Viktor Yanukovych, the president of Ukraine, is leaning towards signing to closer European ties which gets thus closer to Russia.
Ukraine has a close bond with Russia who gives them gasoline. The people of Ukraine don’t want closer ties with Russia. They fear that soon they will be swallowed up by the country and not be considered European anymore.
Because the president wishes to sign the EU, People have begun to protest. Sadly when they protested the government fought against them this angering the people more.
This is only my opinion, but if Ukraine is going to have protest, the government needs to listen to it’s people!! Never should one force another down for it only makes them angry. As for me, my opinion on whether to sign the EU I am undecided. Ukraine should figure this one out on their own. Other countries need not to disturb their quarrel. Things like this always get resolved in the end.
