Only today have I learned that they, for the most part, don’t even know how to pronounce “Crimea” (pronounced “Krim”, or, if we are to use the established goddamn American transliteration, “Krimya”, with the first vowel being an “i”, not an “ay”). And it’s really getting on my nerves (at least Stewart pronounced “Crimineans” somewhat right). As for my opinions on the matter, I fully support the totally illegal, but perfectly fair, Russian attempt at separating Crimea from Ookrayeena. If the Crimean people support joining Russia, they should do so.
