There is about 45 million Ukrainian people. Of that amount, about 2 million people reside in the Crime region. Of that population in the Crimea,
only 54% identify as ethnic Russian.
So the claims that its a majority is not accurate either.
Those who are not Ethnic Russian / Identify as Ethnic Russian are actually being attacked by Pro Russian's in the Crimea region. Ironic really,
since that was the excuse Russia used to invade the Crimea.
As I have brought up many times, and is ignored by those supporting Russia many times, what is the difference between Crimea and Chechnya?
The population of Chechnya is not predominately Russian and they have no desire to be a part of Russia, yet Putin has twice invaded to put down their
moves for sovereignty.
Its one of the reasons I refuse to accept Russias excuse for going into the Crimea. Russia is loosing the PR fight since they are unable to support
their claims for taking action in Crimea with evidence. They tried to have the UN meetings closed to the public and lost. That is because they
feared what is now happening - they are being called out to produce evidence to support their claims and so far Russia cannot do that.
If its ok for Russia to invade Crimea then its ok for foreign nations to invade Chechnya.
Question for anyone to answer by the way - What is the difference between Crimea and Chechnya.
