Big Weekend in Ukraine

Wow, over the weekend President Viktor Yanukovych was impeached, an interim government put in place. And now a warrant had been issued for his arrest. He and his top aids have apparently fled the country.

I'm not sure about the charge of murdering peaceful protesters. It would seem the regime change, exile and new government was what was wanted. It seems there was a lot of violence and the last days of the regime. But maybe that will prevent him from attempting to return from his exile.

Anyway its good this has so far been resolved without civil war, civil wars suck. Just as the Syrians.
