Last month, all that the government of Ukraine had to face was the decision to accept financial assistance from either Russia or the European Union. This month, a new Ukranian government is faced with Russian troops occupying Crimea on the pretext of protecting Russian nationals and Russian language speakers in the province. And just this week, the Crimean regional government announced a referendum on whether the province would remain part of Ukraine or become part of Russia.
How and why did this happen?
