  1. Western “observers” are comming.They will figure out exactly how to take it all back a little more violently.I dont know that the Russians are prepared for the massive onslaught to come.It would require a more massive and organized proceedure(s) than whe have seen in these events.

  2. Russia has not “captured”. Russia has stolen ! Russia cannot be trusted anymore…

    And we still wait for the huge number of Ukrainian soldiers who joined the Crimean army. Not seen any yet…

  3. Well… We can all argue if Russia has stolen, captured or simply been re-united with Crimea, but one thing is for sure, the overwhelming majority of Crimeans are happy about it.

    So, using peacefully the ballot box, they got democratically what the Kosovars, with the West’s blessing, took by violence, murderes and terrorism.

    So, all in all, not a bad result in Crimea so far …
