Did Russia really invade Crimea?

Right after it was announced that Crimea voted to join Russia, “The White House and Western governments rejected the referendum." Did you catch that? 97 percent of Crimeans voted for Russia, but New World Order agents rejected it any way!

 

…by Jonas E. Alexis

 

The argument that “Russia invaded Crimea” should still make one laugh because it is so pathetic. Again, it is like saying that the United States invaded California or Texas. Last February, my dear friend Mark Dankof debated an “independent scholar” by the name of Peter Sinnott on Press TV, and one could easily see that Sinnott was getting his butt kicked.

During the entire debate Sinnott kept positing a plethora of spurious statements and groundless accusations against Russia and indeed Vladimir Putin. “Russia,” Sinnott asserted, “has been aggressive when they basically invaded and annexed Crimea and they are still aggressive in Eastern Eukraine.”

Is Sinnott really an “independent scholar,” or has the New World Order ideology poisoned his mind and clouded his moral and political judgement? Will a serious independent scholar advance the fallacious argument that Russia invaded Crimea? Hasn’t Crimea been a part of Russia from time immemorial?

Dankof destroyed Sinnott’s entire argument by saying that

“As far as Crimea is concerned, the Crimeans understood that they didn’t want to be governed by this illegitimate regime in Kiev. They voted by something like 98 percent in the legitimate referendum.”

Party is over. Even Zionist outlets such as USA Today reported that “Crimea’s election committee said that 97% of voters backed a union between the largely ethnic-Russian peninsula and the huge neighboring country.”[1]

Reuters, of all places, declared that the vast majority of Crimeans voted in order to “quit Ukraine for Russia.” In a similar vein, the Washington Post, another Zionist outlet, did not refute the claim that Crimeans overwhelmingly voted for Russia.[2] National Public Radio, Bloomberg, the Irish Times, the Baltimore Sun, and even PBS agreed with the polls that Crimeans wanted to connect with Russia.[3]

So, where did Sinnott get the dumb idea that Russia invaded Crimea? Did he get it through exhaustive research and a convergence of evidence? Or was he reproducing what New World Order agents have been saying from eternity to eternity?

Obviously Sinnott is just regurgitating what he has been told to believe. He cannot think straight because he is intellectually living in a system which forbids clear judgment. Right after it was announced that Crimea voted to join Russia, “The White House and Western governments rejected the referendum,” said the Washington Post.[4] Did you catch that? 97 percent of Crimeans voted for Russia, but New World Order agents rejected it any way!

Here we are confronted with a fundamental issue: can these people really tell us that they are interested in democracy and freedom? Do you see why decent Americans are overwhelmingly rejecting this essentially diabolical ideology and are opting for something else? Do you see why reasonable and sensible people are saying enough is enough?

    I agree with VT on many things, but not this. The Crimean Tatars & the ancient Germanic population need to be brought back to Crimea and all ethnic Russians who were settled there need to abstain from the referendum. Otherwise it will be considered invalid.

      Ot is an Occupation that started with Catherine the Great’s resettlement of Central Germans (not to be confused with the then-extant ancient Germanics) and reached it’s zenith with the resettlement of ethnic Russian during the rule of the USSR. Another classic example of what Chairman Mao and the Marxist-Leninist-Maoists termed as Russian Social Imperialism. Until that is reversed Russia will remain an invader.

      On this note I will urge VT readers to acquaint themselves with the term and perhaps a read-up about USSR from Chinese sources from around the time of the Cultural revolution. Then consider this: the Saami (Lapp) of Scandinavia and Karelia (Russian Federation) look upon China as “their” super-power. To add further spice, the Finno-Ugric people (who are mainly Sunni Muslim like the Mari) in the Russian Federation, perceive Finland as their protector.

      Krym was acquired by Russia believe in 1771, no doubt as a result of Russia v. Turkey war, which
      raged believe since 1767. Such acquisition permitting Russian access to the Black Sea was somehow
      endorsed and agreed upon by both warring sides during the Treaty of Kuchuk/Kainardzhi in 1774.
      Yes, it was during the reign of wild Great Carina Catherina. Krym was then administratively and legally
      entered into the Russian Empire in 1783, yes the same year Treaty of Paris basically established this
      country. Krym was scarcely populated so attracted to Russians. Okrajina, or a border area of Russian
      empire was not.

      Eventual, by the way even by Soviet Standards not legal ,transfer of administration of
      Krym to the Soviet Rep. Ukraine by comrade Khrushchev in 1954 has not changed its Russian population’s adherence to Moskva. In fact during the days of unfortunate demise of a Soviet Union,
      Krymeans held its first Referendum on Dec, 1. 1991 demanding independent status as previously
      neighboring Transnistria and subsequently other former Soviet Republics. . Belovezka Accord and
      Yeltsin specifically, by the advice from US. administration, did not heed Krymeans demand. However,
      newly coined Ukraine agreed that Krym would have somewhat federalized “independent status” and
      Russian Navy (Army) would be permitted to be stationed in Krym to the tune of appx. 20,000 soldiers,
      hardware, planes, ships etc. for the promise to help build the Ukrainian Navy. Well, their 2nd Referendum
      gave Krymeans finally

      @reinhart, You pronounce Crimea (Krym) the way Crimean Tatars in Turkey do. It places you from the region. While I concede to your detailed knowledge, I will disagree on some points. The area was not so sparsely populated then. Many of the Tatars moved to live under the Osmanli (Ottoman), particularly in Sebastopol. Secondly Catherine settled Germans from her part of Germany. People she trusted more than the ethnic Russians, whom she ruled. By the time of the Holodomor genocides (occurring in 1921-22, 1932-33 and 1946-47), the descendants of these Germans, plus those from ancient Visigoth lineages, Greeks and a substantial number of Tatars (who had assimilated ancient Illyrians) were a majority in Crimea. They were forced to leave; many died. Most didn’t return. Their homes are occupied by ethnic Russians. The descendants of those displaced people know the homes of their ancestors.

