Towards an autonomous E Ukraine — Lugansk Province Soviet declares Kiev government illegitimate

See my previous post. Here’s a tidbit from gazeta.ru. The Lugansk Province (oblast) soviet has refused to recognize the legitimacy of the new government in Kiev, declaring that “the restoration of the Constitution of 2004 by the Rada is illegal.” Lugansk is in far east Ukraine, very close to the frontier with the Russian Federation. Put this together with the admiral’s defection and I think we are looking at a full-scale partition of Ukraine.
