Ukraine and Crimea

Russia takes Crimea

What you doing Russia?!

Russia recently took a territory of Ukraine called Crimea. Russia is saying that they don't recognize Ukraine as a eligible country. Ukrainian Prime Minister accused Moscow of declaring war after taking Crimea.

The U.S is saying that the conflict is now switching from a political issue to a military issue. A military base was invaded by Russian soldiers. The Ukrainian flag was taken down and replaced by 2 Russian flags.

After taking Crimea, Russia made the Crimea population vote on annexation. It was basically if you didn't vote for annexation you where killed.
