France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius
Since late February, the world has seen Russia sending its troops to Crimea under the pretext of defending Crimea's ethnic Russian community. From what is anybody's guess.

Crimea's "referendum", which should be rather called an utter farce, claimed that over 95% of the Crimean people voted for joining Russia. However, phenomenons such as dead people voting, possibility to vote multiple times in different voting points and voting with Russian passport have been reported. Referendum in the environment of propaganda posters and armed soldiers can never be considered legitimate. Simple math shows that 123% of Crimeans voted, more than there are people in Crimea.

Right now Putin is acting like another well known dictator from the last century. Such aggression cannot be tolerated in our time and in modern world. By urging Russia diplomatically to de-escalate crisis, yet supplying the agressor with modern warships is a double standard and puts France's and Europe's values into question.
