The Washington Post Admits Crimeans Are Happy Russians

The Washington Post – an inveterate keystone of US foreign policy propaganda – made a surprising admission recently. The people of Crimea – allegedly “annexed” by the Russian Federation – are vastly satisfied under Moscow’s governance.

The Washington Post article titled, “Six years and $20 billion in Russian investment later, Crimeans are happy with Russian annexation,” attempts in every way to misrepresent, and deny the cause and obvious implications of the polling data presented – but still admits:

…the annexation was popular, especially among Crimea’s large population of older ethnic Russians. More than five years later, and billions of rubles of investment later, it remains popular.

The polling data was collected by the Levada Center – which the Washington Post calls, “Russia’s most reliable polling company.” The Washington Post conveniently omits that the Levada Center has been funded by the US State Department via the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and regularly works with the Western media to generate data to support Washington and London’s various anti-Russian narratives – which is likely why the Washington Post determines it is so “reliable.”

Yet even this US-funded front had to admit that from 2014 when Crimea rejoined Russia, up to and including today, the peninsula’s Russian administration was and remains highly popular.

Et Tu, Tony Cartalucci?!?

NO, Russia did not ANNEX Crimea; post the US sponsored-putsch in Ukraine, putting Poroshenko into power Obama admits that US brokered a deal in support of regime change in Ukraine, the Crimeans did two things.

First, the Crimeans held a well-supervised,voted-upon referendum, where they were asked if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, post-putsch, or petition Russia to join the Russian Federation; in an overwhelming vote, they chose the later.

Tony, Russia did not annex Crimea; please, you're better than this!!!
