Reconstruction of the events in the Kerch Strait

by The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine (Генеральная прокуратура Украины

This happened a few years ago. You will have to read the titles awfully fast, but this is a very interesting video.


Is Russia Annexing The Azov Sea?

This is also extremely interesting. What is notable is the seaport of Mariupol, located in one of "Russia's" newest territories.

Those two territories have a river called Donets. It goes right through those two territories, hooking up with the Don River, and goes down to the Azov Sea. I don't think it is fully navigable.

In the video, the issue of the 12-mile limit is extremely interesting. There can be a lot of mischief down there. Perhaps this is why Putin is bothering with the Donbas area. He's not doing any of that for humanitarian reasons, at all.

Back then many Ukrainians sided with the Germans rather than support the Soviet Union. At least for awhile. Not surprised they are resistant to getting gobbled up again.
