How Crimea and Sevastopol returned to Russia

On March 18, 2014, Crimea and Sevastopol returned to Russia. This event can be attributed to significant stories modern Russia, in the history of the Crimean peninsula. The way Crimeans opposed the Kiev regime showed their decisiveness and civic heroism.

Six years later, new evidence appears of what happened in the Crimea and Sevastopol in early 2014.

The story of how Crimea returned to Russia is presented by war correspondent Alexander Sladkov. On his Sladkov + channel, he presents an hour and a half film, which is based on the personal testimonies of a famous journalist.

Alexander Sladkov:

All that I saw with my own eyes, I can tell you and show you.

From the documentary tape:

You know how interesting it turned out: flew out of Russia, landed in Ukraine - in Simferopol. And they flew back already from Russia, from the same airport. It was already another country.

The film presents footage from Sevastopol, where people met the arrival of the Russian spring - the spring that returned the peninsula to Russia.

      I am also happy for both Crimeans and Russians. For all of us it was a holiday, there is no more correct so HOLIDAY! Holiday of spring, Russian spring. We kept our eyes on the news, caught the slightest changes in the situation, empathized, helped with what we could, I no longer remember where the money was transferred, collected things and products. It was a real all-Russian holiday of the Russian spirit. It was Crimeans who showed in those days HOW to love their homeland! A deep bow to all participants in those events.
      But, against the background of the holiday, I will throw a fly in the ointment. Seeing what is happening in the Crimea and the Donbass, what kind of popular upsurge can cause a wave of people tied by a common goal, it seems to me that many of our powers that be were scared and further events in the Donbass only strengthened my confidence in this. Our power was frightened by the rise of the popular wave. Therefore, the Donbass began to crush, therefore, and I am more than sure not without the participation of our powers that be, they began to methodically knock out the leaders of the Donbass, Mozgovoy, Dryomov, Motorola, Givi and others. The authorities were afraid of their people and the authorities began to crush the Donbass. They were not allowed to crush the APU when they really could.
      What now? Why is Crimea still in Russia as a poor relative? No, it is, of course, the Crimean bridge, the Tauris highway, etc., BUT, where are the Russian banks in the Crimea? Is this our territory or not?
      In general, six years have passed, but questions remain. Yes, Putin has already made history by joining Crimea, if he hadn’t done it then it’s not known what would happen to Russia itself now. But now, what's next? And then we'll see ...
      Nevertheless all with a HOLIDAY! Crimeans, and patience and good luck to you, we are with you!

    We believed such a time would come
    We knew that the process would not be reversed.
    The glorious city of Sevastopol will return home
    The peninsula of Crimea will return to its native harbor.

    Ushakov was never forgotten here.
    They don’t just write history
    Crimea returned under the banner of the tricolor
    St. Andrew in the Black Sea Fleet flies the flag
    Prince Vladimir was baptized here
    He laid a new Russia in Chersonesos
    Once paid off wild peoples
    put an end to strife

    Catherine looked far
    I decided to the Russian fleet
    on the black sea to be
    Potemkin ordered by decree
    In Crimea, this city-fortress Sevastopol lay.

    Now we are charged with annexation
    and blame Putin for having seized a half-island
    Crimea has not been and will not be part of Ukraine
    And it clearly confirmed the referendum

    We are proud of the Russian President
    Great countries true he is a son
    Russia, he returned to its former glory
    Turned into a great power.

    Under him, everyone respected Russia
    The people of the whole earth, we bring peace to the world
    more than once we saved neighbors and Europe
    And if you need to save the whole world!

    How the peninsula was returned to Russia literally "in hot pursuit" one of the participants of the Committee of Crimean Special Services Veterans told me. This moment. Why they don’t illuminate. Although their role was enormous.

    Here is what I saw in Crimea in April 2014:
    I am in the Crimea and I can say one thing - EVERYONE with whom I spoke (relatives and friends) is sincerely glad that they finally became Russian citizens. And nothing scares them - they believe in the future and that finally they will live like normal people.
    I will not write about the assessment of what happened by the Crimeans, but I will give one simple example that gives an idea of ​​their moods.
    The Fresh retail network closes its network in Crimea because the Ukrainian government has banned them from working there and they are selling inventory in two currencies. Several cash desks accept hryvnias, and one works only for rubles, although pensions are already received in rubles with a 25% premium. Everyone gets rid of hryvnia, and therefore there is practically no queue at the ruble cash desk. Some, especially older people, not seeing the announcement of this, want to pay in it for the hryvnia, but the cashier explains that you need to go to another cashier. When I was one local veteran, when he was told that the hryvnia at the box office did not accept with pride he said - "I pay with Russian rubles!"
    Well, where in Russia can one see a person so sincerely proud of our money?

    As my wife said, we’ll remember the 14th year as the best we have in our lives (of course, from public life). Thanks to the people of Russia for not leaving their own.

    As the poet said:

    “... You are menacing in words - try in practice!
    Or the old hero, deceased on his bed,
    Unable to screw up your Izmail bayonet?
    Is the Russian tsar already powerless to speak?
    Or should we argue with Europe new?
    Il Russian weaned from victories?

    Or a little of us? Or from Perm to Tauris,
    From the Finnish cold rocks to the flaming Colchis,
    From the shocked Kremlin
    To the walls of immobile China,
    Shiny bristles,
    Will not the Russian land rise? ..
    So send us to us, Vitia,
    His angry sons:
    There is a place for them in the fields of Russia,
    Among the coffins that are alien to them .... "
