I've written this originally in Czech, where it became popular, but I believe also English speaking people deserve to learn the truth, so I decided to translate it. I'm not English native, nor I have at the time anybody to proofread it, so excuse please the possible language errors

- Vladimir I the Great grandson of St. Olga, Kievan Rus prince dominated part of the Crimea. In the year 988 he married the byzantine princess Anna (in Crimean Chersonesus – today part of the Sevastopol where still is the cathedral to commemorate it) and it was him who after long discussions with the representatives of different religions choose the Christianity as a suitable religion for Russians, successfully achieved Christianization of the Kievan Rus and laid so foundations of the cultural kinship between Russia and western civilization. Since then he is regarded as patron of the Russian Catholics. So the Russians ruled over part of the Crimea already in the 10th century.

- In the 13 century it was interrupted by the invasion of Mongols-Tatars (Golden Horde).

- After the destruction of Golden Horde by Tamerlane in 1399 the Crimean Tatars found an independent khanate, but they were unable to conquest the Crimean coastal trade cities. They achieved it by the alliance with the Ottoman Empire in 1475, become its vassals, but they still kept great deal of autonomy, at the same time they raided northern territories to capture Slavic slaves (which is the base of the resentments against the Tatars to this days – although the contemporary Tatars clearly hardly can be called to the responsibility for something which happened half millennium ago). This is then opposed by Zaporozhian Cossacks.

- 1774 peace treaty between Russia and Ottoman Empire.

- 1783 – Crimea is annexed by the Russia of the Catherine the Great (and confirmed in the ensuing war against the Ottoman Empire 1787-1792) as the Taurida oblast with the capital Simferopol.

- December 12 1796 is the Taurida oblast abolished by Paul I and divided into two districts of the Taurida Governorate – today part of Ukraine approx. between western Odessa and eastern Donetsk.

- in 1802 it is created the Taurida Governorate with the capital Simferopol. (Taurida Governorate was one of the three governorates which arose from the division of the Novorossian Governorate. In 1917 the area of the northern Taurida – without Crimea - is declared being part of the Republic of Ukraine, Crimea is declared part of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic [RSFSR] in November 1920 and year later is there creates Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic [ASSR] of Crimea as the part of the Russian Socialist federation.)

- 1853-1856 Crimean war (originally between Russia and Ottoman Empire, then joined by England, France and Kingdom of Sardinia), which more or less ended by the defeat of the Russia and exhaustion of both sides, but it were the Crimean cities including Sevastopol, practically seized by the western side, which were given back to Russia by the peace treaty of Paris. Many Crimean Tatars were chased out, which subsequently resulted in economic breakdown.

- 1917-1920 Russian civil war creates a chain of short-lived Crimean states (December 1917-January 1918 Crimean People’s Republic, March 19 1918-April 1918 Tauridian Soviet Socialist Republic, Mai 1918-June 1918 German-Ukrainian People’s Republic…etc.), Crimea was one of the last bastion of the White Army.

- 18. 10. 1921 is created Crimean ASSR as an autonomous part of the RSFSR

- In the times of the WWII, namely in 1944 was the Crimea ravaged by the deportation large parts of the local population, especially Crimean Tatars accused of alleged collaboration with Nazis, which then again led to economic breakdown.

- June 30 1945 the Crimean ASSR is abolished and the Crimea so stripped of the autonomous status by the decision of the Council of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR.

- In June 1946 the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR legalized Crimea as one of the normal oblast of the RSFSR. An economic breakdown continued, given by the war aftermath and especially by the deportations which leaved parts of the Crimea almost unpopulated – more or less the situation after the Crimean war repeated itself.

- Especially in the direct connection with this crisis the Council of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR decided on April 26 1954 using later the law of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR to present the Crimea to Ukraine – above all as an attempt to solve the looming crisis – and although it was another in the row of the illegitimate social-engineering decisions by the soviets it had maybe some practical reasons, because Crimea is geographically and logistically better accessible from Ukraine than RSFSR (-it will now change after the bridge over Kerch strait is built - which was already announced).

- Only in the later years of the perestroika were the Crimean Tatars allowed to come back to their homeland, where they more or less became the core of the opposition against the communist regime

- July 16 1990 Ukrainian declaration of independence

- beginning of September 1990 deputies of the Crimean oblast start to call for the abolition of the law which abolished the Crimean ASSR in 1945 and for the restoration of the peninsula’s autonomy.

- January 20 1991 a referendum is held, in which 93.3% participants voted for restoration of the Crimean ASSR as a sovereign subject of the Gorbachev’s “reformed” Soviet Union - so practically for a total independence from the Ukraine.

- Apparently frightened by the possible balkanization of the problem the Ukrainian Supreme Soviet unilaterally approved on January 12 1991 autonomous status of the Crimea as a part of Ukraine. This status nevertheless had nothing to do with the restoration of the pre-war autonomy and this question was never raised by anybody else than Crimean Tatars.

- After the unsuccessful August coup in 1991, which foreshadowed the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the practical Ukrainian independence The Crimean government declared state sovereignty of the Crimea in September 1991.

- December 1 1991 a referendum decided independence of the Ukraine from the Soviet Union .

- December 26 1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union.

