Video: Putin’s Annexation of Crimea and the “Humiliation Excuse”

From Odyssey Network’s Faith on the Record series: Last week Vladimir Putin led Russia in the annexation of Crimea, the latest move in the international crisis unfolding between Russia and Ukraine. According to Brad Hirschfield, humiliation “is used time and again around the globe to justify some of the most horrific things”, but “faith should help us appreciate the eternal, unbendable, unshakeable human dignity that each of us possesses regardless of what those around us do or have done to us in the past.”
