I have trouble with Google Translate.
Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
Anyway. I found the article here and used the browser's translation tools instead.

Russia events in 1917 and before can still be very sensitive:)

Leading the charge against “Mathilda” is 36-year-old Duma deputy Natalia Poklonskaya, Crimea’s former general prosecutor and a member of the ruling United Russia party. Citing the “religious feelings,” Poklonskaya wants prosecutors to scrutinize both the film’s financing and its entire script.

Ukrainian nationalists blocked railways and autostrades to separatist regions. Well, now, because of blockade, an Ukrainian steelmakers are starting to ask for coal in Russia.

Ukrainian State Statistics Service - the data show that in 2016 investment came from 77 countries, and major investor, which accounted for almost 70% of total investments, were Russia. It's without Crimea and separatist territories.

This story remind me of when Kim Jong Il died in North Korea and the bears wept:)
http://www.rferl.org/a/ukraine-live-blog-events/28023694.html
Russian Orthodox Church officials in the Kremlin-annexed Crimea region have refuted a controversial claim by State Duma Deputy Natalya Poklonskaya that a bust of Tsar Nicholas II in Simferopol wept tears on the centennial of his abdication of power.
The Eparchy in Crimea said on March 7 that a special commission checked Poklonskaya's claims on March 6 and found no traces of tears either on the bust or on icons in a chapel next to the bust.
The Eparchy said that the cleric at the chapel "should be instructed to watch the bust and report if tears appear on the bust."
Poklonskaya made the claim on March 3 in a televised program, saying that she had been informed of the "miracle" by colleagues in Crimea, where she briefly served as the Moscow-imposed prosecutor after Russia seized and annexed the Ukrainian peninsula in 2014.
Nicholas was executed along with his entire family in 1918 by the Bolsheviks, who by then had seized power.

I must say they have very strange laws in Ukraine.
Yuliya Samoylova was chosen on 12 March 2017 to represent Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 held in, the capital of Ukraine, Kiev, with the song "Flame Is Burning".[1]
On 13 March 2017 the Security Service of Ukraine anounced that they might bar her entering Ukraine due to her allegedly unlawfully (according to Ukrainian law) visiting Crimea (a peninsula that was unilaterally annexed by Russia from Ukraine in 2014) in 2015.[3]
(According to Ukrainian law entering Crimea (or any other part of Ukraine) via Russia is illegal.[3])

Revisiting the Annexation of Crimea in 2014: What it was, and what it was not
http://en.zois-berlin.de/zois-topics/zois-spotlight/zois-spotlight-12017/
In 2014 there was no regional mobilization for reunification with Russia or regional independence. After a period of Crimean mobilization for independence and closer links with Russia in the mid-1990s, which Russia under Yeltsin chose not to back, Crimea had been integrated into the Ukrainian state.

Putin says "Make Russia Great Again"
And "Russia First"
But can we just say "Sweden/Finland Second"?

Hehe:) Quite fun really.
But as far I can tell the Ukrainian Cost Guard exercise was more how to stop Russian saboteurs enter Mariupol with small boats.
Each of the five Russian fleets (Baltic Fleet, Northern Fleet, Pacific Fleet, Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla) has a marine Spetsnaz brigad.
Spetsnaz are trained to sneek into other countries even by sea to sabotage.
