Absolutely agree. It is extremely important issues - much more important than events that happens in remote corners of the World. The scale of protests and brutality of the police are on too high levels to ignore it.I must admit to finding these updates far more interesting than anything which is happening in the middle east or HK, primarily because it is happening in a democratic country on mainland europe. It certainly isn`t on the scale of the others but fascinating none the less. It could be because I`ve just re-read Orwells 'Homage to Catalonia' which gave an idea how quickly something can get out of hand.
Remarkably European and EU leaders in facts keep silence about the events. Do police use excessive force or not? No comments. As for the protests in Moscow then reaction was more quick.
It's politics - nothing personal.
