any standard"? Their impeachment process is very similar to ours and requires, just like ours, TWO votes. 1 to bring charges, 1 to convict.
So then you're claiming one of 5 things: The Ukranian Constitution lists a single vote by Parliament as a "100% legitimate method of removing the President"; Yanukovych is incapacitated (which he vehemently denies); Yanukovych resigned (which he vehemently denies); Yanukovych is dead (which he vehemently denies); or Yanukovych was both impeached AND convicted.
Russia engages in misdirection
Good for them. Everybody does. That doesn't put a 2nd vote on record to convict. Nor does it modify the Constitution. Nor does it make Russians think the same way as Americans. Nor does it alleviate any of the existing tensions between NATO and Russia.
which you follow quite a ways here
And again I'll ask that you cite a factual error in my post, or a misinformed opinion along with a fact to support your claim...
