Why I Still Don’t Think Russia Wants to Annex the Crimea

Opinion on Ukrainian-Russia Conflict in Crimea
[Be sure to use back button to return to Vegas Valley.]

In Moscow's Shadows

RussiansCrimea It’s a risky thing, making such predictions in the middle of a fast-changing and frankly confusing situation, when we have reportedly a couple of thousand troops being airlifted into the peninsula and local premier Aksenov claiming control over all forces in the area (does he mean Russian ones too? I very much doubt it, or if he thinks he controls them then I imagine it means “he controls them so long as he happens to be telling them to do what Moscow wants them to do”). Nonetheless, let me stick out my neck and say why, excitable headlines notwithstanding, I don’t think Russia is about to annex the Crimea, let alone occupy eastern Ukraine.

1. Russia already ‘has’ Crimea in the ways that matter to it.Crimea has considerable autonomy, the Black Sea Fleet presence is guaranteed by treaty until 2042 if I remember correctly, and there is massive political…

What is the Vegas Valley?
Vegas Valley is:
Las Vegas’ newest alternative weekly.  Covering voices of local, state, national and international news and events. Exploration of interesting, mainstream topics and exposes into journalism’s finest discoveries, fact finding and truths. Providing research questions and answers to some of life’s most simplest uncertainties. Covering subjects we can all benefit from and profit from. Venturing into the realms of social, economic, political and religious issues and soliciting diverse opinions and commentary.  Stirring up and studying a wide range of concerns close to us here in the Valley and across the land. Sometimes when we talk about local issues and problems we find they are not all local in nature, but quite common and troublesome nationally or even globally. We search for the solutions to our problems and one of the best ways to do that is like Lou, an Italian New Yorker who was for a brief time my boss in the car business, was fond of saying, “Two minds are always better than one.” At the Vegas Valley the meeting of minds from around the world can help us discuss, debate and defeat our problems and solve them by helping us create solutions.

Education is food for the mind. The more we learn the better we think. The better we think the better we are able to solve our problems and invent new technologies that enhance our future. The founder, publisher, editor, author, researcher and photographer of Vegas Valley is a one-man band that digs into a world of hidden treasures while researching and uncovering topics for writing projects at hand. One of the benefits of this publication will be sharing such findings, hopefully in an interesting manner.

This is not a catch-all publication, detailing every bit of local news and events, but rather an alternative publication that focuses on complimenting existing news sources with our own independent input.  Our contribution is intended to be as original as possible with our content being exclusive.  Many publications are hindered from reporting the truth and providing balanced media because most publications are supported by advertisement and that advertisement tends to be dominate over publication articles. In other words, a writer, editor or publication can’t be too critical and is indeed limited in fear of losing advertisement revenue by saying negative things about the advertiser–and that makes sense. Vegas Valley doesn’t have that problem because we are dependent on no one, being a truly independent news & events publication. Any advertisement seen on this site is not ours but the source providing the coverage, such as the Associated Press, YouTube or WordPress which pays for the services we use for free.

Hopefully, we’ll discuss topics that everyone can find something that interests them enough to participate in the Campfire Forum.
