Since November pro-European, mostly ethnic/cultural Ukrainians, have been protesting against the pro-Russian government's (Party of Regions) decision to reject further integration with the European Union and reductions in civil liberties. Recently these protests have intensified and spread to the point of occupations of local government administrations. Several Twitter posts have placed maps showing where pro-European local governments exists/pro-European protesters are occupying local administrations.
|@Ukroblogger has a map showing where protesters have occupied local administrations (the fist), where it is in progress (people), and where the police have forced protesters out (blue)|
|@Odessablogger has a map showed the status of oblasts. I wonder how mass some of the "mass protests" are because the Crimea is overwhelmingly Russian.|
|@jc_stubbs hosts a map showing mostly the same story but probably more accurate than the above second map. "People" probably means local anti-Party of Regions government control.|
