    probably make up somewhere around 40% to 45% of the Crimean population.  Most in the media have been going by the 2001 census there(when the number was 37%), ignoring population trends.

    Many also make the mistake of automatically equating ethnic Russian Ukrainians as pro-Putin or wanting to be a part of Russia, even though that is clearly not the case.
