Another Russian shill emerges.

I'm guessing you have no problem with Putin annexing another nation's sovereign territory using military force? Or having Putin threaten to use nukes if anyone challenges his moves?
 Quoting: hIndsIght2020


Except that it wasn't a sovereign territory.

The modern history of Crimea begins with the annexation by the Russian Empire in 1783. In 1921 the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic was created. This republic was dissolved in 1945, and the Crimea became an oblast first of the Russian SSR (1945-1954) and then the Ukrainian SSR (1954-1991). Since 1991 the territory was covered by the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol City within independent Ukraine. During the 2014 Crimean crisis, independence was declared and a referendum on whether to join Russia was held. The peninsula subsequently was annexed to the Russian Federation as two federal subjects—the Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol.
