UK's hypocritical view on Ukraine

Published 07/03/2014

PRESUMABLY, all unionists in Northern Ireland will stand full square behind the actions taken by Russia in relation to Ukraine.

Why would they not support the sending of troops into a country to protect a minority population that feels strong cultural and political ties to the mother country? In spite of the obvious parallels, Britain is once again displaying a blind side in relation to Ireland, while claiming the high moral ground in relation to other nations which adopt similar policies to the British.
