I vaguely remember many talking heads in Washington back in the day justifying certain military actions in a very similar manner. Those were wrong but this is ok right?
Economic pressure and saving face eh?
If those people identify so much with Russia then why not simply cross the border? More likely if this isn't peaceably solved there will be a split and I'm sure nobody will be happy then either.
