Today's main news - 2 nights ago a plane took off from Borispol, Ukraine to an unidentified location in the United States, with all of the Ukraine's gold reserves on board.
It's reported on even by Ukrainian pro-Maidan news sites: http://ura-inform.com/ru/society/2014/03/07/iz-aeroporta-borispol-etoj-nochju-vyletel-tainstvennyj-samolet
Airport employees first broke the story and an ex-employee of the finance ministry backed it up. Still, could turn out to be false
Yatsenyuk meanwhile is on his way to the US too, for instructions.
Other news - there was a pro-Russian rally in Zaporozhie today. A respectable amount of people; a few thousand. Not a huge amount of course, but finally some activity has been registered there there since the 1st of March. The "March of polite Zaporozhans" as it's called
They broke into the regional administration building and hung a Russian flag on top. Police at first tried to resist but then gave up.
In Lugansk there was a similar rally, with a similar number of people, that also took their regional admin building and raised the Russian flag on it
Apparently they forced their governor to abdicate, and are calling for a referendum on joining Russia
News from Donetsk - they had another meeting today, in support of their abducted people's governor. Good news is that there were more people than yesterday; about 10,000. Don't know if they undertook any actions or not. It seems not.
Rallies have also taken place in other towns of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions; at least one has forced the abdication of their mayor.
Lastly, an interview with a Ukrainian Colonel-General who has arrived in Simferopol, Crimea from Kiev. He's come to ask the separatist forces (and ostensibly Russian forces) for assistance.
Colonel-General (or 3-star general) is the 3rd highest rank in a Soviet/Russian/Ukrainian/etc.. military hierarchy; beneath only Generals of the Army/Admirals of the Fleet (Chiefs of Staff, heads of service branches, Defense ministers) and the president himself.
Earlier on, several Ukrainian generals were fired over their opposition to Yatsenyuk conferring on Pravyj Sektor militants and formations an official military status.
Seems there is wide discontent amongst the Ukrainian officer corps over this decision.
As such an officer in such a rank would be either the head of a smaller service branch/sub-branch or the vice-commander of a service branch.
It seems this chap in particular is the representative of the Zaporozhie Cossack forces in Kiev (General Staff?).
