Ukraine protest leaders warned: 'Sign deal or you will all die'

It was only two days ago when the Polish foreign minister Radoslaw Sikorski was filmed telling opposition leaders that if they did not support a deal with the Ukranian government it would impose martial law and send in the army


Asked later to confirm his statement, Mr Sikorski told ITV that the threat of martial law had been real.
"To my knowledge interior ministry troops were being readied," he said according to the news channel.
The astonishing warning will disturb an international community which has been pressing hard for a deal to bring an end to the violence which left over 70 protesters dead amid sniper attacks on Thursday.

So in the short time-span of less than 48 hours, Viktor Yanukovych in total control, and was about to destroy the oppositions, was forced to flee to the safety of east Ukraine.....

Did Putin kicked the stool under him?

readers will recall Putin did abandoned Iraq's Saddam Hussein and Libya's Col. Gaddafi when they both needed the Russian president's military support at the most critical.

Is Vladimir Putin really the untrustworthy gutless chicken, as many in the West picture him?
