It is reported that about 60% of the population in Crimea (Ukraine) are Russians. My question is: How many percent of the population are Russian citizens?
Noone knows this 100% exactly.
Many people have both Ukranian and Russian passports.
And they will not answer you honestly how many passports do they have.
Russian and Ukrainian governments do not exchange this data between each other.
As mentioned, Russia's policy is to give Russian passports to as more people as possible. Empire buys citizens. And then uses this fact to attack.
I have some friends and also some relatives there.
And as far as I can say, not more then 20% of Crimean people really have Russian citizenship.
But at least 70% support everything Russia do and dislike Ukraine. They are being Russian in their mind. They think that all of their problems are because of independent Ukraine, and they want back to Soviet Union because Russian TV and Media day and night shout out how good it was and how good it would be if USSR was back again. Russia was spending a lot of money to 'hypnotize' Crimean people, Ukrainian security service ignored this fact, and this is the result..

One more new poster from Crimea:
It says: on March 16 we select between this and that.
As lord Churchill said, fascists of the future will call themself antifascists.
