What concerns me most when I see cartoons tackling the Ukraine crisis, is their use of the hammer & sickle symbol.I worry about the value of the opinion as regards the understanding of the crisis: how well informed are you if that simple matter is wrong?
Or have I misunderstood Stahler and he is stating that this latest referendum is a throwback to Soviet era days and their voting tactics? But then it wasn’t the Ukrainian government who held a referendum, the breakaway wannabes did. Or, is he saying the current Ukrainian government wasn’t quite ‘voted’ in?
I dunno. Jeff, want to help out?
