And it looks like exactly that happened again with the police showing up and not confronting the protesters. If the police acted yesterday morning they could have easily ended the movement for good when the protesters were the fewest in number leaving behind the most dedicated and most extreme protesters behind. Hell, even the most extreme of those protesters on Twitter were ready to accept that their movement was about to end. From an armchair general opinion, I am very disappointed that the police didn't act.flamming_python wrote:Ivan the Colorado wrote:Twitter is abuzz with rumors that the police will try to disperse the protesters very soon...
The same rumours were constantly flying on Maidan twitters, very rarely amounting to anything (and when they did - only by co-incidence) - as a means of increasing agitation and anger among the protestors.
In very related news, there has been word the protesters that are left (the most hardcore ones) are organizing themselves in groups now. Groups in Ukraine were formed on the Maidan in the same way. A notable group from there is none other than Right Sector. And just as people slowly rallied around Right Sector a year ago, the protesters numbers are growing again.
Russia literally did the exact same thing for Yanukovich's government and that sure helped a lot didn't it.par far wrote:This is a maidan, hopefully Russi offers asstiance to the Armenian government(provide them with loans or something), if Russia does not act now, then Russia is going to lose Armenia the same way as Russia lost Ukraine.
