Eastern Ukraine say they will not live under new illegitimate nationalist regime in Kiev. they say: bring back the way things used to be or let us live in our own country, on our ancestor’s land.
War torn Donetsk where Ukrainian army is trying to force new nationalist regime upon the region is unwilling to live under an illegitimate coup installed regime that is being imposed upon them.
Western Ukraine says that the land of Donetsk and Lugansk that Lenin gave them in 1922 belongs to them and they will kill as many people, that are native to that land, as necessary to keep the land.
