September 18th, 2016 – Fort Russ News –
In March 2014, following a violent government coup in Kiev, Crimeans voted with an overwhelming majority for independence from the Ukrainian state. 84% of Crimeans as whole turned up to vote in the referendum, with 97% in favour of unification with the Russian Federation. In Sevastopol, a city with a longstanding history of Russian military battles and victories, had a 90% turnout, and also voted 97% in favour.
Crimea was initially gifted to the Ukraine in 1954 by Soviet leader Nikita Kruschev, who did not have sufficient quorum members in the Supreme Soviet (USSR parliament) for the decision to be voted on legitimately. But Kruschev was an ethnic Ukrainian and gifted the Crimea to the Ukraine by decree. Admittedly, Kruschev couldn’t have foreseen that one day the Soviet Union may not be one unified territory. He could not have foreseen that the US would carry out a government coup in what was Russia’s closest ally, and in this way – the historic Russian naval city, Sevastopol, may end up in NATO disposition.
It is difficult to guess the reasoning of the White House to think they could pull this off – as it is more likely that Russians would go to war for Sevastopol, than ever see it under NATO or US control. However, no blood was spilled this time and the Crimea made a quick, painless transition into Russia.
The majority of Crimeans today identify as ethnic Russians – the complete opposite to the words of Mr McCain at the end of this video.
Accusations of “annexation” quickly replaced principles of legal rights to self-determination in Western media. The right to decide which country your geographical area belongs to is enshrined in the UN Charter and other instruments of international law.
In this outtake of 9th May, Victory Day parade in Sevastopol (2014) – it becomes starkly evident that Fascism was not fully eradicated in WWII – the parasite simply changed continents.
