Yatsenyuk offers “broad autonomy” to East Ukraine

Posted by seumasach on March 24, 2014

As reported in the New York Times

“The acting government in Kiev has also been slow to reach out to Russian speakers and specifically to the East. The interim prime minister, Arseniy P. Yatsenyuk, did give a speech in Russian last week offering broad autonomy to Ukraine’s eastern regions, which are vital to the country’s weak economy, even with rundown coal mines and outmoded factories.”

This seems to confirm that the Kerry-Lavrov plan for a federalized Ukraine. It will not go down well with the Right sector. The dual power situation in Kiev remains to be resolved.
