If the Crimean's Didn't want the Russian's there, there would be no defections and a lot more blood spilled
Actions speak louder than words Regardless of the twisted stories and propaganda
Though the elections may seem sloppy, so was the bloody overthrow. Not saying what the Russian's are doing here is right, just slightly less wrong.

There are lots of problems with the current ballot in Crimea from the dressing of the polling stations to the questions on the ballot papers. I found this picture circulating today...



What a surprise! A tick in the box to join Russia.


Indeed there are HUGE problems with the voting setup.

NO.1
80,000 troops deployed before the polling day!
(No Pressure eh)

NO.2
Ukraine Didn't initiate the Poll!
(Illegal)

N0.3
The Poll has been organized by a Foreign power (Russia)
(Illegal and an act of war)

Nothing else needs to be said here.. regardless of the outcome.

NO.4

Questions being voted for:
1. Do you support unification with Russia as a subject of Russian Federation.
2. Do you support restoration of 1992 Crimean Republic constitution and status as part of Ukraine.
(Technicly also not part of Ukraine, as it becomes independent entity? With foreign army stationed there there's no doubt how things will progress)

This was posted on YT a couple of hours ago, in this report we see volunteers taking an oath to serve Crimea, receive some gear etc, and some information on how the troops of Ukraine will be treated in the event the Crimeans' vote to join the Russian federation and some developments at another base as well..

Currently pro Russian rallies on going on Kharkiv, Donetsk and Odessa, demanding referendum, federalisation, etc, some violent.

Also on TV, showing Russian armour moving towards border of Kharkiv, predicts an invasion of eastern Ukraine soon.

Have you not seen the Russian army in Crimea and the peaceful protests of pro Ukraine marches being attacked and killed by plan close Russia soldiers? Funny how All pro Russia support is from Middle aged men and the pro Ukraine demos are full of men women and children

Here's how they voted for many years before the Russians invade and folded the Crimea with 20,000 troops



So I supply hard facts and you supply speculation and Russian propaganda ?


Oh and then there is the ballot papers

Tell me... How are people support to vote when the choice is already penned in?

Kadyrov’s message reads:

Dear friends! The referendum has taken place in Crimea! More than half of the electorate voted a few hours ago. It is universally acknowledged that it took place without any violations. Based on preliminary data, the people have answered “yes” to the question on joining Russia. I have just had a telephone conversation with the premier.

well since you post opinion and not new here's mine

the vote to join russia is not over (or almost) 70% participation the result is in favor to join the Russia so it just a normal move to take the same monetary as the contry you join.

If you think the referendum was legal or not will not change anything to vote is done Crimea want to join Russia and the EU and USA will be upset but will not make anymove.

im not pro russia... exemple im a Canadian and im looking cautionly at USA and Russia claiming our northern region as their.

Exit polls show 93% of voters in Ukraine's Crimea supported union with Russia - @riabreakingnews via @Reuters

According to Ria Novosti, a Russian news agency, 93% of voters in Crimea have chosen to rejoin Russia. No surprise there really. I just wish the Ukrainian government pulled their socks up and tried to take Crimea back. It is legally theirs and the voters have been forced to vote with thousands upon thousands of Russian troops and pro-Russian gangs in their midst. The ballot was illegitimate.
