Word of the Day, Political Edition

  1. Irredentism
  2. Irredentism (from Italian irredento, "unredeemed") is any position of a state advocating annexation of territories administered by another state, or the independence of those territories, on the grounds of common ethnicity or prior historical possession, actual or alleged.
  3. Irredentism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I can't remember what I was reading, but I bet it was about Russia's irredentism of Crimea.
