mrgreen: I cross checked lots of stories regarding this event and the only ones that seemed coherent and believable came from Russia. Everything else left out context, history, relevant facts, etc. I've had my doubts about the veracity of mainstream news channels in the past, but my doubts have reached an all-time high with this story.

Putin Disses Poroshenko’s Attempt To Contact Him On Phone: It's Pre-Election Stunt And Manipulation
Putin refuses to play games with Poroshenko. Will Poroshenko come to his sense (doubtful) or will he double-down (disastrous) or will someone within Ukraine put him in his place (hopefully).

Google acknowledges Crimea as Russian
Maps should reflect the reality of a situation, not the wishes of NATO or the USA.

Ukraine elections: Zelensky wins 73% of votes in an overwhelming victory
This might be the beginning of a major shift in the political direction of Ukraine. Then again it might just be a case of "Meet the new boss.... same as the old boss...."

Russian aerobatic teams show off their skills at combat aviation competition in Crimea
It's been more than five years since the annexation of Crimea and it looks like the people of Crimea are quite happy to no longer be part of Ukraine! Who can blame them?
