MOSCOW, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The Republic of Crimea has been added to the maps of Russia on the official websites of the Russian President and the Russian Government.

Starting from Monday, the Republic of Crimea and the City Of Sevastopol have also been designated as new parts of the Russian Federation in the maps of Russia’s largest search engine, Yandex, and on the website of Russia’s Federation Council, the upper house of Parliament.

Crimea is deemed accepted to the Russian Federation following the results of the referendum, held in the republic on March 16. According to final referendum returns, 96.7% of Crimean residents who voted in the referendum backed Crimea’s reunification with Russia without taking into account the voting results in the Crimean City Of Sevastopol. As many as 95.6% of local residents participating in the plebiscite supported Sevastopol’s accession to Russia.

On March 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees on the accession of Crimea and Sevastopol to the Russian Federation. The signing ceremony was held at the Catherine Hall of the Kremlin. Putin signed the law on the ratification of the interstate Agreement “On the Accession of the Republic of Crimea to the Russian Federation and Forming New Constituent Entities within the Russian Federation” that had been signed on March 18. According to the Agreement, from this date the Republic of Crimea is considered a territory of the Russian Federation. Putin also signed the federal constitutional law on Crimea’s accession to Russia and on forming new constituent entities in the country - the Republic of Crimea and the federal City Of Sevastopol.

Yeah, but this is his "last territorial demand in Central Eastern Europe," right?

I have never spent a dime on Absolut since then, and the underwhelming apology by the company.
