After mentioning that I didn't have a handle on who was doing what in Ukraine because news stories are so conflicted and patently untrustworthy, my fiance sent me the following two videos.

The first is a short primer on Ukraine and the Crimea and helps set the context. (Oops, I forgot to put the first vid in.)

The second is an example of blatant Kremlin sponsored propaganda from talking heads who look just this side of Alan Moore comic book characters. It's from Russia Today, and it's worth noting that my fiance watched their clips regularly for a different perspective on American issues. Take not of the bottom news scroll.
