Below is a facebook post from another missionary living in Kiev who has been a close observer of these events as they unfold. This person writes:
"Over just a few hours, things have become very intense in Kiev. This morning fighting broke out between the riot police and the protesters. It got very ugly. Ten people are confirmed dead. That was only today. As I write this, I'm watching fires burning around Maidan Square where many people have gathered. Police are blocking roadways, trains and all major entrances into Kiev. It has been reported that the party of regions (President Yanokovyche’s political party) wants to clear protesters out tonight by force."
This person goes on to write that many political leaders have called upon Ukrainian President Yanokovyche to end the violence, including President Obama. We know that a principal of anarchy is to create a crisis so that a despotic system can rush in to "calm the waters," and then stay in control. If this doesn't end Russian troops will arrive; a planned strategy.
Arnold Roberts and I interviewed Rev. Patrick Whaley of SASHA Ministries. Pat is currently in Ukraine. Although we lost him half way through you can still listen to this interview / Link above.
