The speech is of historical importance, it's unprecedented and really adressed to the west.

More details later, if you know Russian, here is the live stream:

its live on television here in Ireland, with a live translation.
My girlfriend is Russian she's not even watching it.
its hard to listen to because it must be hard to translate a live speech, the translator is stopping and starting.
i'll watch an edited version later

The adress itself has ended, but everyone stays inside to sign the agreement with Republic of Crimea.

People wish they had a leader like Putin.

What do we get, Camron, Obama, McCain, Kerry et al

People wish they had referrendums like Crimea

What do we get? No referrendums.

I'm not sure why this was posted in the World War Three forum?

Anyhoo, all done now. Crimea is now Russia. Signed, sealed, delivered, it's his.

Here in Ireland we have referendums nearly every year.
Their a great way for the peoples voice to be heard

Why in WWIII forum? You should really watch the whole speech when the translation to your language arrives.
I'm not sure how west will react to direct exposure of some of their policies.

So yes, today Russian Federation was joined by two new subjects: Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol.
Sevastopol has it's own unique status and is an independent state.
Official languages in Crimea will be Russian, Ukraninan and Crimean-Tatar.

I watched it live with the RT translation.

There was no threat of starting war. Nor will the West start war, they will huff and puff and bring in more toothless sanctions.

No, quite deliberate word choice.

Referendums are not for political decisions, they are for changing a constitution.
So voting on a bank bailout is obviously not gonna happen
