April 25, 1974. The Portuguese Revolution was heralded by the transmission of the songs E Depois do Adeus and then Grândola, Vila Morena, an indication that a military coup was under way to oust the Estado Novo (New State) political regime, paving the path for change. Today, the strategists may be satisfied, the idealists horrified.
The situation in the south-east of Ukraine remains extremely tense, but Kiev is not going to solve the problem in the region constructively.
