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.
- Hillary Clinton's campaign manager accused Russia of backing a leak of Democratic party emails to secretly help Trump's presidential chances.
- Russia won't be banned from the Rio Olympics but its athletes need to pass new anti-doping tests to compete, the IOC ruled.
- ISIS has claimed responsibility for a bombing that killed at least 80 people in Afghanistan Saturday.
