So said Russia's Parliament Friday as it gave its defiant support to Crimean lawmakers who want to see their region split from Ukraine and join Russia.
The lawmakers' unanimous call for a vote on separation prompted howls of outrage Thursday in the United States and Europe -- and the threat of sanctions, including asset freezes, visa bans and travel bans.

Obama is a disgrace.
It seems self-determination is fine for a handful of Soros funded firebomb throwing insurrections in one part of Kiev but not for the elected representatives of the people of Crimea. Unbelievable hypocrisy.
No surprise, we've taken to disliking that peon voting thingy these days. Voters with opposing views will be ignored, eliminated and/or visited by the "powers that be" (IRS).
You are so right.
Of course they do, the referendum has only choices for how to join Russia, nothing for remaining where they are or being independent.
I have long said it was gonna hurt when the chickens came home to roost. Didn’t have to be this way. But thanks ever so much Dems, for your insane policies. thanks GOP for fully funding them and attacking the people trying to get you to stop. And of course, thanks MSM for all that you have done to destroy us all. We sure do appreciate your efforts.
Actions have consequences.
Putin would win by 99% and still not be doing as well as Obunga did in Philly in 2012....
The "elected representative of Ukraine voted to impeach Yanuk. You're being hypocritical.
Self determination for all.
Take back the color blue.
FUN (F* the UN)
I don't think the Crimean Parliament was surrounded by an armed and angry mob that had driven off the opposition supporters when they had that vote. They also followed the proper and legal procedures. Can't say the same for the kangaroo court farce that went on Kiev. Hypocrisy.
