Ukraine Defense Ministry spokesman Lt. Col. Alexei Mazepa said Russian sailors pulled the anti-submarine vessel Ochakov out of a naval junkyard and sank it in the straits that connect the Black Sea with a body of water known as Donuzlav Lake. He said the act was intended to prevent Ukrainian navy ships from leaving a nearby base and going to sea.Meanwhile, the Crimean parliament has green lighted a referendum asking the locals if they would like to become part of Russia:
Lawmakers in Crimea voted today for this mostly Russian enclave to become part of Russia and moved up a referendum to decide the matter to March 16.... When Russian President Vladimir Putin was asked two days ago about Russia annexing Crimea, he told reporters: “Only the people who live in a certain territory have the right to decide their own future.”I especially like that last bit from Pres. Putin. If he's so keen on self-determination, why doesn't he let the Chechens and Dagestanis vote on whether or not they want to remain part of mother Russia?
By any chance was Putin a Corporal during his time with the KGB?
