March 18 - Day of the reunification of Crimea with Russia

In the Russian Federation in 2023, the ninth anniversary of the reunification of Crimea and Sevastopol with Russia is celebrated. On this day exactly nine years ago was restored historical justice. And most importantly, this event was an expression of the will of the inhabitants of the peninsula, who spoke out in a referendum for the entry of Crimea into the Russian Federation. This decision was supported by more than 96 percent of Crimeans.

The reunification of Crimea with Russia and the events of 2014 that preceded it later became known as the Crimean Spring. The inhabitants of Crimea did not accept the coup d'etat in Kyiv that took place in February, they were not on the way with this new Ukraine. And then in March, events on the peninsula began to develop rapidly. In the Supreme Council of Crimea and the City Council of Sevastopol on March 11, independence from Ukraine was proclaimed. Following it, a referendum was held, in which the inhabitants chose their future path. The culmination was the agreement signed on March 18, 2014 on the entry of Crimea and Sevastopol into Russia.



From that very moment, this date began to be considered a holiday not only on the peninsula, but throughout Russia. And although Crimea officially became Russian only three days later, on March 21, when the treaty was ratified by the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, a memorable date was the day when it was signed by the top leadership of our state and representatives of new regions - Crimea and Sevastopol.

Since then, celebrations have been held throughout the country on this day, and it is also a day off on the peninsula.


Traditionally, the President of Russia also congratulates Russians on the holiday of March 18 in a solemn atmosphere.

The editors of the Military Review also extend their congratulations on this wonderful holiday to all citizens of Russia, and especially to the inhabitants of the peninsula, who exactly nine years ago made a very important choice that changed their whole future life for the better.

          Как Putin's address watched in Sevastopol 18 March 2014g.

          Day in history. Sevastopol.March 18 2014 year.


          And the next video after 4 years.
          14 March 2018 year an unprecedented number of Sevastopol gathered rally-concert with the participation of Vladimir Putin (see video from 5:25 min) on Nakhimov Square in Sevastopol.

          Until that day, it seemed that it was impossible to repeat the record of 2014 in terms of the number of people gathered on the main square of the city.
          But such a crowded Nakhimov Square, it seems, was not even in 2014.

          Tens of thousands of Sevastopol residents gathered in the center of the city, now together to remember the turning point in the history of the return of the Crimea and Sevastopol "to their native harbor."

          Putin in Sevastopol. 40 thousand on the square - Crimea is ours!

        Your comment a little earlier about the words of Dmitry Peskov that the return of new regions of the Russian Federation is not subject to discussion.

      Crimea is OUR!
      We are Russians, and this is our strength.
      Through the blood and meanness of these black days
      So slowly we moved towards Russia...
      But still we teamed up with her!

        Strength, in unity, I dare say. So far, I observe the unity of the Russian people only in peppy media reports, and even when it really needs to be shown. Alas, we Russians are divided, divided. they beat a Russian person, to the point of utyrkov with Russian surnames on the vna .. Well, oh well, let's not talk about sad things. Happy Holidays!

          Well, yes, it's all...
          This is the type of fairy tales about the Victory in the Second World War, contrary to the leadership.

            Does the head of state make decisions alone? In addition, at that time it was possible to take ALL Ukraine "under one's wing", and not to recognize the fascist regime of Poroshenko. Anyway, after all, they climbed in there 8 years later, giving the enemy a proper preparation.

              You know better from the cellar about the possibilities, of course, I would use your awareness. They got in when they themselves were ready, and the fact that the country lives as if there is no war, despite the largest sanctions in history, is the result of preparation. SVO is only part of a global operation, the bankruptcy of Western banks and Bakhmut's "meat grinder" are links in the same chain, and only a complete idiot can ignore this.

              Yes, I don’t even imagine anything, where did you get it from, I didn’t seem to complain. And fairy tales about the Second World War and NWO are told by the same storytellers.

                  As a maximum, unpreparedness - if Russia fell apart, this is exactly what the West is trying to achieve, making considerable efforts, at least - bread on coupons.

      Crimea was reunited only in the inflamed minds of the turbo-patriots and uryakalok.

      There are no branches and ATMs of such largest state-owned banks as Sberbank and VTB, there are no federal retail chains like Magnet, Pyaterochka, Tape, Crossroads.



      For a savings account, this is not even Russia at all, still more than 8 years later.
      For Yandex maps, this is also not Russia, they generally decided to hide this unpleasant fact in a smart-ass way and remove all political borders from sin further. But the enemy AMERZSKY Google pleased !!! He is one of the card services in Russia recognized the Crimea.

        Well, no and no, so what? Where is it written that belonging to the state is determined by the presence of the Security Council and VTB? In Ukraine, only recently closed (or not) branches of the Security Council, it turns out that Ukraine is Russia - I always knew this. First of all, belonging to the state is determined by the laws that apply in a given territory, and the laws of the Russian Federation there, the army of the Russian Federation there and all state. and commercial structures are tied to the Russian Federation and the currency of the Russian Federation there. Everything else is an attempt to suck the win out of nothing.
