Not really a surprise.

Hosts of a show on Russian state-run TV channel Russia 24 celebrated President Donald Trump reportedly claiming to other world leaders that Crimea is part of Russia because everyone there speaks Russian.
Two anonymous sources told Buzzfeed that Trump made the remarks at a dinner during the G7 summit in Canada.
In a YouTube clip from Friday whose title roughly translates to “It is high time! Trump called Crimea Russian!,” hosts of the Russia 24 show “60 minutes” discussed the BuzzFeed report, and seemed to interpret Trump’s remarks as his official recognition of Crimea’s status as Russian.
At the end of the program, “60 Minutes” co-host Olga Skabeeva triumphantly declared “Crimea is ours! Trump is ours!”
They are not even trying to deny that Trump is their puppet anymore.
Nor by the way is Trump doing much to dissuade people of that notion either.
Literally, just about everything that Trump is doing comes right out of the Putin playbook.
Attacking the media, vilifying immigrants, trashing human rights, Vlad could really not do it much better.
And that needs to be pointed out time and time again.
Donald Trump is not an American president, he is, in fact, a Russian asset.
Which our intelligence agencies have known since before he was elected.
