Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Donetsk Violence Shows Ukraine Out of Control

According to official Russian news source rt.com, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is using the fighting in Donetsk yesterday to suggest that the Ukrainian government has lost control of east Ukraine.  Ukrainian and international sources suggest that “pro-Russian activists” were the aggressors here, attacking a demonstration in favor of Ukrainian unity.  This whole dog and pony show is very ominous.  Russian leaders on the ground use their creatures to create a lawless situation, then use that situation as justification … for what?  What comes next?  It is hard to imagine that this game ends with anything less than a play for east Ukrainian autonomy or unification with the Russian federation.
