Russia saved Crimea from war by annexing the peninsula

Russia saved Crimea from war by annexing the peninsula. Since the annexation, Crimea has been developing faster than ever.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation took place in February 2014, almost two months before the pro-Russian protests in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts escalated into an armed separatist insurgency (bbc.in/1FfegIv), . // Despite the fact that the Russian government has poured enormous amounts of money in subsidies into the region, the Russian-annexed peninsula continues to deal with energy shortages (bit.ly/1UCSh98), , while Crimeans also feel the spiraling cost of food and services acutely (bit.ly/1pZgCZE), .
