Default Crimea murals

Crimea has many funny and interesting building murals after the events of 2014.

Strong, muscular Putin pulls out Crimeans from the swamp Ukraine where they were drowning


Russian soldier plays hockey lol with puck centered on Crimea. "Happy Russia Day [June 12th]. 2014 taking back our own."

Russian police van and car with Russian number plates already instead of Ukrainian, nearby, as if to underscore...

"Crimea and Russia, together forever"


Self-explanatory lol


Putin in Navy uniform walks through barley field with Kremlin in background and Russian combat jets in the sky leaving exhaust trails in colors of Russian flag, "Welcome back to ancestral haven!"


This one I like, Gagarin, and all the accomplishments of Russians, the Olympic rings, etc. "Mistake corrected!" mistake being us giving up Crimea all those years ago


That part that shows a Russian soldier handing a cat to a Crimean boy

is based on an iconic photo

and it is used in other murals too


Not all murals are political.

This beautiful one shows the Crow's Nest castle


Enjoy.

Other funny Crimea photos: on New Year, their local Ded Moroz (Santa Claus for you Westerners hehe) rode out to meet children in Yalta on a Russian Marines APC complete with national Tricolor and Russian Navy flags and painted with "polite Ded Moroz" insignia ("polite" referring to the "polite men", the Russian troops who secured the Crimea back in March)


haha

Meanwhile our national Ded Moroz also visited Crimea in December


He opened two dozen Ded Moroz mail offices, with drop boxes now available in Simferopol, Alushta, Yalta, Saki, Yevpatoria, Feodossia, Kerch and Sevastopol

service for them is year round.

Many little Crimeans began writing to Ded Moroz right away

Also, a new special rapid deployment unit has been formed out of former Ukrainian special forces personnel in Crimea who defected to pro-Russian forces in March. It will be known as spetsnaz unit Priboi ("High Tide")

Russia has about three times as many people as Ukraine - they have fewer people than NATO and, as we see, Putin never attacks a NATO country.

NATO never attacks Russia either, not for Georgia, whom they promised protection before 2008; not for Ukraine either.

Why do you think that is, Nick?

NATO counties implement sanctions against Russia while Ukraine implemented Maidan. NATO countries are far more harmonious and peace-loving than Putin and therefore they, unlike Putin, avoid military action. When Putin implemented military action and attacked Ukraine it led to thousands of deaths on both sides of the conflict. NATO wish to avoid sucn an outcome.

I notice you didn't put 'than Putin' in bold. If you go back to the quote, you'll notice that you put the bit about peace-loving and harmonious in bold, and you'll see that you didn't put 'than Putin' in bold.

You're the one who has frequently spoken of how much violence there is in Russia, and what's more, you've told us that Putin was more macho in every way than Lukashenko, whom you also considered macho.

So, I'm a bit confused - can you state once and for all, are NATO countries, or are they not, far more peace-loving than Putin?

They are not. They just use others, like Islamic extremists or Ukrainian nationalists or Israeli Zionists, to do their dirty work for them. More cowardly approach, but saves own lives, I will grant you that.

Indeed. Reminds me, in some ways, of Soviet street murals


although those were actual mosaics, not graffiti. But the style is very similar
