I sent this email to the

I sent this email to the various emails listed for Flashpoints. The ones for Dennis Bernstein both bounced. My point is the highly inaccurate depiction of what happened in the Ukrainian parliament, and the depiction that the only choice is between US/EU fascist thugs and thugs whose loyalty lies with Putin and the Russian oligarchs.
"Hello,

On Tuesday, February 24, Prof Francis Boyle was interviewed by Dennis Bernstein on Flashpoints regarding the situation in Ukraine. An assertion was made that the vote against Yanukovych took place after most of the Parliament left town due to intimidation or disinformation. Regardless of what might think of the parliament, here are the facts.

The parliament has 450 members/

The vote to remove Yanukovych was 380 to 0, including most of the members of Yanukovych's party, the Party of the Regions.

Prof Boyle, like Prof Steven Cohen, whom he likes, would have us believe that either one is allied with Putin, or with the US/EU/fascist elements. The following interview with a Ukrainian anarchist belies this notion.

Looking forward for something which doesn't try to do the same old song.
