We just published a round-up discussion of the major developments in the situation in Ukraine, which can be viwed here.

Since that publication, there have been some relevant updates, which we print below.

First is a Senior German Politician, openly criticizing the EU approach to Ukraine, recognizing their rights to independence and sovereignty.

Clearly echoing LaRouche's comments, that "...I'm looking to expect that Germany, together with Switzerland, together with Austria, and together with other parts of Eastern Europe, are going to come together," there is now movement in Switzerland.

And finally, it has just been announced that the no-confidence motion against the Ukraine government failed today.

Kyiv Post reports that a no-confidence motion against the Ukraine government failed today when it gained only 186 of 226 required (a simple majority) votes. Only one member of the ruling Party of Regions crossed over to vote for the motion. The paper says that 411 MP's were present. No further no-confidence motions may be introduced until Feb., 2014.
