Why I won't take a side in the Ukraine battle

I admit to knowing very little about most things, I accept gut reactions, filtered news, who controls the media but over the years I've tried to at least read the spin on both sides. So with that in mind, I've spent last night and this morning attempting to understand the battle in the Ukraine and the nationalistic rightwing influence within the protest movement concerns me. BBC has a few good articles explaining a timeline for the protest movement.

They had excellent coverage on Kiev, Venezuela, and Mexico today.

Hope that helps.
