Yey! More Putinist propoganda. There is no “Republic of Crimea”, it is a military occupation by a Russian dictatorship. This “Republic” has no “Constitution”, it is govern by the martial law of a Russian occupying force. This “Republic” has no “President” Askyonov is a puppet governor who does whatever the Kremlin dictatorship tells him. Putin is not a “President”, he is a tyrant.
Gopgoldstate is in competition to post the most pro-Putin propaganda on FReeRepublic. He’s one of a handful of quisling Putinistas who take up bandwidth cheer leading Putin on over the Ukrainians. Real solid conservatives, these guys are.
Who says any one favors taking away Ukrainian independence? I am simply reporting historical events that occurred.
People are free to make their own judgments about their significance.
