    No, you misread my original post. It was, in retrospect, not as clear as I would have liked it to have been.

    EDIT: The largest is Kharkiv and it has 50% russian ethnics in it's population.
    What I said was that there is a significant population of Russians in Ukraine. Not that they were indistinguishable from each other. There's fairly decent sized Russian populations in most of the former USSR, thanks to Stalin's attempt at Russification (He was kind of a Russian chauvinist. (Which is really screwy when you consider that he was Georgian.)

    Those Russians prefer stronger ties to Russia.

    Yeah, that's one way to put it...LOL!

    Another way would be: you jumped the gun.

    Parliament has approved a measure allowing a no-confidence vote to come to the floor, the Speaker has rejected the President's request for a state of emergency, protests are fanning out across the country and the leadership sounds more and more frantic. I think its possible the government will fall and a caretaker cabinet will be installed within a few days or weeks.

    Well the no confidence is not in the bag yet. they may start procedures tomorrow but it's not clear whether they will be able to do the voting tomorrow. If there will be a no confidence vote, and if it does pass, it means that there will be new elections.

    I suspect there will be a fight in the ukrainian parliament tomorrow. There usually is before and after every major vote.
