Moscow breaks all its promises

Russia is running roughshod over Ukraine's right to self-determination, the regional paper Ouest France complains: "With the military invasion of Crimea, Russia is violating its own commitments to Ukraine. In 1994, Ukraine relinquished its nuclear weapons. In exchange, Russia, Britain and the US agreed to 'respect Ukraine's independence, sovereignty and existing borders'. However just the opposite is happening today. Russia is respecting neither the independence, nor the sovereignty, nor the borders of Ukraine. The protector has become the aggressor! This referendum has nothing to do with the people's right to self-determination."
