The conflict over Crimea continues after Russian President Vladimir Putin declared the annexation of Crimea. Pro-Russian forces have since stormed a Ukrainian navy base located in Crimea.
Crimea has belonged to the Ukraine in recent times, but with the upset of Ukraine’s leadership and displacement of President Viktor Yanukovych, there’s been conflict regarding what exactly happens to the contested peninsula. Currently, demographics indicate there are more Russians than Ukrainians residing in Crimea and many Russian-owned properties.

Media coverage of the crisis has been varied depending on who and where you’re getting it. Vladimir Putin has often been a Daily Show mocked, Super Bowl ring-stealing villain from a country that seems to produce most of James Bond’s greatest adversaries.
