You mean an irrelevant red herring. Wikileaks cables have nothing to do with polling the population of Crimea, which is 60% ethnic Russian. As for Putin's meddling, that's a perfectly valid subject, so long as you aren't throwing stones in a glass house. That's the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, wife of PNAC neocon Robert Kagan, openly bragging about how the U.S. has spent $5 billion supporting "pro-west" capitalists to give Ukraine "the future it deserves".
In front of banners for fucking Chevron and ExxonMobile. A scene that you would have laughed out of the room if you were Tom Clancy's editor for one of his ghostwritten books.
