My wife just came in and told me that there was a pro-Yanukovych rally at the Arsenalna Metro station close to Marinsky Palace and the Verhkovna Rada. When she passed by the first time, there were about 50 people. Coming back, she noticed that the crowd was then about 100. She said someone had a megaphone and was yelling, "We need to come here and we need to show that we are real people who chose Yanukovych. We need to protect our choice." The people who were protesting there were carrying flags of Yanukovych and other flags that were red with the face of Jesus on them. She didn't know what that meant. Maybe they are making a point about their own suffering by analogy?
My wife said to me, "What it really looks like is the bouncing around of a chicken whose head has been cut off."
Maybe Yanukovych can take heart with such protests as these.
