So… You know how the Olympics in Sochi were so great, and – oh – isn’t Putin great and NOT AT ALL involved in the situation in Ukraine? Well, why is Russia closing in on Crimea (which is, you know, in UKRAINE)? Why did Russians take over Crimea’s parliament overnight? Why is there now a Russian flag flying on top of the building? Why are there Russian politicians in Crimea stirring up talks about separation?
Why is Putin ordering military exercises on the Ukrainian border?
I’ve actually had Russians telling me the corrupt, overturned government wasn’t pro-Russian. The Russian media is now reporting the United States is harbouring deposed president Viktor Yanukovych. It’s ridiculous that the internet exists but Russia still prefers to listen to Kremlin-endorsed propaganda.
