Everyone wants to understand world events but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start and it can be a chore to try and catch up by yourself from somewhere in the middle. So that you’ll be able to converse intelligently with that Ukrainian or Russian girl or guy that you meet this weekend over Vodka and dried fish, I’ve pulled this video that will educate you in just a few minutes. It’s entertaining, fast moving, and just generally great. The video does, however, stop at March 4th. Russia has since taken over Crimea (which you’re about to learn about if you’re not already familiar). If you’re interested in anything after March 4th then you can read my writeup here.
