That barely scratched the surface.

The new CFR president, Richard Haass has constantly pushed destabilization and Balkanization of Ukraine, so that "more likeable" leaders could be installed into the various new districts; and now is concerned that "We Could Well Be Looking at ‘Prolonged Russian Control of Crimea’" John Kerry, Victoria Nuland, Geoff Pyatt, etc...all names, you've probably heard recently. They're playing a dangerous game that could easily turn ugly. And, how do you trust people who openly suggest "give them promises and guarantees, then hang them"? Putin can't just leave the Russians in Crimea to fend for themselves, or can he? That's a scary thought. At any rate, I don't see him giving up his naval base without a fight. Interesting times.
