What is especially interesting about them is this:

yeah I've been following this... fascinating stuff. Quite perilous too I think, I hope it is peacefully resolved. I'm sympathetic to the protesters but fear a devolution into bad chaos ala Syria, Egypt, etc. Or even Yugoslavia though thankfully I don't think there is a major ethnic split in Ukraine.. is there? Mostly "Ruthenian" people right?

Anyway, more grist for the mill

Apparently now angry cosplayers are active in Eastern Ukraine. I didn't know that gaming community is so dangerous.
