Turkish passion in the Crimea

66



The aggravation of the political crisis in Ukraine did not go unnoticed in Turkey: Ankara believes that the weakening of the central Kiev authorities will help it to strengthen in the Crimea, having received the necessary support from the local Tatars. Turkish politicians are looking for a reason to reject the peninsula, and for the sake of it attract historians. For example, in the Turkish media on 60, the anniversary of the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine, articles were published stating that Russia, having incorporated the peninsula into Ukraine, violated the agreements with Turkey concluded at the end of the 18 century! Is such meticulousness of journalists accidental? Hardly.

Latent ripening conflict

Crimea is a pain point of Ukraine. Even before the recent political crisis, people lived here “not as” as in other regions of the country: the colorful national composition of the population always made itself felt. The peninsula since ancient times was a place of contact and mixing of civilizations, nations. But in modern stories the longest, the Crimea was under the control of the Russian and Ottoman empires - they formed the existing cultural landscape of the region.

It is not surprising that the confrontation between the Slavic and Tatar, Orthodox and Islamic worlds in the Crimea is still ongoing. The Russian Federation, as the heiress of a great empire, has not lost its influence on the peninsula, although it is in the composition of another state: what only is the recent 20-thousand rally in Sevastopol worth!

At the same time, the Republic of Turkey, like the successor of the Ottoman Empire, has its levers of influence. First of all, it is the Crimean Tatars - the people, by culture and religion close to the Turks. In a crisis of central power, the Tatars hold their own meetings and put forward their ultimatums. For example, at the end of last week, the Crimean Tatar community demanded to demolish all the monuments to Lenin on the peninsula, as well as to hold early elections to local authorities.

Fortunately, so far the verbal skirmish between the Russian and Tatar communities of Crimea has not grown into something more. The parties are limited to mutual accusations of infringing on each other’s rights, and are fighting through legitimate methods. However, when governments collapse across the country, legitimacy turns into a phantom. Probably, in the foreseeable future, the Crimean Tatar confrontation in the Crimea will become one of the most complicated conflicts in Eastern Europe.

In addition, we must pay attention to the particularly friendly relations between the Crimean Tatar community and nationalists from Western Ukraine: it seems that the new central government is ready to rely on the Tatars in order to preserve the Crimea as part of Ukraine, and only pour oil on the fire.

Today, the share of Tatars in the total population of the peninsula is increasing. Migrants sent to 40 in Central Asia return to Crimea. In 1991, the Tatars in the region were incredibly small - then few people thought about returning to their historic homeland. However, in the years following the collapse of the USSR, the pace of repatriation became avalanche-like, and now the eastern and central parts of the Crimea are almost completely occupied by the Tatars. The southern coast, Sevastopol, Kerch, the western areas of the peninsula are populated by Russians.

The situation is complicated by the fact that the birth rate in the Tatar community is much higher than in the Russian or Ukrainian. This means that the proportion of Orthodox Slavs will steadily decrease from year to year, while the number of Muslim Tatars in the coming decade will reach a peak over the last 300 years.

Dispute over Kyuchuk-Kaynardzhi peace treaty

Actually, it’s no secret to anyone: whoever owns the Crimea and the Straits owns the Black Sea. Ukraine, as a weak state, could not benefit from its strategic location, but Sevastopol and most of the Black Sea fleet belong not to her, but to Russia. Russia today is militarily the strongest power of the Black Sea basin, and could become even stronger if, in addition to Sevastopol and several military facilities, it would receive the whole Crimea.

The fact that the Crimea belongs to Ukraine is in the hands of the NATO bloc, including Turkey, which is part of it. Russian troops on the peninsula are legally limited in their capabilities, which negatively affects Russia's naval power.

At the same time, NATO itself in the Crimea is also limited. Sometimes military vessels of Western countries sometimes enter the Crimean ports, but they remain here for a short time.

However, Turkey intends to increase its influence in the Crimea not with the help of the military: it has the Crimean Tatar community at its disposal. Using informal funding channels, it is possible to ensure that the Crimean Tatars in a short time "ripe" to their national state. And then it will turn out to use the Cypriot precedent, coming to the aid of the “blood brothers”: in 1974, Turkish troops invaded Cyprus, and a few years later, an unrecognized Turkish republic was created in the northern part of the island. Quite possibly, the same scenario is prepared for the Crimea.

Turkey is now carefully putting forward demands for the return of the Crimea that it lost in the 18 century. But so far, Ankara’s position is cautiously voiced not by politicians, but by the Turkish media: it turned out that the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine’s 19 February 1954 was illegitimate, and Moscow allegedly violated the Turkish-Russian agreements three centuries ago. Moreover, the Turkish authorities were not informed of the subordination of the peninsula to another republic, which the Turkish media regard as abuse by Russia.

In 1968, Turkey has already tried to sue the Soviet Union on this matter in the International Court of Justice. At that time, relations between Moscow and Ankara were tense due to the events in Czechoslovakia, and, moreover, NATO missiles were deployed to Turkey a decade earlier, and the republic itself joined this military bloc.

