Ukrainians and Russian do not want there to be any killing. So, while masked armed men walk around Crimea, some of the population are happy. Some are very upset. But people are intimidated.
I know of a beautiful yacht club there. One day, the owner found out that the ownership
had been transferred without his knowledge to friends of the president. Its in court, but nothing will ever come of it.
Things like that are what caused the unrest. Don't believe the propaganda.
A large part of the population is brainwashed and/or does not care.Just like in any country where the media is controlled by the state.
Its all about the oligarchs, including people in power, holding and increasing their wealth.
And I would not say its over. Probably Russia's move will be to make Crimea into an "independent" country controlled by Russia
. There are about 20,000 or so Tatars in Crimea. They are muslim and were all deported by Stalin decades ago, then returned after the fall of the Soviet Union. Their viewpoint is that the Russians stole their country from them. To say they hate the Russians is putting it mildly.
