“If one of those uncontrolled sites containing chemicals were to detonate, tens of thousands of people could be poisoned. It is a potential disaster on the scale of Chernobyl,” Robert Amsterdam, Russian political expert and lawyer at international law firm Amsterdam & Partners, told Fox News.

In today's age you can't quell a rebellious uprising by shear force. Ukraine is a shining example of a totalitarian regime implemented under the pretense of democracy.
