Sorry you may not like the reality but denying reality is just flaunting ignorance. When people start calling educated answers "Russian Bots" , we know the level of our discourse has collapsed to a point of no recovery. I am not Pro Russia (was an anti slav for most of my youth) but fact is Crimea was part of The Russian Empire for along time before being made part of Ukraine duirng the soviet Union. This is black letter history. I wish Ukraine and the Ukrainians the very best but while I am opposed to whats going on in the Donbass with the rebels (tho they also started out with a legitimate grievance) what goes on w/ Crimea is really nobodies business except Russia's, Crimea was part of Ukraine only so long as Ukraine kept its "Little Russia" identity which it no longer has.
