I want to share this and then I’ll probably stop talking about this because I am tired, to be honest.
I live in Ukraine. I was born on its territory, too, but when USSR was existing. In 1991 I’ve became Ukrainian citizen.
I have no patriotic feelings and I rather will mention that I have Georgian roots but this is still my country. Which I live in.
On this Sunday in our Autonomous Republic of Crimea was conducted referendum. It was done extremely fast, not exactly legally, with almost no watchers, with tons of Russian military personnels on the peninsula and in situation of extreme propaganda. By this referendum people ~voted~ that they want to become part of Russia and yesterday Russia agreed
Now nothing is understandable. Crimea is extremely related to Ukraine in its resources (water, gas, electricity). A lot of Crimean kids are studying in Ukrainian unis for free. There are Ukrainian military bases in Crimea that are suddenly “Russian” now by this referendum and are being attacked (yesterday one person was killed).
I know a lot of Russians are happy. They’ve thought Crimea is their territory since forever.
But as of now, this country, who still calls itself “brother nation” stole 5% of our territory. And is happy about this.
