What right does putin have to dictate in Ukraine how they can vote and then limit their choices? What if the Crimeans want to just be their own country?
This is like a repeat of the Maidan. While the Ukrainians wanted independence, they had to choose between EU or Russia.
Crimea is broke just as Ukraine is bankrupt.
They need a Sugar Daddy and Moscow is expected to bump up their economy to the standard of living in Russia.
I too would vote to join Moscow under the circumstances.
