The return of Soviet Crimea!

May 27, 2010

Interfax-Ukraine Simferopol, May 26 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Crimean parliament has introduced amendments to the Constitution of the autonomy, according to which the name of the Crimean parliament when used in text in the Russian language, is changed from the Verkhovna Rada (the Supreme Council as spelled in Ukrainian) of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea to the Verkhovny Soviet (the Supreme Council as spelled in Russian) of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

This decision was supported by 76 out of 94 members of the Crimean council registered for voting on Wednesday, May 26. Four members voted against.

 

Yeh, OK dear readers, not as dramatic as it sounds…….RADA and Soviet mean the same thing just one is a Ukrainian word and the other Russian.

I didn’t mean to infer that the communists had taken over Crimea in a coup……well OK may be I did mean to infer it just so you would read this and think it was a world turning event.
