Reference: Russia treacherously attacked the sovereign Ukrainian state in 2014. The Russians, conducted an illegal "referendum" in the Crimea at gunpoint, “receiving” 120% support for annexation, and then they attempted to seize the rest of Ukraine taking advantage of the chaos of the "Russian spring", but were stopped in the Donbas by the strength of volunteers who, with the support of the Ukrainian people, took a stand to defend the country. Now the Russian Federation is trying to keep the occupied Crimea and part of the Donbas under its influence through terror and intimidation. Because of the annexation of the Crimea, the Russian Federation was expelled from the G-8, PACE and made an outcast country.
