Ukraine is a sinking boat. Only chance for Crimea is to leave it as fast as they can.

'It is impossible to bring Crimea to the brink of separation'- expert
http://voiceofrussia.com/2014_02_28/It-is-imp...
"I donĺt think it is possible to shatter Crimea and to bring it to the brink of separation. There are not many people obsessed with the idea of separation. There are not many super activists, like those who were protesting in the Maidan," Valery Semenenko, Deputy Chairman of the Ukrainians of Russia Organization, told The Voice of Russia.

Yeah cause almost all of the Crimean population are Russians. Thats why this Russian scum Yanukovich is flying there to be welcomed by his comrads. To show that at least he's got some support left in there, among his fellow Russian immigrants within Ukraine.

Crimea was always Russian.

It was stolen from Russia and given to Ukraine by a bloody Ukrainian dictator; Krutshev !!

At the end of the Soviet Union, Russia should have taken it back; by force if necessary!!!

Russia sold Alaska to US. Why doesn't Russia take Alaska from US? Maybe because US is not Ukraine. C'mon man. Stop talking crazy.

It does not matter, Russia did not take it back, so its their own fault, therefore right now its Ukraine, and Russians must fck off back to mother Russia. Fair enough.

get this through those skulls of yours, wherever Russian has set foot, that is Russia. NYC and Cam Ranh bay are both Russian because foot of Russian has been there.
Why is that so hard to figure out?
