Response to article by Dmitry Orlov citing rationality in Putin’s Crimean takeover.

About 110 years ago, my grandparents came to the USA as refugees from pogroms in the Ukraine.  While agreeing with some points that Orlov makes, I cannot forget that active, virulent anti-semitism still exists in the Ukraine and Russia.

As bigotry and injustice propel much of the Right in the USA, so too is social injustice rampant in Russia.  I do not have trust in Putin’s actions until he decries and rejects social injustice.  No military/political actions have value until they are commensurate with manifest support of human dignity.
