A letter from a Ukranian Artist 16 December 2013

This solicited article is unedited and authentic
Hello everyone!
I'm a native Ukrainian, ciziten of Ukraine as whole my family is. I live on the East of the country (almost Russian border).  Whole world is informed about situation we have here, but almost nobody in the world can identify the truth in all this info war. I can't say about defined position of artiscit people like me, but as far as I see, singers are in Kiev trying to sing as much as possible. Such professionals are needed there now, to warm up people, to express something symbolic for others to follow. I read different information sources on Internet, watch TV, different channels and I can check it for some unreal things at once, things i'm sure in and something unclear is left for the better times. Truth is always found... in a day, month or decade, but it will be found, declassified, whatever. 
All the conclusions I'm writing now are only the result of my subjective thinking. There is nobody to support, to vote for on ellections. It's a very important fact that stops millions of people joining Maidan. But those who actually fight - just want to get rid of former president, and I support them in this. Yanukovich made many evil deeds here, his family is like a criminal clan, as he has almost total power here after changing of constitution in 2010. Timoshenko is a thief as well. Opposition triple party is a bunch of clowns... all of them. They didn't expect people to gather so powerfully, fast and in so huge number. They had the scenario they are following now, but it seems it was planned to be held on future presidential ellections. I don't understand how it is possible that Euro politicians and USA senators come to Ukraine, to Maidan and talk to people at time of strike. What if our politician comes to USA to tell a word on the meeting like this? I doubt he'd make it to come to such meeting at all. Opposition is illogical and makes mistakes all the time. I don't see where they go to the brightest future or to the dark times. Opposite party delcares fashism like ideas and it's scary. It's difficult to unite a country which was splitted long long time ago for long time being - west and east. Though I'm not against western Ukraine. Mostly they are agressors, because, lack of job here makes them angry. Then they go to Europe for work illegally mostly, so of course they want to EU. But who fed them all these years? EAST! Our plants, factories and big companies.
