. Putin Recognizes Parts Of Ukraine As Independent, Prompting Initial US Sanctions: LIVE UPDATES « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Fox News – Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Ukraine is an integral part of Russia historically, arguing it was a mistake for Soviet leaders such as Nikita Khruschev to give the country an independent identity.

“For some reason Khruschev gave Ukraine separate status,” Putin said during remarks at a security council meeting Monday. “Why did we have to be so generous and then give these Republics the right to leave. Madness!”

Putin argued that it was a fact that Ukraine was created by Soviet Russia and Vladimir Lenin, but has now been reduced to a “colony” that is government by foreign powers such as the U.S., who control the government from their Embassy in Kiev.
