  1. Good point on the alleged “annexation” of Crimea. I started to question that term, even though it is pervasively used by everyone. It has an authoritarian tone to it, when the process seemed to indicate a highly Democratic model of secession. So, I agree it is more correct to say Crimea seceded from the Ukraine after the government became corrupt, and so much so, that even after Ukraine was considered an “aspiring member” the IMF refused to deliver the first 1 billion dollar payment to the country due to what it termed “Rampant Corruption”. Crimea, Seceded from Ukraine, it was not annexed by Russia, but accepted.
    It was a good decision by Crimea, not a unilateral annexation by an authoritarian power using military force.
