That article link by OP..............also mentions that US and UK will never accept Crimea's recognition as being a part of Russia.
It is the (English speaking) AngloSaxon nose that creates problems everywhere by poking and interfering in peaceful matters.
Article also mentioned, Russia is Germany's #1 trade partner and Russia's trade with EU is nearly Half Trillion.
Why is USA trying to create problems here? It is afraid that non-English speaking Europe might join in with Germany and Russia as leaders leaving NATO in tatters and US facing competition from EuroAsian bloc in addition to China.
After 1991, usefulness of NATO diminished by alot but still it had reasons to be present to thwart misbehavior by Germany or Russia. However, on the contrary, it is the NATO which went on misbehaving by expanding eastwards and now knocking on the doors of Russia. That is something Russians will never live with and their actions have shown their resolve.
How would Merkel feel if Russia re-enacted its WW2 aquisition of Sudentland proince in Germanys north with their dodgy refferendum they held....then same again Hitler did invading Austria and again holding a didgy referendum.
Its why Cyprys is still divided when it should be all Greek,
Why the English are still in Northern Ireland.
Many exmaples of the same.
Threats of violence can not be accepted as a reason to screw a country's territorial integrity.
Thats why they are fighting, to rid Russia of inteference.
