American professor recalled the historical right of Russia to the Crimean peninsula

Russia will not part with the Crimea, so the United States should not build its strategy on the anti-historical neoliberal foundation, leads RIA News opinion of Lail Goldstein, a teacher at the US Naval College in Newport.


American professor recalled the historical right of Russia to the Crimean peninsula


"Russia and the Crimea are connected by a long common история - the peninsula became Russian in 1783 year, reminds the author of the article. Russians have repeatedly defended the Crimea in bloody battles - against Britain, France and the Ottoman Empire in the Crimean War and against Nazi Germany in World War II, ”the publication says.

These historical events are still relevant today, “as the United Kingdom and France got involved in the Crimean War in order to achieve the same goal that NATO has set itself for several decades: for the sake of deterring“ Russian aggression ”, the author notes. According to him, the greatest threat to Europe’s security today is the migration crisis and terrorism, not Russia.

Goldstein recalls that in the XIX century, the Americans supported the struggle of Russia for their territories, "the United States even sent to the peninsula weapon and ammunition, as well as volunteers and doctors. "

The fact that the United States once quite seriously related to the Russian identity of the Crimea clearly indicates the curiosity of their current policies in Eurasia and other parts of the world, based on attempts to challenge Moscow’s claims to the blood-soaked Peninsula in the Black Sea,
he writes.

Everyone knows, but they ignore the fact that the Crimea was transferred to the Ukrainian SSR only in 1954, the author notes.

It was a largely meaningless step, and Nikita Khrushchev obviously could not have foreseen its consequences,
Says the article.

Moscow controlled the peninsula for a long time and would hardly abandon it, so it makes no sense to feed fruitless hopes, Goldstein believes.

"A deeper knowledge of history could help American politicians stop the process of" free fall "of relations between Russia and the United States, which threatens Ukraine, Europe and the whole world," he concludes.

    And the professor is a rather capacious person. However, what was said to her is logical and justified.

          Deer they are there. The statement of the question is fundamentally wrong.
          Russia and Crimea have a long common history

          Soon we will hear from the lips of such professors:
          - Russia and the Voronezh region are connected by a long common history. laughing
          - Russia and Moscow have a long common history lol

          Paddles, they are all there - in any way they divide our country into parts.

          Crimea, Voronezh, Kazan, Uryupinsk, Khvalynsk - this is Russia. There are no these places and cities separately. There is a whole and indivisible Russia.

          Everyone in the world is well aware that Crimea has always been (and will be) a part of Russia illegally transferred to the Ukrainian SSR by Comrade Khrushchev. Only the political situation does not allow talking about it ..... and the professor is well done. I didn’t lose my face to please politicians ...

            And what about Khrushchev. Under him, Crimea was subordinate to Moscow and all of Ukraine was Russian, in the broad sense. He could not even dream in a nightmare that in 50 years Crimea would become a foreign country.
            There are big questions to our top-level modern politicians.
            Even with all disrespect for EBN, with him Kiev was in the sphere of influence of the Russian Federation. But with GDP, we lost all of Ukraine, and only Crimea could be left at a huge price. There is a big question of who is the most competent politician - the National Economy or GDP.
            IMHO. Sure.

                Well, the fact of the matter is that they did not take enteret sovereignty. And so they lived and waited for what Moscow would tell them to do.
                It turns out that EBN held them tightly for genetics.
                After 500 years, what will be written in the textbooks?
                Under Alexei Mikhailovich, Ukraine became Russian, and under Vladimir Vladimirovich, Russia gave Ukraine to the Americans. They won’t remember about Crimea.

                  I'd like to ask the sacramental question "how old are you", but it’s not accepted on "You", so I’ll ask another.
                  What role did Yeltsin personally play in the collapse of the USSR? What document did he sign, and to whom he joyfully reported immediately?
                  2. Who owns the phrase "Take sovereignty as much as you can swallow" in relation to the subjects of the Russian Federation?

                    Dear, it’s for me under a fifty dollars. And how much you? And what did you do on August 18? Not 17, but the 18th?
                    But in fact there is a topic about the Crimea, and not about the collapse. About the EBN drunk - this is a separate issue and here I don’t see the point in procrastinating it. Because all forest hedgehogs already know that Khrushchev, Yeltsin, Gorbachev, Shevarnadze, etc., are to blame for everything, and the GDP is well done, he returned everything. Or maybe Lenin is to blame, or who transferred Little Russia to Ukraine there?
                    But there is not enough mind to think about why, with all the officially appointed guilty, Kiev was subordinate to Moscow? And in the greasy zero Maidans began and Ukraine sailed across the ocean. Maybe the GDP didn’t conduct the right policy with regard to Ukraine - “You need to feed better — they won’t fly away.” And then of course Crimea was heroically returned. Have you ever thought of such a thought?

                    It's not about EBN. And about the fact that the GDP was deficient and blinked.

However, it has always been so in human history - it is difficult to find a politician-philosopher, but completely obscurantist politicians!

                Where is the guarantee that a new reformer, like a tagged one and no delay, will come .... Does everything that can be restored with such difficulty come to frustration?

                No guarantees, except common sense.

                  So far, yes, and God forbid that this goes on. What about common sense? Where is he in Ukraine? So I hope that our common sense will remain.

                    That you have addressed to the wrong address. But in my opinion - it was systematically squeezed out for a quarter of a century, replacing nationalist noodles and Russophobia.

                      Yes, who would argue ... But at least somehow you can figure out what the country is leading to? Although to be honest, to resist the mold that climbed into power in Ukraine can only be by force, but this is a war ....

                        The trouble is that Ukraine was released from the field of view of its interests, which Western "partners" did not fail to take advantage of. Now diplomats are getting more sophisticated, but there will be no sense until the "mold" is removed surgically.

                        hi , Andrew.
                        There may be a war, but to begin with, warn about the consequences of Kiev’s unreasonable actions. Frozen skakuasas said that they would take nasty measures in relation to the Crimea and the Kerch bridge - it would cost a lot of money, and the order of our "polite" - to "shoot down and drown" - has already been received:

    I hope that he speaks about this to his listeners. But in the end, he gave it out to his politicians, and most importantly, he walked along the independent muslims with their own unique history.

      Well why. The voices are getting stronger, because the American-dill cocophone is already tired of everything.

    Who is stronger is right. Everything else is empty. At that moment, at this particular point, Russia was stronger.

    Crimea is Russian and only Russian! And Professor Captain is obvious. But Khrushchev had to be tried for transferring the Crimea.

    All the arguments of opponents on this issue comes down to rhetoric and distortion of history. Well, let them go on .. by the forest. The Russians know that the wind is blowing, the ice is cold, the water is wet, and Crimea is a part of Russia legally.

    Once Friedrich formulated a well-known postulate (although it was used a long time before the Prussian emperor).
    When RI Crimea was protected by many peoples of RI. If together they are "Russian" (according to the emperor), then I agree. However, modern Russians are different from imperial ones.

    Such materials rarely appear, especially those written by a professor at the US Naval College, which has brains. This is in contrast to the numerous "pro-professors" of Moscow universities, two of which stamped candidates for president of Russia with a deficit of brain activity!
