  •  Russia's annexation of Crimea is a done deal. (5+ / 0-)

    Crimea has never been a part of Ukraine except since 1954, so they simply don't have the sort of ties to Ukraine that the rest of the country does. Since it will peel off many pro-Russian voters, this will solidify the current pro-western government in power in the next elections. And it will drive Ukraine into the arms of NATO, but Putin won't have to worry about them kicking him out of their base in Crimea.
