I suspect what's happening in the Ukraine is crafted by Russian/Ukraine intelligence services as part of a larger strategic plan by Moscow (Ukraine is a key East vs. West linchpin). While the vast majority involved believe in what they are doing, the opposition is likely controlled, or at least intentionally left uncontrolled, to shape the story the world is being told. (Note, for example, the ease with which protesters have had in occupying government buildings throughout the country.) Ultimately I believe the Ukraine crisis will feed into the well-planned (by the Kremlin) outbreak of World War Three.

Where will this all end?
The Kremlin has had a plan all along (written by Alexander Yanov in 1978!)
