Money is not the only factor. Many of the elderly vote because they used to be Russian, they hated being part of Ukraine ever since the USSR fell.



I can agree with that. Now I just have to hope that South Florida doesn't decide to have a vote to be part of Cuba or S. California to be part of Mexico. Of course as far as Crimea goes I don't think there is a lot of doubt about the outcome.

I must to remind you that Russia did not invade Ukraine or Crimea........ it was there already, legally and under the official leasing contract for the bases.

I will agree that they were already there but the did send in 30,000 troops or so that were not already there.
Sorry but officially was announced that there were only 16.000 troops stationed on the bases.

As Mark said, most Crimean people were Russian speakers and many had Russian passports, despite that the Ukrainian Constitution do not permit Dual Nationality!
