1. It's so odd...

It's so odd that all these posts claiming to have the "real" reason behind the Ukraine situation all just happen to leave out the change-of-heart on the EU. You know, when the previous government that was elected on stronger EU ties suddenly turned away from the EU and towards Russia. After Russia threatened to double the cost of gas.

Leading to a crisis where the government had to give a ton of concessions to the opposition. And when the government did not live up to those concessions, the protests started and the government collapsed.

Just so odd that all these people who have the "real reason" just leave that out. Almost like they're trying to tell a particular story, or their sources are.
