You know Crimea, right?
It is located right between Borat and the Eiffel Tower.
You may have also noticed recently that Russians have decided to occupy and annex Crimea.
But did you know 150 years ago there was a war over Crimea?
Shockingly, this war included the Russians and the Western powers of Britain and France. It also included the Ottoman Empire and the Kingdom of Sardinia.
And while the drab Russian forces are in Crimea today, let us remember a time when authoritarian occupying forces had some style.
So the end of the story is: Russia, get your act together.
