Western Leadership Urges Restraint In Ukraine
Vice President Joe Biden called Ukrainian President Yanukovych to urge him to start talking with opposition leaders and avoid escalating violence. So far, violence seems to have decreased, maybe as a result of this pressure from world leaders. Still, protesters are not deterred by the freezing weather in Kiev.

Well its interesting and as a westerner I think we can be hopeful. Still, gotta go with whats best for the people. I don't know, the EU may offer more in the long run but Russia's compelling in the short run.
@curtis for sure. i guess it's a question of a quick fix versus long-term goals. the fact that this movement has had considerable traction is pretty interesting regardless the outcome
Yes, in the long term hopefully neither the US nor Russia will be so concerned about spheres of influence (not that the US is especially involved in this)
