    If maps show who actually controls a territory rather than who really ought to control the territory, then I think a good case can be made that Crimea is in fact Russian territory.

    However, if we went down that road then maps would have to show that the US is (for now) Russian territory, large portions of “Iraq” are not subject to the authority of Baghdad, the Pashtun areas of Pakistan are not subject to Islamabad, and chunks of Mexico are cartel territory.
