The opposition could have waited a couple of months for the scheduled 2014 presidential election. They knew they cannot take power in an election given Yanukovych's popularity. Their only chance was the coup. The mes that followed led to the deaths of nearly 4000 Ukrainian soldiers to date.

Ukrainian soldiers in Crimea did not fight. Ukrainian soldiers sent to Donbas didn't want to fight. They do not want to fight for a government that came to power through a coup and a corrupt one that only benefits oligarchs and not the people.

If the Ukrainian government was for the people, the Ukrainian soldiers in Crimea would have fought and Russia would have never been able to annex Crimea.

I'd argue that Estonia is doing way better than Russia. Especially now that Russia's economy is in the toilet. Does that mean that Estonia has the right to annex Russia?


If the people of Russia wish to be citizens of Estonia, be my guest. Last I heard, ethnic Russians are treated like crap in Estonia.

So the US has the right to annex all of Mexico?

That's ok. We will do what the Russians did in Crimea. The ethnic russians will be forced to leave and ethnic estonians will replace them, and then it will all belong to estonia and that is just and right ....
