I think they will understand that unilateral independence is not internationally illegal but it is tough and takes a good amount of sharing information, reasoning, and convincing with the proposed position as to why it had to be done.
We had oppression since Ottoman Empire retreated and it occurred on our own ancient lands. We were autonomous ever since WW2 and were under Yugoslavia not Serbia. Serbia than made hegemony wars not only on us but everyone else in Yugoslavia such as: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, and then us in Dardania. We endured rape, genocide, torture, and kidnapping civilians whom are still missing today.
Relationships still not good with Serbia whom could not care less of these happenings. I have the impression that given the opportunity Serbs would do all that all over again and without a second thought.
Russians on the other hand populated a foreign country of Ukraine and want to keep it by force. Yet they refer to us and now perhaps want to force similarities between the two countries. So yes, it is a matter to be chuckled.
Now I do not mean to sound too controlling, but please do not Black Friday rush in recognizing Crimea's independence. Take it easy people! One at a time! Wooaah!
