The Toppling of Viktor Yanukovich: Guest Post at the Kremlin Stooge

I have a lengthy guest post on the last month's overthrow of Yanukovich over at the excellent The Kremlin Stooge blog. Hop on over to read the piece and the lively introduction by the host.


  1. Thanks for the guest post, hoct! It has proven very popular, and as of the moment has drawn 2,950 hits and inspired 489 comments. It's hard to argue with facts, and It is clear Yanukovych was not properly removed from office and remains the legitimate ruler of Ukraine despite having been driven from the country, while the current ruling party is illegitimate and self appointed. So much for the Ukrainian hunger for the rule of law, if they are going to put up with this unelected government.

    1. Thank you for your kind words Mark, but I'm sure many of those hits are actually from visitors who come to check all the tangential debates in the comments section rather than the opening article, just as I often do myself. Much of the credit here really goes to the fantastic commentating section of the Kremlin Stooge.
