Ukraine cri­sis con­tin­ues

SP's MAI - - ROUND-UP 2014 -

The cri­sis be­gan ear­lier this year after Rus­sia an­nexed the Crimean penin­sula, which was a part of Ukraine fol­low­ing a revo­lu­tion in the erst­while Soviet Repub­lic. Rus­sia’s move was widely con­demned by world pow­ers who termed Rus­sia’s mil­i­tary in­ter­ven­tion and support to rebels in Ukraine as an at­tack on the coun­try’s sovereignty. As a re­sult, Rus­sia was sus­pended from the G-8 group of coun­tries.
