Crimea

I dislike Vladimir Putin because he is not a monarchist, not because he is not a democrat. We need to get rid of the ridiculous neoconservative notion that every country on earth should necessarily be a democracy; autocracy seems to be what's natural for Russia. But why shouldn't Crimea be Russian? It was won under Catherine the Great from the Turks and from then on was an integral part of Russia, only transferred to Ukraine by Khrushchev in 1954. It is where Tsar Alexander III died in 1894 and where Nicholas II & Alexandra built their beloved Livadia Palace in 1911. But if Putin were a true traditional Russian patriot he would restore Maria Vladimirovna, Grand Duchess of Russia to the throne of her ancestors. Боже, Царя храни!

As for Western Ukraine, that's Habsburg territory. Long live the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria!

Putin has an unmarried dauther called Ekaterina Vladimirovna. It would be a great match with Grand Duke Georgi Mikhailovitch, a son and an heir of Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna of Russia :)

That marriage would only be worthwhile if Putin agreed to restore the monarchy. In fact the marriage and coronation should occur simultaneously. Although Grand Duke Georgi Mikhailovitch would be marrying down, this could be rectified after several generations of "good" marriages.

President Putin, has little time to think about Dynasty Restoration? He need' to remain Focused on the Stuarts in the world and the snares in the grass.

If his daughter married GD Georgi Mikhailovitch he would restore the monarchy because his daughter would become a tsarina of All Russia. But i think she is not interested because Grand Duke is not in good shape and she is too beautiful:)
