Putin recently disclosed the details behind Russia’s Crimea takeover.
During the Sochi Olympics, Putin held an all-night meeting about Crimea, the meeting ended at 7 am.
Russia had a network of informers all over Crimea, which compares with a network of informers in Hue, South Vietnam, which enabled the North Vietnamese to snatch up and execute 1,000 important people in one night in 1968.
This documentary is short and to the point, well worth watching. The inner workings of Russia, the FSB and how they took over Crimea. It never was a popular uprising. Russia lied.
