Putin is a small-sized schizophreniac who went insane and whose attempts to revive the Russian Empire to the 1913 borders can bring world to disaster. Yanukovych is a war prisoner in an unfriendly country, who can be used as a puppet, be brought to Sevastopol or Donetsk.
— Igor Kolomoisky, Governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine
Russia would never make war with us! All Ukrainian media lie for Western money. We here want a referendum, we want Ukraine to be a federation. We don’t accept these bandits that took over Kyiv now, we want to elect our governors.
— Svitlana Zakharchenko, citizen of Kharkiv, Ukraine
Oh my God, they are totally brainwashed! You know this is not true, right? That protest was organized by Russians, I have seen the buses myself.
— Valentyna Shavaltas, animal rights activist from Kharkiv
