Russia's Little Green Men Enter Ukraine crisis: first shots 2 months ago   04:36

Russia has invaded the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine and taken over its civilian and military infrastructure. Not a shot has been fired so far, but Russia is using its superior force to intimidate Ukrainian troops in an attempt to get them to surrender.

Russia claims it wants to stabilize the situation on the peninsula, which has a large Russian population, but Ukraine's new government regards the move as an occupation of its sovereign territory.

Russia is taking BACK Crimea and the 90% Russian cultural population is Supporting that. They are better off them to live in a Ukraine that is Racist and Fascist against minorities in general and Russians in Particular.
