    Pardon my confusion on not understanding why our government objects to an autonomous region having a referendum on what country it wishes to be affiliated with. It seems we are objecting to the Crimean people democratically deciding their future.

    “Back in the ‘90s, Russia signed a treaty that it would defend the ’95 borders of the Ukraine. Russia is now in clear violation of that treaty.”

    I can understand that Russia is in violation of that treaty by occupying Crimea, but I consider as a separate issue that our government objects to a referendum within Crimea at the behest of the Crimean people (seemingly) and authorized by the Crimean government.

    While it may be a semi-autonomous region, Crimea is still a part of Ukraine. Should the people of Texas take a referendum about becoming a part of Mexico?

    Texas is not a semi-autonomous region. Scotland is a semi-autonomous region of Great Britain yet we don’t have any objections to Scotland’s voting for Independence.

    The Ukrainian constitution says that a state wanting to secede requires a vote by all Ukrainians. Putin has the “vote” rigged, in that the Crimeans have two choices – annex to the Sov… er, Russian state, or be an “independent” satellite of the Russian State. They advertise pro-Ukrainian votes as being fascist (with Nazi flags), and intimidation of those who do not agree has been going on.
