      I heard the European Central Bank was buying Ukie bonds for cash and that’s what keeps them afloat. That’s how they pay for the army.

    Echoes of the Argentine claims to the Falkland Islands, the main difference being that the Crimea was already inhabited when taken over by the Russian Empire.

      Very similar. In 2013 the Falklands had a referendum, where 99.8% voted for British rule. It’s Crimea all over.
