More on the Ukranian-Russian crisis
March 4, 2014 2 Comments
So Russia is still claiming they have the right to send in troops into the Crimea from some agreement signed with the Ukraine.
They are claiming the current [interim] president shouldn’t be there because of the way the exiled president Viktor Yanukovych was thrown out. [Even still Russia says that Yanukovych shouldn’t be president]. They accept those who are elected in the Ukrainian government. But those same elected officials voted the interim president in as interim president. So if Russia accepts the officials, then by extension they must accept the interim president.
Meanwhile, the Russians also claim that they entered Ukraine to defend ethic Russians because Russia claimed they were threatened. There has been no actual reports that ethnic Russians were killed or injured.
This would be like China saying it will invade Canada because it believes those of Chinese descent are being threatened in some way. [By extension, Italy could do the same for anyone under the Roman empire.]
