6:02 am
center of kiev and i've just seen quite a large for session coming from one end of the square that's behind me all the way to the opposite we are being told that there are several hundred people that's what it looks like who are heading towards the country's parliament the rada it aren't just saying that they in turn have heard rumors that there could be a possible temps to essentially take over as the protesters have been taking over the government buildings and in fact that is the goal of the opposition they want to take full control of all the government buildings and all the government offices in the country's capital what is important to keep in mind however is that until now the focus has been largely on the country's capital whereas in fact the country as of now seems to be rather divided various regions of course in ukraine kerry different allegiances and this what this report is about european union flags burning trash bins get to teenagers and the world revolution passed around like
6:03 am
a football this is kiev but what about other parts of ukraine where people have a different opinion about what's good for the country and what isn't. how many revolutions did we have in ukraine seven. bring us. we gathered people and students and used them so unpleasant i don't even want to talk about it right now the opposition is trying to sell the drive for e.u. integration as the choice of all but recent polls show that there's an equal split between the pro european west of the country and the east and south which are historically much more pro russian if people want to live like they do in europe they must work like they do in europe they should not be to school and work for the sake of being out on the street. to be in the e.u. we must meet certain criteria and that the moment we are simply not up to par to the european standards in the way we produce things. so far do you claim your

leadership has shown no sign of giving in quite the opposite the president the parliament and the cabinet remain firmly in place so perhaps the forecast of an impending doom could be premature it is r t t of. a mention the demands of the demonstrators in care are not exactly shared by people in these two the country thousands have taken to the streets that savoy support for the authorities and their decision to suspend the trade deal with the e.u. recent polls show the country is sharply divided on the shirt was more than seventy percent of those living in the west of ukraine favoring the deal with the european union while those same pro e.u. moves action by less than thirty percent in the east so many come pad the current events in ukraine to the mass parsers that almost a decade ago that ended in the so-called orange revolution but john locke and director of studies at the institute of democracy and corporation in paris says
6:05 am
that despite similar signals the same outcome is unlikely. the rumors of a coup are to be taken with some seriousness but i would be surprised if the events of two thousand and four the orange revolution could be repeated i think it would be difficult for the pro western forces in ukraine to pull off the same trick twice some seen a e.u. politicians rushed to kiev as when to express their support for the opposition and let's now have a listen together that what's been said in independence square that. used to do you are born to europe and we will support huge over the years the european union needs you and you need the european union and if you needed you would be able to go around i so see your take on this deal saying such interference in the country's internal affairs is justified that absolutely not
6:06 am
it's absolutely disgraceful for european politicians to travel this way as they did ten years ago when members of the european parliament and other people from the e.u. including of course particularly polish representatives played a very important role in disrupting the electoral process back at the time of the orange revolution it's very important to emphasize the role of poles specifically in this process with ukraine poland has always regarded ukraine as its backyard it has i would say neo imperialist designs on ukraine it wants ukraine to come into its orbit into the european orbit but mainly into its orbit so there's no incompatibilities between kaczynski has professed euro skepticism and his deep desire to effect this radical geopolitical change. but the government and their position agree violent riots were deliberately instigated but they differ on who's
6:07 am
been behind them and this is the footage from the brutal storm of kiev city council at p. days ago the building was later proclaimed the headquarters of the revolution and a prominent foreign affairs analyst dr subject trip coverage says there so it has had nothing to gain from such tactics we need the question. who gains and it is obvious that the government has nothing to gain by escalating violence the government is actually hoping that it will gradually die down the only people who have a vested interest in provoking violence are the protesters themselves or to put it more precisely those who are behind the organized aspect of the protests because it would work wonders both in the western media and in the enter your new code which segment of the ukrainian population who have the marches of the
6:08 am
so-called peaceful protests who are being suddenly be savaged by the police no that scenario simply does not sound convincing in my opinion the violence this being instigated is perhaps by the fringe elements of the protesters but certainly not by the government because they have nothing to gain. and of course we'll bring you more on dave's from ukraine after but opinion on this situation there throughout the day plans you can always keep an eye on developments there by logging on to our website r.t. dot com where you will also find the most striking videos and photos from the project. the acid ballet drama at the bolshoi has reached its conclusion a russian court has found a leading ballet soloist and his two accomplices guilty of the outside on the