      Had they been allowed to vote, most likely they would vote a Crimea independent of both Moscow and Kiev.

      Krym as Rossia are local (Russian words) – Catherina encouraged (not forced) German farmers to
      come to today’s areas of Donetsk up to Rostov, maybe to teach local farmers get better yields
      from then very fertile lands (not in Krym) – Visigoths?? – perhaps you mean Norse / Viking tribe of
      Russ – yes, in their time they did reach even Constantinople – “golodomors” were prominent under
      Polish ownership, of today Ukra and Rossia again far up to the North and West from Krym – yes,
      tatars (tartars) were moved from Krym by Stalin, since they have cooperated with Nazi armies and
      occupiers (perhaps remembering German officers great service to the Turks, during 1st. W.W.)

      They are called «Krimgoths» and settled there n 257 AD. They spoke their own independent language called «Crimean Gothic». The 16th century letters of the Flemish diplomat Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq contain the only surviving word list of Crimean Gothic. It was a Germanic language spoken in some isolated regions of the Krim at the time. The 16th century Krim Goths were descendants of Ostrogths who settled there in the 3rd century. According to the legend, the Goths’ original homeland was in Sweden, from where a hunger catastrophe had forced them to seek better conditions further south.

      BTW the original Russians were called «Ros», and they too most likely originally came from Sweden,
      but of course many centuries after the Goths. The name «Ros» has been related to «rowing» (they travelled in ships that were propelled by oars), or alternatively to the color «red», presumably due to the reddish hair and beards that was one of their characteristics. They were traders and mercenaries (Varangians).

      @reinhart After the genocide of the Holodomor, sanctioned by Lenin & commissioned by trotsky and executed by the Cheka, many ethnicities would of course join hands with the enemies of their oppressors. The Tatars were one such group. Tne others were Ukrainians. Even Russian nobility were in Berlin trying to work a deal with NSDP whereby they could reestablish monarchy in Russia. The point is that ethnic Russians were settled there by the Communists in Moscow. Both in the Donetsk, as well as Crimea. hence the term coined by the Maoists: “Russian Social Imperialism” for the practices of the USSR.

      @kaho – You are right Ostrogoths, not Visigoths like I stated in error. [Thank you]. Some still exist, though identifying themselves as Tatar. I read somewhere that they speak their ancient language at home. These are not to confused with the Germans that Catherine settled after the Crimean War.

    Garry, good to hear directly from Crimea! I really enjoyed watching this 2 hrs Russian documentary about Crimea and what happened. Showed it to a friend who got really offended because it upset his world. Sure, some of the dramatisations are a bit propagandistic, but on the whole it is very good. And Crimea is very beautiful. Here’s the link:

    Two things: Right of the Russian people to self determination and the ability of Russia to execute on the will of the people. However! When the Greek Cypriots voted for union with Greece with similar numbers in the ’50s they were not allowed to unite with the motherland by the Brits USA and the rest of the “great powers” Greece was unable to assert the RIGHTS OF THE GREEK PEOPLE for union as Russia dud with Crimea. Immediately thereafter rhe plans were set for the splitting of the island and immigration of turks from deep anatolia to change the demographics.

    That troublesome radiation is never going away. We need to think about survival. The Dark Star set plays the slow hand of death.

    I drove from Kiev to Kursk and found a similar situation at the Russian border.
    People were commuting to jobs in Russia, women and kids were hitchhiking back and forth across the border from villagesbon opposite sides. The border itself for the most part followed a drainage ditch and except for the official crossing point for vehicles, was basically unmarked. Everyone spoke Russian.

    It’s a shame they made such a mess of it all.

    I was in Crimea during the whole time from Maidan to the vote and those little green men that the West said invaded- well those guys were from Sevastopol and were the marines that were stationed there. They had sooo many selfies taken of them with the people of Crimea that it should be in the Guinness Record Book. At the time I lived in a Ukraine/Crimea navy base/village, which was a WWII base that the Nazi’s had overrun during the great war. I heard a Russian General showed up and talked to the Ukraine/Crimea residence guys about switching sides or at least heading back to the mainland without incident. All the soldiers that were from Crimea and those who had permanently lived here went to the Russia military. The others went back home to Ukraine. I saw the the Russian soldiers accompanying the General at the front gate- 1 APC and a truck.This village is made up of X Russian military and pensioners that love Crimea and the vote I’m sure was 100% Russia. I went to the largest town next to here and it was the same scenario for voting – it was like Victory day all over . Why would any citizen in the states give a rats ass if some people vote to go back to Russia from Crimea when most of them couldn’t even find us on the map? Propaganda – that’s why. The West is starting the depopulation of the Pacific Rim with the sabotage and poisoning of the Pacific Ocean – that is the story everyone in the news should be writing- not a little peninsula called Crimea !
