This was a sort of prequel for Russia’s takeover of Crimea. Except Hitler’s claims in Czechoslovakia were actually more legitimate than Putin’s in Russia, which doesn’t make it right. However, it shows just how bad Russia’s takeover of Crimea actually is. At least some of Czechoslovakia was historically German speaking, whereas Crimea only became Russian speaking recently.
