Ukraine’s Ruling Coalition Collapses

Yeah, it's been going down in Ukraine...or hitting the fan...depends on how you look at it. NY Times gives us a nice sum up:

The Ukrainian president is accusing Russia of trying to destabilize his country by encouraging separatists on the volatile Crimean peninsula. Viktor Yushchenko told The Associated Press that Russia would not get away with another invasion [referencing the Russian-Georgian conflict, obviously]. Yushchenko also said the collapse of his pro-Western coalition was not a threat to the country's democracy [keep plugging away for NATO membership, Vik, keep plugging away].
