News you won’t find in mainstream media:

“It is better to be a Tatar in Crimea than a Russian in Latvia. But Europe prefers to forget about it.”
— Thierry Mariani, Member of the National Assembly of France

Read the full story here.

Brief history reminder:
The Republic of Crimea refused to recognize the new government in Kiev, which came to power through an American-instigated armed coup in February 2014 that toppled the democratically elected government of Ukraine. Crimea and Sevastopol, a city with a special status on the Crimean peninsula, voted for independence from Ukraine and re-joined Russia in a referendum on March 16, 2014. (Crimea had been a part of Russia since the times of the birth of the USA.) The decision was supported by about 97 percent of voters with an 83 percent turnout.
