Putin does have a point about the Crimea. The have a major navel base and the area was given to the Ukraine. It has been peaceful so far even though it is a violation of international law. The EU will be reluctant to act because Russia has significant resources in UK banks and supplies one third of natural gas to Germany. Economic sanctions will be a little tricky. Certainly we are not about to invade and violate international law as we have often done in the recent past.
