What's  happening in Ukraine is very worrying. Perhaps our Ukrainian friends or people with insider info or with links to the country can give us more insight. 

Update: This article http://www.businessinsider.com/understanding-euromaidan-2014-1 appears to be a good summary of some of the key reasons why people are protesting and rioting in Ukraine. There is a lot of misinformation and speculation around, important to get the feeling of people on the ground there. 

This article was submitted to Business Insider by Taras Ilkiv, who felt that outsiders needed to understand these 10 things to comprehend the situation in Kiev. Ilkiv is the Editor-In-Chief of Newsradio.com.ua, the website for Voice of Capital radio, and formerly an editor at Korrespondent.net. He is from Ivano-Frankivsk in Western Ukraine, and has lived in Kiev for the past seven years

The lack of public alarm at government internet surveillance is frightening, but perhaps it's because the problem is difficult to convey in everyday terms
