No question the original inhabitants of Crimea are the Tatars – whose rights will be fully protected in a new Crimea. They had not achieved their self-determination for the same reason Native Americans also did not. Yet much more alarming in the whole case is how the West once again conveniently, selectively manipulates the arbitrary carving of colonized lands – the key reason of ongoing, intractable geopolitical disasters. South Sudan’s independence was obsessively fought for by Washington – helped by Hollywood clones of the Clooney variety. The pretext was to correct an arbitrary colonial carving. So that applies to Sudan, but it does not apply to Crimea.

Thomas Jefferson’s “insurgents” had the right to rebel against the British, but Crimeans cannot rebel against what most view as an illegal, fascist-laden, putschist regime in Kiev.

  1. Crimean Tatar language likely to become regional language in Crimea

    Simferopol – Crimean Prime Minister Anatoliy Mohyliov has said that the Crimean Tatar language will be declared a regional language in the autonomy.

    “Judging by the population of Crimean Tatars in Crimea, the Crimean Tatar language will most likely be declared a regional language in the autonomy,” Mohyliov said in Simferopol on Wednesday, following a special sitting of the Crimean parliament, which instructed the Crimean government to draw up and submit by October 10, 2012 its proposals on the implementation of the law of Ukraine on the principles of the state language policy in the autonomy.

    “The Council of Ministers of Crimea jointly with the deputies of the Supreme Council of Crimea will work to implement the law on the territory of Crimea,” he said.
