I was there in the 1980's.
It is a very pretty city.
I was impressed because
it was the headquarters for
the Russian NAVY.
I can only imagine if our Navy base town
decided to become a confederate state today.
We should mind our own business. We have
plenty of our own problems right here.
The Black Sea Fleet
is a large operational-strategic
sub-unit of the Russian (and formerly Soviet) Navy,
operating in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea
since the late 18th century. Its ships are based in
various harbors of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov,
while its aviation and infrastructure is based in various
locations in Crimea, Russia and Krasnodar Krai, Russia.

The story about the flyers making Jews register , was denied. Said it was to stir things up. BUT
the thought was there and that is sin enough. I would get the heck out of the Ukraine.
