The immense Inertia of Ukraine and its people will ensure Ukraine will last forever. Quick Change is unheard of.It is a survival tactic of Ukraine and has worked for three centuries.

The autonomy of the Crim bothers me a little bit. It is similar to a rather stpid policy in the U.S. concerning Native Americans ( a silly term for Indians but it makes them happier). They are allowed dual citizenship both U.S. and Their Indian nation. They even have special laws of their own for the reservation areas. It works but has many drawbcks. How much simpler if they were just Americns. How much simpler is the Crim was just a section of Ukraine without the autonomy which was created to keep the ethnic Russins there from raising cain.

The problem here is that the majority of Crimean residents are not of Ukrainian descent, but rather Russian or even Tatar. Why would the Autonomous Republic want to be part of Ukraine then? That is exactly why it is autonomous. I agree completely. To take it a step further, I do not think the Ukrainian language should be the mandatory language of official government business in Crimea. It is a pain in the ass for 75% of the population. The Ukrainian government can't even respect the rights of ALL of its citizens by imposing such ridiculous language laws.
