Mark sleboda made these other two look foolish. Even if nothing happened in Crimea. There will still be other reasons to give those sanctions.

I have a problem when Issues like this are discussed and people who live in the place of subject matter are not involved, I think discussions become far from reality.

Crimean was democratically done which even surprises the West. The West are secretly amased by the way Putin has restored the image of Russia in the corridor of power which they wanted Russia out of since 1991.

The real question is what have Ukraine gained going west.. They're more beggars and corrupt than imagine. Crimea is better off than the entire Ukraine. Sleboda is on point... the two other numbskull are just rambling rubbish.

The Ukraine would return to Russia if fair elections were allowed and US together with NATO terrorists were sent home. Thanks Putin for standing up to the hypocrisy of America and the 5 eyes.

Mark Sleboda makes these two guests look totally outdated in the world of now where democracy rules: first the Russian military has been in Crimea for 500 years and secondly before the Maidan time Russia was paying the bill to keep their military in Crimea plus Crimea was Russia till a while ago( 1954).
Now where will the Russian MP run to when Kiev Finally goes back to Russia in the soon to come period?.
Putin took Crimea back with Crimeans hence Story closed forever!.

I liked the first guy saying for example "the salaries didn't increase as much as expected"..."there are only Russian tourists" ... and my favorite "they are not in a war zone but isolated"!!! . So he is presenting positive things as if they are negative, He could also have said "the bridge is not as pretty as it could it been", "the new airport is not as big as..." and so on. Ridiculous way to make a case.
