Apple Maps the Ukraine Conflict.

Point-of-honor or point-of-view? Take your pick? Apple enters the battle on the side of the Ukrainian. Apple fear the terrible wrath of Vlad?

"Apple Maps now displays Crimea as part of Ukraine to viewers outside of Russia"

"Apple Maps now shows Crimea as part of Ukraine when viewed outside of Russia, in what appears to be a new and quiet update. Mashable first reported the change, which comes amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. Now, when you search or click on Crimea, it is displayed as Ukrainian territory. Apple did not respond to TechCrunch’s request for comment regarding the change and has not publicly addressed the matter."

INCORPORATION of Crimea into the Russian Federation NOT RECOGNIZED by Apple. Rather Crimea displayed on maps as UKRAINIAN sovereign territory.

Hardly this a new phenomenon. Currency, stamps, maps, television insets and even child's cartoons  historically used to display claims to disputed territory. See previous blog entry [with many additional embedded links] as relevant:
