What the West should know about the Euromaidan’s far right element
Many in the West, are asking questions about the involvement of the Ukrainian ultranationalists in the Euromaidan protests in Kyiv. Some allegedly left-wing web-sites, such as the World Socialist Web Site, publish blatant lies about the Euromaidan protests and the role that the far right is playing in them. These web-sites are trying to appease Russian imperialists who are doing everything they can to deprive Ukraine of its already weakened independence.
At the moment, there are two things that the West should understand about the Ukrainian ultranationalists in the context of Euromaidan…
Misconception #1: Ukraine is divided between east and west.
Misconception #2: Ukrainian protests are about joining the EU
Misconception #3: Protest forces in Ukraine are dominated by the far right.
Misconception #4: The protests should cease immediately and give way to negotiations between the regime and the leaders of opposition political parties.

A Ukrainian Journalist Explains 10 Things The West Needs To Know About The Situation In Kiev
@Euromaidan in English:
Quite a good article explaining the buildup to the current situation for those of you who perhaps haven’t been following since the beginning of the protests, or are just now hearing about it on the mainstream media. Importantly it makes a point of the fact that whilst it started as a small scale demonstration about the stopping of EU agreement signing at the last minute, the driving force behind the people protesting is due to the governments corruption, brutality and oppression – ignited by the initial brutal attack by Berkut forces early in the morning of Dec 1st.
