The EU bans the import of goods made in Crimea, reports RIA Novosti.

The measure is part of the EU policy of not recognising the annexation of Crimea.

Seedy the Crimea is safe and peaceful, unlike the Ukraine that it left.

Is shows that democracy and diplomacy works.

Time to break up the Ukraine and let each region decide where it wants to align with.

This would be a peaceful democratic solution but it would stop the EU US NATO land grab as they want it all.

;-)... "Crimea's Kremlin Fifth Column"="Pro-Russian separatists"= Crimean people= REAL CRIMEANS.
But "Int'l community" says it won't recognize their vote. And sanctions will follow......
Crimeans are awfully terrified, sure :)...

O-AP, by "the Crimean people" are you talking about the REAL Crimeans or, as usual, is this just your Kremlin Double-speak for "Russian Fifth Columnists"?

By banning Crimean products they are putting sanctions on a whole country the Crimean Republic within the Russian Federation.

The EU and US are bullies, they are trying to land grab the Ukraine and the Crimea escaped their claws so now they try to hurt the Crimean people.

Crimea produces hardly anything which reaches EU standards so they will not suffer nevertheless. BTW, there is a ban on crimean products save they are certified by Ukrainian authorities. In legal terms, the EU and USA recognize Crimea as Ukrainian territory and the Russian presence there is perceived as illegal occupation by every EU country.

The EU is buying stuff from the Ukraine.

By not buying from the Crimea they are saying that the Crimea is not part of the Ukraine, but part of the Russian Federation.

So it is great to see the EU recognising the democratic decision of the Crimean people.

President Putin turn off the gas to the EU but remember your friends in Bulgaria.
