Seven years of the Crimean referendum: details of recent history

Seven years ago, events took place that, without exaggeration, divided the life of the country into “before” and “after”. Crimeans voted in a referendum on secession from Ukraine and subsequent entry into the Russian Federation. In Kiev, they announced that the referendum was "not legitimate", as if they had forgotten how, against the background of the collapse of the USSR, they themselves changed the question of the All-Union referendum on the preservation of the Country of Soviets. Then everything was “legitimate” with them, but the referendum in Crimea was “no”. Typical double standards.


However, the Crimeans showed their will, giving an unequivocal answer to the question of whether they are ready to continue living as part of Ukraine. Residents of Crimea and Sevastopol, with a turnout of more than 80 percent, said "Yes!" future within Russia.

It is important to note that the events on the Kiev Maidan became a kind of additional impetus for making a decision.

When the rabid nationalists decided to crush the protest from ordinary citizens, turning a completely ordinary rally (and this is how it all began in 2013) into a real massacre with a choreographed set of provocations, it was impossible not to react. The Crimeans watched how they beat up the Berkut fighters, how they brought down those who disagreed with the demands of the radicals, how they tried to establish Maidan power on their native peninsula. Observed and made a conclusion. And the main conclusion is that Crimea has become part of Russia.

About how events developed 7 years ago, about the details of the newest stories, about the referendum, in the story:

        Only it was necessary not to return Crimea, but all of Ukraine and integrate it into the EAEU. And so we lost a lot of money and there is no end and edge to import substitution. And close by is a black-and-red enemy who is one step away from the creation of NATO military bases. Peremogaaaa.

          Let the West support Ukraine. There is no need to raise the living standards of Ukrainians at the expense of Russia as it was under the Union.

            And the West will not contain, but will continue to steal from Ukraine. How long? Until either Russia wins or, in the opposite case, spits it out with the retirement population and is completely naked. But for Russia, these lands are still a zone of interests and they will have to be raised from such an insignificant state. Therefore, it was necessary to support Yanyka and break all the plans that the West had been implementing for so long with Ukraine.

              Russia should not worry about these issues. Let the Ukrainians be robbed, that's what we need. It was the Ukrainian communists who took Crimea out of the RSFSR. Because of them, Crimea remained in Ukraine in 91.

                When, near Kharkov, the NATO base will then begin to worry Russia about these issues? We have lost 40 million. a person in the sense of the economic market and what kind of industry that would save us the money that we have to spend on import substitution. You can't think so narrowly! We do not care about a neighboring state when the United States imposes its influence everywhere. If we were talking about Bulgaria, then okay, but the enemy is at the door, and we say that this does not bother us

          This is my friend's policy, and there it is not always the shortest and most correct direct path. But I partially agree with you, Novorossiya had to be brought to mind.

    The first referendum in Crimea (it was the first in the history of the USSR) was organized on January 20, 1991. The decision to hold it was made on November 12, 1990 at an extraordinary session of the Crimean Regional Council of People's Deputies. The question was submitted to the referendum: "Are you for the re-establishment of the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic as a subject of the USSR and a participant in the Union Treaty?"

    I would like to hear a similar response from Russia in the Donbass.

      And not only about the Donbass, there are still many territories where Russians live very difficult.

        Moreover ... The servility of our tolerant leadership is already enough ...

    I remember, at this event, I honestly won a bottle of "whiskey" on a bet. Which was subsequently used for its intended purpose (between the disputing parties) under the wishes of the prosperity of the Crimea and the Crimeans as part of the Russian Federation.

    Putin did a good job by joining Crimea, but he did not do a great thing without joining Novorossia to Russia, and they were waiting there! We don't need all of Ukraine, give us our Russian !!!
