MORE UKRAINE UPDATES HERE, from King Banaian.

UPDATE: John O’Sullivan looks at winners and losers so far:

The final losers are the U.N. and Kofi Annan. The U.N. has been invisible. As Kofi Annan has been trying to keep his head above oil, he has issued his usual appeal for restraint. But this crisis has brought forth the heroes of the Cold War from retirement — Vaclav Havel, Lech Walesa and Margaret Thatcher — to encourage the orange revolutionaries. And Annan cannot begin to compete with their moral authority or the legitimacy they can bestow.

Indeed.

And read this piece, on lessons from Georgia and elsewhere, too.

ANOTHER UPDATE: More here, including a link to video.
