Video recently shot in Crimea shows a marked increase in the movement of Russian military vehicles along the Tavrida highway in the east of the peninsula. The highway links the Crimean Peninsula to mainland Russia via the Kerch bridge, which was built following Moscow’s illegal annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. According to RFE/RL eyewitnesses, the convoy included combat vehicles with multiple rocket-launch systems, along with trucks carrying personnel and military equipment, writes RFERL.

Describing the 2014 events around the Crimean peninsula as an “illegal annexation” is parroting the MSM / fame news narrative.
Crimea, and the city of Sevastopol separately, had autonomous status under the Ukrainian constitution after the breakup of the USSR. When the pro-Western coup took place in 2014, the people living inside these two legal entities undertook an open, transparent referendum to separate from the Ukraine and rejoin Russia.
Such precedent exists in recent international law (Kosovo), and self determination of a people is a key principle enshrined in the UN Charter.
Crimea was not “annexed”. Its decision to reunite with Russia was 100% legally bulletproof, and a rare triumph of actual democracy (not euphemistic American “democracy”) in recent history.
Crimea wasn’t “illegally annexed”.
Ukraine suffered an illegal coup and the people of Crimea voted to join the Russian Federation.
Some people may not like that, but that was the reality of the situation.
