For some reason I'm really offended that what meets the images of the riots in the Ukraine from the commentariat around here are references to vampires, 300 and Monty Python. Why can't they debate the actions of the protesters and the government? Why can't we talk about the EU or Putin's greed? Why can't we talk about the human impact?

Nah. Just reference a multi-million dollar blockbuster with a gif and text and you've given it all the thought required.
