Mapwise, there might be more incentive for Russia to get land access from the north to Crimea, though I think they have access from the sochi area of the NE black sea. But why is this a Russian priority now? Other things besides POTUS have changed, what do you think is the differentiating factor? Well the facial hair is different. Though looking at a map of languages in Ukraine, it's mostly Ukrainian, with Crimea and a bit of the southeast majority Russian. TBH I didn't realize Ukranian was different from Russian linguistically. Assumed it was different dialects but same language. The center of power there switched from Kiev to Moscow after the Mongols went through, and then bounced from Muscovy to St Petersburg to Moscow, as far as I know. But Kiev and Moscow have been linked politically more often than not the last 7 centuries, haven't they? Which is not to say Putin should take Kiev... Give Trudeau a break, his hair is awesome. Sure his cossacks ran over that one first nations elder, but she was a white supremicist anyway and had it coming. Her fault for throwing in with her upper class trucker overlords. That bit about being trampled is fake news. Even Fox "news" says so. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
