January 20 - Crimea Day

44
Today in Crimea, 27 celebrates the anniversary of the referendum held against the background of the vicissitudes of the last months of the USSR. The referendum was held on January 20 1991 of the year, and, as stated by the head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov, the vote was the starting point for the return of the peninsula to Russia. Today, the holiday is called the Day of Crimea and is celebrated throughout the peninsula.


Sevastopol:
January 20 - Crimea Day


From Sergey Aksyonov's appeal to residents of the Crimea:

Dear Crimeans!

I congratulate you on the Day of the Republic of Crimea!

This holiday reminds us of the great and difficult path that we have traveled together. All история the re-created 27 years ago of the Crimean autonomy is the story of our return home to Russia.

In the early nineties, the Soviet Union experienced a severe social, political and socio-economic crisis. The foundations of the centuries-old friendship of nations were destroyed. Yesterday’s party functionaries and Komsomol members repainted and became violent nationalists and separatists.

Crimea responded to the destroyers of the country with peaceful and organized resistance. It culminated in the first referendum in the history of the Soviet Union, which was held on January 20 1991. He passed not by order from above, but by the initiative of citizens.

During the referendum, almost one and a half million Crimeans or more than 93 percent of those who voted supported the re-establishment of the Crimean autonomy as part of the renewed Union. In fact, it was a vote for Russia. It was precisely the striving for unity with the historical Homeland that was the main driving force of the referendum.

Unfortunately, the results of the free and democratic will of the Crimean people were ignored not only by Ukraine, but also by the then leadership of Russia. However, even the limited autonomous status of our republic allowed the Crimea for many years to resist forced Ukrainization, preserve inter-ethnic peace, fight attempts to revise history, strengthen our ties with Russia.

The status of autonomy helped prepare the ground for the Crimean Spring and ensure the legal integrity of reunification with Russia. The January referendum of 1991 can rightly be called a prologue to this historic event, to the revival of our republic and our great country.

The reunification of Crimea with Russia has become a symbol of the formation of a multipolar world, which is based on the power of law, not the right of the strong, freedom and justice for all peoples, not just for the elect.

The first step on this journey was 20 January 1991.

Dear countrymen!

Thank you for your dedicated work, for patriotism and support, for your patience and understanding!

Happy Holidays!


Recall that in January 1991, the Crimean people were asked to answer the following question:
Are you in favor of recreating the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic as a subject of the USSR and a party to the Union Treaty?

With a turnout of more than 81%, the overwhelming majority of voters answered the question “Yes” (93,26%).

It is noteworthy that even then there were active opponents of the recognition of the results of the results of the referendum on autonomy. In particular, some representatives of the organization, which is now called “Mejlis” (banned in the Russian Federation), said that the plebiscite of 1991 for the year allegedly did not take into account the opinion of the Crimean Tatars.

In fact, the Ukrainian politicians who rushed to power in the 1991 year of the Crimean people were deceived. People actually voted for autonomy as part of the Union State, and received a “counterfeit copy” in the form of autonomy within Ukraine, which (autonomy) was also nullified by the Kiev authorities.

        Happy holiday. But the date is not successful .. There is no symbolism in it, the Crimeans voted for one thing, but it turned out another, and if you don’t boom, then Russia in 91 betrayed the Crimeans ... it’s good that everything was so ruined in 2014. And about significant dates, the Crimea is rich in them as few other regions. Take if only 1783 - the Crimean peninsula was annexed to the Russian Empire.

        Everything will someday return to their native harbor, and Galicians would also be better off returning to Poland, without them Ukraine would be real Ukraine, and not servile with ambitions as it is now.
        Today, the holiday is called the Day of Crimea and is celebrated throughout the peninsula.

        Happy Crimea! good

            I think that somewhat is not so. It will be right, for Ukraine it is vital to return to Russian control. But there is a saying that free women cost the most. So it is better, as before, to buy from Ukraine what it still has to offer.

            do we create a problem ourselves to solve it courageously and for a long time? It’s not easier under the HSP (we don’t need Ukraine, feed it, etc., etc.) laughing

    Not Russia, but drunk Yeltsin did not discuss the status of Crimea and Sevastopol. And so, Crimea he always was, is and will be Russian. And when Crimea finally returned, it was as if the whole nation had formed a second birthday. There were hopes that the truth did not quite materialize. But our hopes that we will be reunited within the former borders and will not offend Russian people.

    At whose expense the banquet ... Sanatorium Miskhor ... A trip for twelve days, including medical procedures ... They refused to conduct them under the pretext that it takes fourteen days for a full cycle ... Question ... why do they sell tickets for twelve days and why we pay for the treatment that we don’t get ... And we learn about it upon arrival ...

      Miskhor is a beautiful place! the fact that local buzyat is a common thing. The main thing is to speak with them from the standpoint of the law, Russian. And many still live according to the laws of Ukraine or their own, local. You ask a simple question- "how do your requirements comply with a particular federal law?" And if you also bring the article - there is a stupor, bleating and lowing. Funny however! Have a nice rest!

    And so, Crimea he always was, is and will be Russian.

    in 1977 I asked myself this question: "Why is the Crimea Ukrainian?". Having grown up on Stanyukovich, Tolstoy, Panorama and the Diorama of Sevastopol, I did not agree with this. Only my opinion then did not interest anyone, as it does now. But still .... in 2014 they heard him.
    Do not believe me, I cried and watched Putin’s speech, everyone was waiting for the final part. And then the joy and all - all the phone calls. The deceased mother-in-law cried, did not believe everything. This is not forgotten.

    Not joining, but voluntary vossociation Crimea Crimeans with Russia Russian Orthodox Christian, Russian Orthodox Christians, people of Russia Russian Orthodox Christian.
    Joining and reuniting are different words and meanings. Russian Orthodox Christians, Russia Russian Orthodox Christian-not aggressors-invaders-invaders. And kind and good people and country. Empire of Good-Russia Russian Orthodox Christian, Russian Orthodox Christians, people of Russia Russian Orthodox Christian. In Russian Orthodox Christians, Russia Russian Orthodox Christian, everyone sees and finds protection, peace, goodness, justice, future, prosperous
    It’s prosperity, wealth. And therefore, they love and want, of their own free will and at will, voluntarily as part of Russia Russian Orthodox Christian, to Russian Orthodox Christians. To be Russian Orthodox Christians, Russia Russian Orthodox Christian, the people of Russia Russian Orthodox Christian.
    It would seem that one word is a trifle, but how much it means and changes: they’ve attached, captured, made aggression. And they reunited voluntarily, according to their will and decision, quietly, peacefully, without aggression, war, or murder. Always remember this.
    And defend yourself competently. And not from the bay-floundering.
