  1. It’s the new reality, Putin brings death, and Apple brings solace

  2. Are we still pretending it’s part of the Ukraine? I’m not condoning it, just saying they conquered it and the world let them, we should at least accept that, and if we don’t someone with some muscle should step up and do something about it. Someone? Anyone? *cricket chirps*

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.theverge.com/2019/11/27/20985762/apple-maps-weather-apps-crimea-russia-territory) reduced by 69%. (I’m a bot)

    > When used within Russia, Apple's Maps and Weather apps now list Crimea as being a Russian territory.

    > It only applies when Crimea is viewed or searched for with Apple Maps inside Russia; elsewhere in the world, Crimea isn't labeled as Russian territory.

    > "Crimea and Sevastopol now appear on Apple devices as Russian territory," the State Duma said in a statement posted to its website, referring to Crimea's former listing as an "Inaccuracy" that was "Finally removed." As a result of the change, Apple Maps and Weather are now "In compliance with the requirements of the Russian legislation." The Verge has asked Apple for comment on the situation.
