Or mercenaries. But technically, Crimea is part of Russia now. Russian troops use Russian insignia.

This is Russias mess, (now officially) get to cleaning! This sort of thing is just because they can be a douches..

Well yes. But stealing the Ukrainian equipment wouldn't carry the same amount of 'in your face'. I mean blockading the Ukrainian fleet by sinking a blockship is pretty damn douchebaggery.
"We want you to leave! But no you can't leave unless you pass under the yoke and give us your stuff after we have stolen your land. Oh and by the way, you have to leave your homes as well."
I'm not surprised a significant amount of the soldiers and sailors might chose to stay. And given their lack of other options taking a job in Crimea (possibly even as a soldier). It is their home after all (wives and children would certainly pull in the direction of staying). I can imagine a lot of them having been born there as well. But that doesn't mean they are wholly supportive of the actions that have led them to take that choice.

That's not a nice way to treat them. Regardless of the political maneuvers and how you might think the politicians are in Kiev. The state of Ukraine is just as real as it has been the past 24 years. The Ukrainian Army is also just as real. The political situation is just that, political. Stealing the stuff the Ukrainian Army and Fleet has had in Crimea is... well it is blatant theft. And it is clear that it was the intention from the beginning, otherwise the fleet wouldn't have been blocked in.

No, you don't have to. You can be with the communists and fight for a new world.

Or you can take your life into your own hands. No gods, no masters. Find your local communist, and open his skull with a rock.

It's the only answer. Destroy the diseased ones.

I didn't realise Putin had an account on these forums.

10-20% is quite realistic number, consistent with several Krim and Sevastopol sources, even reports from ukrainian officers going back to Ukraine. Majority of soldiers stationed in Krim will serve in Russian army.

But hey just continue to listen bs coming from Kiev. Krim peoples forced by arms to vote on referendum and such bs.
