He means that they're not taking sides...but in a really bad way.

But Crimea did have countryhood for a day or a week.

Crimea was an independent nation between the time it voted to split away from Ukraine, and the time it joined the Russian Federation... maybe this game was created during that window?

That may be true and it's a good way to be neutral. However, FM15 was released in November 2014, the time period where Crimea left Ukraine by de facto happened in February and March 2014. Crimea aren't members of UEFA, UEFA even attempted to ban teams from Crimea playing in Russian competitions. Also, the game doesn't include other disputed places such as Western Sahara (or the SADR).

Maybe it takes place in Febuary 2014?

At any rate, it's a bad way to stay neutral.

But the problem is it wasn't neutral. Saying that Crimea is or were an independent nation is not neutral at all. It's being on pro-russian side.

No, it's saying that it's not Ukrainian bit or Russian bit.

Maybe it's to avoid including it in Ukraine or Russia.

Well, its not like any other nation is laying claim on western Sahara (except for fucking western Sahara), and its therefore not very comparable. The difference between western Sahara and Crimea is that Crimea is simply a territory while Western Sahara is a partially recognized state.

Western Sahara - territory.

Sahrawi - country
Morocco - country

They consider Gibraltar and Faeroe Islands and England countries, too?

Yes, because in real life, they are members of UEFA. England and the Faroe Islands are also members of FIFA. Crimea on the other hand is a member of neither, so they can't play international football (soccer), nor can their club sides enter the Champions League or Europa League.

Well in that case the game would also include other places under territorial disputes, such as the Falkland Islands, Kashmir, Hala'ib Triangle, etc. but it doesn't.
