A weak and economically fragile country, kneeded by the collapse of the Soviet Union and ruled by an authoritarian political class supported by powerful oligarchs. This is a picture of Ukraine, a divided land actually in the heart of a crisis that could became global.The east part of the country is the closest to the history and russian culture and consequently the one more involved in their economically business. In this area it is already war: shootings on the streets and kidnappings, summary processes and executions, bombings and deaths. According to the last count 500 people are death and almost one hundred had disappeared. One faction is represented by Russian nationalists,Tsarist, communists, nostalgic USSR former and mercenaries. Ukrainian army and “National Guard”, formed mostly by Ukrainian nationalists, neo-fascist, neo-Nazis and member so fright-wing Parliamentary groups, form the other. Ukraine is a country strangled by the giants of the planet.They have firstly tied it into a billion-dollar business of the gas supplies and then imprisoned it in a geopolitical equilibrium too big to be sustained.As a result Ukraine is now collapsing into an ideological war without return.The Donetsk’s and Lugansk’s regions are the strong holds of the separatist movement, self- proclaimed “Federal State of Novorossiya”. In the area shootings happening every day and the new state begin to appear like a military dictatorship, ended up in the hands of the new lords of the war. Sloviansk, that in the past became the symbolic city of the rebels, have been now released by ukraine regular army.The self- defense forces were patrolling the main roads of a block up city and were responding shot by shot to the enemy attacks. No humanitarian corridors are granted and civilian casualties are increasing steadly, such as the displaced persons. Since the begin of the conflict, about 34.600 people managed to escape from the repression of the new republics, from the poverty caused by the last crisis and from the bombs of the Government of Kiev.The capitol of Ukraine became famous as symbol of a popular pro-European movement, anti-russian and liberal, that born in order to get freedom and social equity. However in Donbass, this movement is currently staining himself even with the blood of the innocents that they were suppose to defend.
