Your interest in Russia-Ukraine page.
Hi Seryo; Your edits at the Russia page were of interest. At present, the Ukraine page version includes mention of the international 2014 Geneva Pact, while the Russia page parallel version is excluding this mention, so I added it on the Russia page version to keep both Pages consistent. As soon as I did it, User:Mo xy felt differently and immediately reverted apparently opposed to it and wanting to exclude it from the Russia page version while including on the Ukraine page version. It seems like it should be mentioned in both places. Could you glance at this. FelixRosch (talk) 14:52, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
- There are different opinions on Geneva Pact significance in relation to annexation. While it's relevant to general crisis, it's unclear whether it affects Crimea. Some say it does (because Crimea belongs to what is defined as internationally recognised borders of Ukraine) - but some say it doesn't, because Crimea topic was not explicitly touched at Geneva talks. Ukrainian section is called "Russian intervention" (i.e. it encompasses not only Crimea, but also Eastern Ukraine unrests), therefore Geneva pacts anyway apply there. Russian section is called "annexation of Crimea" (abeit I think, we should left small amount of text in Russian Federation section and move "Annexation" section to History of Russia (1992–present), to stay in line with form-of-government-based periodization), so aforementioned dispute (does Geneva applies to Crimea or not) arises. I'll give further comment later this day. Bests, Seryo93 (talk) 15:21, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
- Interesting notes. Do you have any thoughts about the idea for adding a new subsection to the Ukraine Page with the possible title of "Continuing Conflict Over Crimea and Clashes in Eastern Ukraine". The current referendum schedules in multiple Eastern Ukraine cities on independence seems to indicate some use here. FelixRosch (talk) 17:35, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
BRD on Ukraine Page
To Seryo93; Upon request from Evergreen, I have initiated a BRD on the issue of the back-and-forth editing on the Ukraine page which you had previously edited. Please note that during the BRD you ought not to make further edits to the subsection on Intervention until Consensus is established following BRD rules. Good editing.

Annexation of Crimea
Hi Seryo, for a month Russian officials denied military infolvement in Crimea before its official annexation by Russia. Sure, Russia still differentiates between between troops and "local sefl defense forces". But now it openly admits military infolvement before the referendum itself. Sending troops without insignia to Crimea was an important part of Russian tactics. Why do you want to delete it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:10, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Millennium of Russia
- @Darkstar1st: This one, for example, dates Russia from 862. Seryo93 (talk) 08:55, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
- @Darkstar1st: Not quite same, but, just like Kievan Rus', encompassed Russia, Ukraine, Belarus (that was my answer that they were single country in the past, both in Kievan Rus' and in the Russian Empire). And Rus. Empire viewed itself as a heir of Kievan Rus'. Hence "Russia", which is derived from Greek Ρωσία (Rus')). Seryo93 (talk) 16:29, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