- February 26 1992 the Crimean parliament abolishes the autonomy and renames itself as Crimean Republic.

- May 5 1992 the Crimean Republic is declared and on May 6 1992 its new constitution is passed (which among other thing allowed accession to Russia) and which waited to be confirmed by the referendum on August 2 1992.

- May 15 1992 the Ukrainian parliament annulled Crimean declaration of independence and under threats of intervention gave to the Crimean parliament ultimatum to cancel the referendum or face consequences. Crimean parliament then under this pressure abolished the declaration of independence on May 19 1992 - which then again resulted in the compromise of autonomy. On the other hand the Russian parliament at the same time on the other hand adopted the resolution declaring the separation of Crimea from the Russia in 1954 illegal.

- 1993 – in the times of the hyperinflation and deep economic crisis which affected the Ukraine even more than Russia the hostility against the government in Kiev reaches one of its peaks and the Crimea by series of legislation strengthens even more its autonomy and creates office of the Crimean president.

- Crimean Tatars win in the negotiations a quote of their representation in the parliament given by the demography, which then brings advantages also for the other returning minorities – Armenians, Bulgarians, Germans, Greeks and Jews.

- January 16 1994 in the Crimean presidential election wins Yuriy Meshkov, which based his campaign on the platform of reunion with the Russia, one of his first steps was again declaration of referendum

- March 27 1994 the pro-Russian bloc Rossija wins the election to the Crimean parliament and in the referendum held at the same time the Crimean voters approve even bigger autonomy from Kiev, double-citizenship with Russia and Ukraine and sovereign legal status of the presidential decrees.

- May 1994 the Crimean parliament approves restoration of the constitution declaring full independence on the Ukraine, in October then decides with the president to write completely new Crimean constitution

- March 17 1995 after year of the political and legislative crossfire the Ukrainian parliament again abolishes the Crimean Constitution and also the office of the Crimean president, forces Crimea to respect the Ukrainian government and puts the Crimean government under direct authority of the Ukrainian president. Unseated Crimean president Yuriy Meshkov condemns the Kiev government steps and speaks for gradual accession to Russia. Crimean Tatars again completely lose their political positions they achieved in the negotiations. The commissioner of the OSCE for the minorities Max van der Stoel approves the steps of the Ukrainian government (– Ukrainian language according to the later census in 2001 have as a mother language approx. 10% minority at the Crimea - Russian approx. 77% - and so it has its idiosyncratic logic). The West (although it is already the second hostile annexation of the Crimea by the Ukraine, clearly against the will of the Crimean government and vast majority of the inhabitants), considers it being “internal affairs” of Ukraine. Contrary to that the Swiss secretary of the OSCE Andreas Kohlschutter takes a stand on the side of Crimea and complains that the “powerful radical groups in the Ukrainian parliament” want “punish and discipline Crimea and destroy its autonomy“.

- Despite the turmoil in the Crimea-Ukraine relationships the Crimean Parliament in October 1995 approves new constitution. It is then nevertheless not recognized by the Kiev government until April 1996 – after several times rewritten to comply with its demands - and it was not approved sooner than October 21 1998 and confirmed by the Ukrainian parliament December 23 1998 - already according to the art. 135 of the new Ukrainian constitution from June 28 1996 – an article from its catch X (which maybe better should be called “catch XXII”) solely dealing with Crimea – speaking about it as „integral part of Ukraine“, conditioning the content of the Crimean constitution by the approval of the Ukrainian parliament, narrowly enumerating powers of the Crimean government and in any case with absolute veto of the Ukrainian president, nevertheless with the right of the Crimean government to organize local referenda, and participate “in ensuring the rights and freedoms of citizens, national harmony, the promotion of the protection of legal order and public security”. The situation relatively calms then after the treaty between Ukraine and Russia about the Black Sea fleet division, Russian military presence at the Crimea and about the status of the Sevastopol in 1997, new constitution nevertheless starts new wave of the injustice and violence against the Crimean Tatars, the political establishment in Kiev more or less doesn’t recognize their equal status and it takes years for the repatriates just to get Ukrainian citizenship.

Recent Crimean events are well known and still in the memory so I end my brief Crimean history context here.

Compiled from various non-Russian sources - especially from English Wikipedia and from the documents of the International Committee for Crimea.


From the above is in my opinion absolutely clear that: the chaos in the Ukrainian government (- after the previous legitimate government was overthrown using key help of the radicals tightly connected to the far-right extremists), after the Ukraine came on the edge of both state bankruptcy and civil war, with the regard to the Crimean demography showing it is overwhelmingly Russian speaking territory and with the regard to the long history of the Russian presence, the history of the chain of the illegitimate acts of the soviet power as well as of the sustained oppression of the Crimea by the Ukrainian government in the recent past… justifies the reunion with the Russia as a legitimate act overwhelmingly confirmed in the referendum by the Crimean people and although held under protection of the Russian paramilitary it is clear that if it wouldn’t get protected this way the referendum would most likely never take place in the first place as happened already in the past.

I hope this information can help better understand what happened now and why.

Further to tume's overview of the history of Crimea and the Ukraine (thanks tume thumbsup.gif ), is this interview with former US Assistant Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts. He contextualises the escalating conflict with rare clarity and insight.

It's over an hour long, but well worth the time investment.
