1) Just imagine for 1 min Mexico would want to join the Warsaw Pact ...
2) Afaik Crimea until the '60s belonged to Russia, that is until Chrustschow (a guy from the Ukraine) became the boss.
3) Putin is no saint, but the West especially US keeped poking Russia even when they were down in the last 25 years. Add to that the contest threat to the russian underbelly by China. Being cooperativ until 2005 get Russia nowhere with the west.
-->> And you guys keep wondering why Russian foreign politics get's more agressive in the last ~10 years.
It's much more complicated than that. I know for a fact that russians living in the Baltic States are discriminated nowdays - there they are a minority. I can't say much about Crimea before Putin marched in, but I suspect it wasn't a good place to be a russian. Add history and geopolitics to mix and things don't look that black and white anymore as western media and goverments wants you to believe.
