The so called separatists took action against others deciding instead of them. And that takes courage!
The so called separatists want to be annexed by Russia, if you were not aware of that already.
Annexed? Scary word. They feel connected to Russia and that is their right. Same as your right to be feel more connected to the west if you care to chose. But when someone that not represent you decides for you to change the language of your children, or their nationality and deprive them of the basic human rights then you either take action or bow to the new master.< Not my post,chippey.
"In 1922, most of the former region of Novorossiya was added to the newly formed Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic within the Soviet Union, as part of the then-prevailing policy of Korenization or "putting down roots," in which territories of the Soviet Union were allocated based upon the ethnic composition of those territories. Because this area historically had a majority Ukrainian population, the Soviets allocated it to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic under this policy, which emphasized building up the nations of the new Soviet Union.
After Joseph Stalin came to power in the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, he reversed the policy of Korenization. The former territory of Novorossiya, which was now the southeastern part of Ukraine, was a prime target of Stalin's reforms, and suffered significant population loss during the Holodomor (artificial famine) of 1932-33 and the Great Purge of 1937-38."
and so it still goes on, and on,,, [link to en.wikipedia.org
I can prove to you that not everything in wikipedia is truthful. Ask any serious conspiracy theorist and revisionist historians and they will confirm that wikipedia better call it jewpedia, has so much manipulated staff. Manipulated the way PTTB needed.
