Anarchism in the context of civil war | Автономное Действие - анархисты, либертарные коммунисты, антифа
Another view of the Ukraine situation after the Odessa tragedy. This is the most lucid analysis I've read, and it seems to be rather balanced. The author (who is not Ukrainian) doesn't think the Fascists were able to convert Maidan into any real gains, and emphasizes that the thing to do now is stay out of conflicts on either side as the protests devolve toward civil war:

"However, none of the fears of «fascist takeover» have materialized. Fascists gained very little real power, and in Ukraine their historical role will now be that of stormtroopers for liberal reforms demanded by the IMF and the European Union — that is, pension cuts, an up to five times increase in consumer gas prices, and others. Fascism in Ukraine has a powerful tradition, but it has been incapable of proceeding with its own agenda in the revolutionary wave. ...
"Whereas it may occasionally be worth it to swallow tear gas or to feel the police baton for a bourgeois revolution, it makes no sense at all to die in a civil war between two equally bourgeois and nationalist sides. It would not be another Maidan but something completely different. No blood, anarchist or otherwise, should spill due to this stupidity."
