Ladies and gentlemen....let me introduce the undesputed World Champion of Democracy, the one and only Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.
While the porch monkey in the white house along with NATO and the EU, overthrew a democratically elected President of Ukraine in a violent and bloody coup, President Putin took Crimea back to Russia with a democratic referendum and without firing a shot.
Congratulations to President Putin and the Russian Federation.

EU, US impose sanctions against Russian officials over Crimea referendum

US President Barack Obama has ordered that sanctions be applied against 11 Russian and Ukrainian officials, the White House said. Earlier, the EU imposed sanctions against 21 officials after Crimea declared its independence.

The US has imposed sanctions against Russian and Ukrainian officials on Monday, with the White House stating that "the actions and policies" of the Russian government with respect to Ukraine "undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets."

Obama’s executive order applies to seven top Russian officials, including presidential aide Vladislav Surkov, presidential adviser Sergey Glazyev, State Duma deputy Leonid Slutsky, member of the upper chamber of the Russian parliament (the Federation Council) Andrey Klishas, head of the upper chamber of the Russian parliament Valentina Matvienko, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and State Duma deputy Yelena Mizulina.

ps Thanks for this present to Russia. No Russian politician should have a property in the US or EU. All their property and assets should be in Russia.

When most of the free world castrates the Nazi, KGB wannabe Putin, from all the assets and bank accounts world wide and product stops coming into Russia, oil and gas stop moving out and people lose jobs, houses, and gas prices sky rocket, hmmmmmm then Putin may get some people throwing rocks at him and wake him from his drunken stuper to realize he really f cked up.

As far as the other proRussians in East Ukraine, keep customs open and let them into Russia, Ukraine certainly does not need them and Russia wants them so shooo them pigs into Russia.

Obama is a good guy and he want to help Putin. I think we can say thanks to both of them. This looks like a good month for Russia - we got Crimea and USA shows support to our economy. I hope, EU will impose this so-called "sanctions" too.:)

LOL...I see you've been into the vodka bottle again you insignificant little Ukrainko Nazi idiot.
Crimea is gone and soon Eastern Ukraine will have a referendum and follow into the Russian Federation.
You can thank the USA for spending 5 billion dollars to destabilize Ukraine and overthrow the democratically elected President of Ukraine in a bloody coup and install a violent gang of Nazi thugs in Kiev.

Did you mean the ethnic Russians in Crimea have spoken YES for Russia and NO for the West after Putin & Kremlin has rolled its tanks in by invading Crimea? Yes exactly, we all know this already. Are you saying that invasion should be honored? No thanks.

LOL.....I think the Crimeans said NO to being ruled by a violent Nazi junta installed in Kiev in a bloody coup by the USA, NATO and the EU clowns.
You just lost Crimea and there is more to come while the West barks like rabid jackals.

That's what these yahoos haven't grasped yet. Best thing Russia could hope for are sanctions. Money spent and invested internally instead of leaving the country.

We honored a coup d'etat and saddled up to some very nasty people, why not your so-called invasion?

BTW: if there are any tanks there, they're there to keep those nasties away. The Crimeans certainly didn't need any 'encouragement' to vote their preferences. Just look at those well-behaved crowds. WOW. What a difference from Maidan, eh?
