1. @all you crackerJack historians.

    crimea had an independence vote in the 90s. perhaps you can all wrap your heads around that one. they never wanted to be in Ukraine, but were forced to by Kiev. in 91 crimea even passed a law stating as such: it was an autonomous republic within ukraine.

    Russian soldiers were already in crimea as per the agreement with ukraine prior to the military coup that happened in kiev (not a legitimate act of democracy). these soldiers didn't cross into crimea, they were already there. ukraine collected nearly $1 billion in rental and received a discounted rate on fuel.

    Like the russians allowed the soviet union to break into its automonous regions, crimeans were expecting ukraine to follow suit and accept the over 90% majority vote to leave: they didn't though. good enough for the goose, but somehow not for the gander...

  2. Simple solution Russia gets Crimea, Serbia Albanian split Kosovo, Serbia joins with Repulika Srpska.
    Bosinak, Croats , Montenegro, Makedonja , Albania can all join up and send their sons to fight the US oil wars .
    (Draza Putin, 31 July 2017 13:05)

    Even simpler solution. Bosnia gets Sandzak,Kosovo gets Presevo Valley, Hungary gets Vojvodina and serbs can go and fight Czar Putin's wars.

  3. Peggy, serbians did lots of crimes in kosovo throughout history, 90s were just another chapter.

    Starting w firing albanians from public offices in 90s, killings in protests , all the way to 98 - 99 when serbs massacred 13.000 albanians and dislocated 1million out of kosovo. Racak is only one of many. Massive graves have been found throughout serbia for the last 17 years... the list is long... anyway does not mean new generations should suffer from the past. The future can always be better.

  5. And there was no other option for kosovo anyway, knowing what serbians did there.
    ===…==
    Mr G, what exactly did Serbia do to people in Kosovo and please don't mention Racak because that's a whole lot of bull?
    Serbia didn't do anything than was required of her to save Serbs who were terrorized for a long time by rabid Albanians. When terror against Serbs wasn't working they decided to start killing policemen in order to provoke an ugly situation which they got.
    So with exception of defending Serbs and police what did Serbia do? Go after the KLA? That's a bad thing?

  6. Mr. G.: Crimea was annexed by russians killing ukranians and no referendum, after years of its independence from USSR, which was accepted by Russia long time ago, and no UN intervention. Completely illegal aggression.


    And that's why 10 km long row of Ukrainan cars is standing on the border to the 'occupied' Crimea ... while 70-80% of the Ukrainians want to restore relations with Russia and 4 000 000 of them earn money in Russia ... and 90% of the Ukrainian Web is in Russian ... 1 000 000 of Ukrainians wait for the Russian citizenship ect.

    Brna bitch must keep in mind the small obstacle to improve relations with Ukraine. It's name is Russia. If only she isn't going to drink and whistle at the time. To say nothing that project UKRAINE is close to an end.

  7. There was not one shot fired in Crimea nor one casualty.
    (Zoran, 29 July 2017 01:17)

    Yes, like there was not one shot fired nor one casualty when a thug robbed at gunpoint an elderly woman last week... So, it's not clear what your point is!

  8. Mr. Zoran, it does not matter who accepted it or not, as long as there was a referendum by the free will of the majority. And there was no other option for kosovo anyway, knowing what serbians did there.
    Hiwever, that will of the majority was also voted pro by all 5 communities of kosovo , except serbians.

    On the ukraine issue, russia did accept its borders and constitution since its independence from soviet union ( just like kosovo from YU), but later regret it and let the militia enter the ukranian territory and kill civilians. Thats a known fact and not my incention.

  9. There was no 'YU' in 1913. It's amazing that people can so wrong and use the internet to post risk but can't even check the basics.

    I keep wondering where all these delusional people come from? There was not one shot fired in Crimea nor one casualty. Crimea returned to Russia after a referendum that overwhelmingly voted for it. There was no referendum in Kosovo, except the one in the 90s which the whole world rejected except Albania. Please, get your facts right before making a fool of yourself.

  13. My friend in Kosovo, a political analyst, assured me that Brnabic, a Western educated Serbian 'liberal' would be the same as the rest of the Belgrade regime, at least as far as a free and independent Kosovo was concerned. About Kosovo and Serbia, my friend is always correct. She is not our friend or ally. And yes, the hypocrisy of sending men to fight with the Putin-rebels is obvious.

  14. Kosovo was annexed by YU in 1913 during the genocide of serbs against albanians, and again after WWII in 1943 from Albania, and yet Albania did not enter Kosovo to separate it or kill serbians like Russia did in Ukraine. Kosovo did a referendum in 1992 for independence, and had protests in 60s and 80s to use the right of declaring a republic, a right granted by YU 1974 constition, that's why it had an equal seat at tge federal parliament.

    True, Kosovo should not be a country but part of Albania, but since it has declared a republic, Kosovo now needs to hold another referendum on the matter of joining back with Albania.

    Crimea was annexed by russians killing ukranians and no referendum, after years of its independence from USSR, which was accepted by Russia long time ago, and no UN intervention. Completely illegal aggression.

  16. If Serbia supports Ukrainian territorial integrity, then it questions Russia's borders. Mr. Putin assured us that Crimea was acquired legally.
    If Serbia supports Ukraine how come Serbian citizens are not fighting in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, but against them?
    How come none of these "freedom fighters" is not even accused for a crime yet?
