I am not challenging it, but I am curious, what is your justification for showing Crimea as part of Russia? (Of course we all know Russia has de facto control)

Although Russia annexed it, the international community, as well as the UN, recognize it as part of Ukraine. (See UN General Assembly Resolution 68/262).

The UN has recognized Palestine and Jerusalem as independent from the immigrants forever too, but it's a ban hammer subject around here.

We don't ban people from expressing their opinions, where would you get that idea? I personally support statehood for Palestine and Ukrainian ownership of Crimea. But my personal beliefs don't change the de-facto reality of the situation.

I appreciate that the issue of Crimea is a touchy subject but I don't think the Russians were completely wrong to invade the region. I think the Western media wanted to make a massive deal of something that could be taken against Russians because it generates more publicity. I'm not trying to imply that Russia did the right thing but their actions were not completely unjustified: 60+% of the population is Russian and a referendum took place with 91% of Crimean residents calling it legitimate. Although this figure almost certainly isn't reliable, the people generally are happy to be part of Russia and most who are not have already left the region. NB: I may be a little bit biased as I myself am half-Russian.

I fully agree with everything you wrote. How the Crimea became (again) a part of Russia has to be criticised. That it is a part of Russia is less dramatic at least when you are not entirly innocent about the history and strategic importance of this territory (in particular since 1945). But the western world did not like the short period from 1945-1991 when the west was not able to invade Russia whenever they thought its a fun trip...

By that logic Germany was right to take Austria in 1936.

@RomanD The "Anschluss" happened in 1938 not in 1936. And yes, it did make absolute sense for Austria to become a part of Germany back then. Austria had been a German state throughout its existence and it was only in 1866 that the Austrian Habsburg Empire and Germany went different ways because of the Austro-Prussian War. There were even attempts and large support to unify Germany and Austria directly after WW1 when both countries lost their monarchies but it wasn't allowed by the Allies. In 1938 there was still large support for this unification in both countries so why wouldn't it make sense ?

The referendum results were very openly forged, Ethnicity does not imply right to invade, and the mere fact, that "people who are not happy" have to leave their home, should show, that this was a hostile take over, not a reunification.

@Usrnetc.
Your take is historically wrong. Austria was never a German state, especially not several decades, before Germany was founded.

There was a strong support for the Anschluss initially, but as soon as Austrian Nazis started to murder opposition politicians, the public opinion grew against it, and in 1938, the majority was opposed to it. That's why the nazis scrapped a planned referendum on the issue, they knew, they would have humilitated themself in the home of the Führer.

Just as in Crimea, the Nazis used Ethnic nationalism to take over, then silence the opposition to manufacture some kind of artificial consent for the Global Press.

Crimean Tatars, who are undergoing ethnic cleansing, would strongly disagree. As stated above, ethnicity does not give a country to right to invade another country. The whole point of this policy is to prevent countries like Germany or (in particular) Russia from being able to push around their smaller neighbors without consequence. That was the exact defense that the Nazis used to justify the annexation of Czechia and Poland. The most ironic bit is that Crimea was gifted to Ukraine by Khrushchev as a sign of goodwill. The only reason Putin illegally took it back was to push back against Ukraine's sovereign aspirations toward the West and because the Russian lease on Sevastopol was ending soon.

As said, the concrete actions which happened 2014 should be critisised -- as they should be critisised everytime a state violates international law! But people avoid the more fundamental question whether the geographical status quo is actually an issue. I mean, consider it is 1991 and the Soviot Union is dissolving and it has to be decided of which new state Crimea should be part of: what is your answer? Do you think the vast Russian majority at the Crimea has been asked back in 1991? If your answer back in 1991 would have been Russia, what changed since 1991 that you would not deviate from that decision?

@TheLastFish There was a referendum in 1991 on Ukrainian independence and 54% of Crimea and 57% of Sevastopol voted in support of independence. Check it out for yourself. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_Ukrainian_independence_referendum

As a Crimean, the Russian occupation was absolutely abhorrent to me because we went from living in a corrupt oligarchy that's trying to improve itself to a corrupt oligarchy trying to move towards becoming a giant North Korea. So much for that "will of the people" 🙄
