that was not a vote in crimea. invaded by a foreign army, which operates without insignia and is denied by russia itself. active terror against tatars. it has been a terrible, terrible lie that seems to be promoted by rt, mostly (well, and the mass media in russia, of course).
So Crimea did not ask for Russian protection on the first day of the uprising in Kiev?
there are no sources claiming anything like that, even not russian ones. the first thing happening in crimea was invasion by an army wearing no insignia.
it was not a coup. the current rada is the same one for the most part. claiming anything else is a lie from the cremlin media.
Wow, just wow. Armed gangs take over a government and it's not a coup to you, nothing like changing a word to fit your means I guess. Do I need to give a LMGTFY link so you can find the definition of "coup"? Say so if you can't find the definition of the word.
Interestingly what is lost by you, and US media, is that on when the protests started even US media said the uprising started not because of an evil tyranny, but because the Government of the Ukraine didn't want to become a member of the EU. Considering how every country that has joined has gotten butfucked by global bankers, I am not sure that decision was wrong. It had nothing to do with Russia, until someone needed a villain. Wholly shit this is still in Google, go figure out how to use "Search".
not sure what the usa media did - don't think i've seen any detail on ukraine from them. not sure what media you follow, but it seems to be heavily cremlin controlled. your account of the events is wrong - either on purpose or not, that determines your evilness.
yanukovich cancelled eu cooperation (not even close to membership !) agreement, taking a loan from putin instead. a small group of students and like-minded protested in kyiv, got brutally beaten. as ukrainians said, "we are not used to citizens being beaten up" - so next day kyiv was full of protesters, this time majority of them brought out by the oppression from the special forces. more brutality, murders, kidnappings, torture... further events are more popularised - and eventually it was the rada that voted to remove yanukovich, even members of his own party ("party of regions") were leaving the party - there were dozens of deputies who left it...
compared to ukraine ? haha
Ahh, selective thinking. No, not compared to the Ukraine but compared to the US and EU allies of the US.
Learn to spell and use your caps key, I refuse to respond further to a person that lacks common courtesy with communication in addition to a critical lack of facts..
i apologise for my spelling, here in eastern europe we learned english as our third language. and we know this neighbouring country too well to see who's the aggressor.
you are either quite delusional or financially motivated to whitewash the actions of russia - which, despite there being many really great people in there, is a monster that endangers all of it's neighbours and whole world.
if you refuse to respond, that's good, because such propaganda, based on lies, can lead tu huge suffering.
