Details are scarce, but we know for now that two dozen or more people have been injured in multiple bombing attacks in the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk. The first bomb struck mid-day at a crowded trolleybus stop in the city center, and three more explosions are believed to have occurred in central locations soon afterward. Throughout the afternoon and evening, local residents and security services have been seen rounding up trashcans from public places, for fear they might be used to conceal another bomb.

Yanukovych is following Putin's tactics to stay in POWER. Remember when Putin blew up Russia in order to consolidate his POWER way back when... well guess who STILL rules Russia?

Now Yanukovych will use the same tactic so he can stay in POWER for the next 20 years!

Welcome to Putin Yanukovych land!
