“All those people were out there waving flags in the streets last night, but the rest of us are just waiting — for what, we don’t know,” said Dimitry Kozimov, a cafe manager in the Crimean capital, Simferopol, who is worried because his supplies of fresh meat from Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, have stopped. He has more questions than answers. Will his liquor license cost more? Can he still commute between his home in Ukraine and his job in a new Russian territory? Will he be taxed twice? “The only thing I’m sure of is that this is going to be a very difficult time for us.”

There are always winners and losers. If he wants to be a winner, he needs to see his 'problems' as an opportunity to be a winner for himself and his family. Which reading between the lines I think he does. I just hate 'sound bite' journalism.

Here is proof that the US is actively involved in the political changes in Ukrain.

The first video was picked up by the Russians. This is confirmed in video number 2. She calles it a New low from the Russians.

MOSCOW, March 18 (RIA Novosti) – Russian energy giant Gazprom is seeking access to oil and gas deposits in the territorial waters of Crimea, which became Russian territory on Tuesday.
“Gazprom was the first to file its request,” Rustam Temirgaliyev, the region’s first deputy prime minister, said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
The Crimean parliament, which refused to recognize the new Ukrainian government and held a popular vote on secession and reunification with Russia on Sunday, ruled on Monday that all Ukrainian state property in the region is to become the property of Crimea.
Crimean leaders signed a reunification treaty with Russia on Tuesday.
According to Temirgaliyev, about 1.5 billion cubic meters of gas are extracted annually in Crimea, which has one of the biggest Black Sea shelf deposits of oil and gas.

Good, send some trade their way. Perfect place for that Southern Pipe, which will end up in Europe anyway.

I agree. At least they did it the right way instead of just going in with an army and taking control of it by force. Like some countries we know.

I disagree the EU botched this bad now everyones running around trying yo figure out how to fix it. Which means diplomats will be working overtime trying to patch up the Ukrainian government. There a disorganized mess with 4 different factions vying for control of the new government. Ukraine needs to get behind one of these groups yesterday.Hoprfully wont be the far right if they want to survive.

Its no secret the state department is pissed they advised before this the EU needs to stay out of Ukraine over a year ago. It was no secret this was going to be a flash point with Russia.However the EU was thinking of gas production and Royal dutch petroleum went in smelling blood. Funny part is now some of the exploratory work they did is going to go to the Russians in sure there execs are up in arms at the lost revenue.

No they wanted gas rights and made one hell of an offer to Ukraine estimates upwards of 100 billion a year to develop the gas rights in truth it was going to be less because shell i have a feeling over estimated the resources. They were saying this could be achieved through fracking im betting they're wrong. But we shall see no one did regime change here merely made a better offer than the Russians even though the state department advised them not to. But they can't control a european gas company. There was a lot more going on then you're overly simplistic view. The EU never intended to oust the president if they had they wouldnt have made him 5 different offers to entice him because now there locked into an investment that wont see returns for a long time.
