But then again you likely aren't gonna change the minds of the creators, so you can complain about the website's decisions, but in the end, you get what you are given.
If you want to support Ukraine, send some money to a relief charity there. It isn't helpful to argue whether a quiz site should meaninglessly change their maps.
There was an emergency situation in Kosovo. The dictatorial regime of Milosevic had launched a widespread campaign against the Kosovan population. Kosovans were not safe under Yugoslavian control. Milosevic had already commited crimes against humanity and attempted genocide against the Bosnian and was doing it again to the Kosovans.
None of this applies to Crimea as part of Ukraine. It is under Russian occupation that the indigenous Crimean Tatar population have been persecuted, people have been forced disappearances without explanation and many other human rights abuses.
The Russian occupation of Crimea has al ot of parallels with Nazi Germany's occupation of Sudetenland. And just how Nazi Germany occupied the rest of Czechislovakia at a later time, Putin's regime returns to try and take over the rest of Ukraine.
Sevastopol is not the only place in Russia that touches the Black Sea, but it is their only major warm water naval base. They have others that are much smaller.
De facto it is currently a part of Russia and has been since 2014, as abominable as Putin and his regime are and as deplorable as all those who defend, excuse, or support them continue to be.
JetPunk seems to favor de facto sovereignty above those other things. Which is fine. Reality is not what you wish it to be and I was never one of those people who was fine with lying if I felt it suited some greater purpose or because I felt people were too stupid to hear the truth and make sense of it, even though many of the events of the past decade have me repeatedly revising my opinion of global intellect downward.
