"Today the only sovereignty in Crimea is Russian sovereignty," he hammered on Tuesday by signing an agreement on the annexation of Crimea to Russia .
"Ukraine did the same thing when leaving the USSR , Kosovo has also , it is a means created by the West. It says Kosovo is a special case , but why? They (the West ) have said anything and now they are hiding ! We must not forget that Russia, powerful countries, national interests and must be respected ! " Putin warned at the Empire.
Putin wanted to send a message to the people of the United States who " voted independence and say that freedom is important." And to question : "Why Crimea not right ? ".
Putin also assured the Ukrainian people , "We do not want you hurt or humiliate you , we have always respected your territorial integrity. do not listen to those who say that after the Crimean we will go further . Crimea has always been Russian , Ukrainian, Tatar .
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been strong despite the threat of sanctions. The man stayed right in his boots inviting the Empire put its own house before giving lessons to others , while recalling the devastating and deadly interventions in Yugoslavia , Afghanistan , Libya, Iraq and now Syria.
