Eastern Ukraine Becomes Republic Of Novorossiya, Declares Independence (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Russian media are reporting a rally in Odessa’s Kulikovo Field where crowds are declaring an “Odessa Republic of Novorossiya.”  “New Russia,” or Novorossiya, is the name given in Czarist times to much of what is now Ukraine, but especially the flatlands just north of Crimea, including Odessa and spilling into the areas in today’s southeastern Ukraine that have been declared the independent “People’s Republics” of Lugansk (Luhansk), Kharkov (Kharkiv), and, most dramatically, Donetsk.
The new republic also apparently recognizes the “independence” of the Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kharkov republics as well as a new entity called the Carpathian Ruthenian People’s Republic.  Carpathian Ruthenia, now called Ukraine’s Transcarpathia (Zakarpattia) oblast, which formed the eastern part of Czechoslovakia between the world wars, is home to a minority of Rusyns (Ruthenians) and was the site of an aborted declaration of independence in 2008 that was presumed by Ukrainian authorities to be the work of Russian provocateurs.

I’m a big fan of separatism because I think its a form of direct democracy.  It also is a direct form of manipulation and many times, especially this day and age, it’s hard to tell the difference.  Russia, like any other country, has a mixed track record.  Chechnya was crushed after years of independence from Moscow.   At the same time they went to war with Georgia so that Abkhazia and South Ossetia could have their independence.  Every country and leader in the world wants freedom for the minorities of the worldbut only when it benefits them to do so.  Nobody, even America, gives two turds about people being free.  So I say if the Russians of Ukraine want to form their own nation, go for it and to hell with Kiev and Moscow both.  FREE NOVOROSSIYA!
