Crimea's residents vote to leave Ukraine and rejoin Russia

The inhabitants of what until now was part of Ukraine for many years have decided to rejoin Russia:
Voters in the Crimea region of Ukraine voted overwhelmingly on Sunday to secede from their country and join Russia, in a major victory for Moscow that followed days of international condemnation that the referendum itself was illegitimate.

The results of the vote in the predominantly ethnic Russian peninsula were not unexpected, coming several weeks after Kremlin-led forces took control of the region. But the crucial step toward official annexation by Russia will further raise tensions with Ukraine, as well as with the United States and Europe, which have promised an escalation of sanctions. An election official said 95 percent of voters supported joining Russia, with about half of ballots counted, the Associated Press reports.
Why do they want to rejoin a country still being run by totalitarianism? This is sad.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
