A creeping anti-constitutional coup takes place in Ukraine today. We know how independent the current president of Ukraine is and his actions, first to ban television channels, and now to ban one of the leading Ukrainian oligarchs, are an indicator of his power. But everything is exactly the opposite. He was ordered to go beyond constitutional norms.
Sweden’s and Ukraine’s Ministries of Defence have agreed on deploying the 12th peace-keeping battalion of the Swedish ground-forces at the village of Karlovka in Poltava Region.
According to the Ukrainian authorities, this will help “combatting Russian aggression” against Donbas and Crimea. The ceremonial reception of the Swedish soldiers will be performed the 23 February, when Ukraine observes the Day of Grief and Shame. In preparations for the ceremony, the flags of the UN, Sweden and the LGBT-movement have already been raised.