Turkey demanded from the UN court the impossible: to declare Crimea Turkish autonomy in accordance with the terms of the Kyuchuk-Kaynardzhskiy peace treaty from 1774 year. According to the Turkish interpretation of this agreement, Turkey recognized only the sovereignty of Russia over the peninsula. According to Turkish diplomats, when Crimea became part of Ukraine, Russia lost sovereignty over it. And this means that the status quo is broken, and Ankara has the right to act in relation to the Crimea at its own discretion.

Last stronghold

In 1969, an international court rejected the absurd lawsuit against Turkey, because at that moment "the transfer of territory took place within the framework of one state that legally represented Russia."

But such an excuse cannot be used after the collapse of the Soviet Union, when the Crimea became part of Ukraine, and Russia formally does not belong. In the issue of the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet from 29 in January 2014, an article was published, stating that if destabilization of the political situation in Ukraine would lead to the secession of the Crimea, Turkey would demand that the peninsula be transferred under its control.

The same is claimed by the Western media, although speaking about the "oppression" of the Crimean Tatars by the Russians, about the "provocations" organized by the Cossacks. European media highly appreciate the role of the Crimean Tatar formations in the Wehrmacht, and call their actions “defensive”.

It must be remembered that journalists are not in vain considered to be the “fourth estate”: it is possible that Europe and Turkey are actively preparing for the invasion of Crimea and its transformation into a Tatar republic dependent on foreign sponsors. The Crimean peninsula is a very tasty morsel, which allows access to the Caspian Sea, the North Caucasus and Central Asia. The fleet base in Sevastopol is the most important and almost the only obstacle on the way from the West to the eastern countries. The loss of the peninsula or Sevastopol for Russia is death like: thus the southern borders of the federation will be completely bare. In addition, Russia will remain without access to the Mediterranean Sea.

It seems that the establishment of foreign control over the Crimea, the entry of NATO troops or Turkey there is one of the most important tasks for Washington, Brussels and Ankara. Having torn off the Crimea from Ukraine, taking it under his “care”, having built military bases on the peninsula, the West will direct the tip of the dagger directly to the Volga-Don steppes.

      Article minus! I read it and did not begin to read the article further ....Ankara believes that the weakening of the central Kiev authorities will help him gain a foothold in the Crimea, having received the necessary support from local Tatars.
      Turkey is now criticizing the West for supporting the thugs, because it understands that if the situation escalates, Russia will get involved and Crimea will float towards Russia, very quickly. There can be no greater threat to Turkey than this "revolution".

        Good article. I agree with the author in many ways! The situation in Crimea is becoming explosive and this is no longer in doubt. The only thing I do not agree with the author is Turkey’s open aggression? The bet will be completely made on the Tatar community and it will be supported, both morally and materially! If it comes to open conflict there will begin the transfer of weapons and volunteers of all stripes! SYRIA N2. I wonder if the Kremlin will decide on the sea blockade of the peninsula ??? The pressure of the world community and NATO will be huge !!! The population of the Crimean community is really growing very rapidly, unlike the Russian-speaking one, and the author correctly noted that the new government of Ukraine will support the Crimean Tatar community but not the Russian one! It’s only when there are no Russians left in Crimea (God forbid) who will the Crimean Tatars turn their eyes to, dreaming of the complete independence of their peninsula and protectorate of Turkey?
        It will be a long party.

    Turks are disgusting people. And the Crimean Tatars are even nastier. They will now try to "win back" the Crimea, creating some sort of autonomy. We need to prevent this, even if by force (forcing Georgia to peace has shown that we can). In the extreme, to make Sevastopol a Russian city (the Americans have a Guantanamo base in Cuba), and Odessa, for example, to give a status similar to that of West Berlin.

        Jarik56 writes the truth. Tatars are a very disgusting people - they smile in the eyes, and behind the eyes they say: "We will soon slaughter you, Russian pigs." I live in Crimea and, like many other Crimeans, very often they are confronted not only with such statements, but also with their meanness and rudeness. They have been violating all Ukrainian laws for a long time - there are no Tatar land seizures, and the authorities make concessions to them - all squatters are gradually legalizing. But if a Tatar does not seize at least five lands, they will demolish the building to him in full strictness of the Ukrainian law. And the Tatars shout at the same time that this self-seizure, not Tatar, infringes on their rights. And the head of their Mejlis, Chubarov, openly calls them to an armed seizure of power in Crimea - I myself heard.

    Well, actually, it is necessary to set goals for the country adequate to it, yes. All the "power" of the Ottoman, not even the Turkish empire remained in the 1832th-XNUMXth centuries, after that the Turks, with very rare exceptions, acted as a pear for Europeans, Russians, Mamelukes, Greek rebels, Bulgarians and Romanians, in the XNUMXth century, only the support of the Russian Empire during the uprising in Egypt in XNUMX allowed the Ottoman Empire to survive as a state in general. Then, exclusively under the tutelage of the British and then the Germans, the Ottomans somehow made ends meet, more historical ones " epic files "only from the Poles. Today's Turkey is an impoverished country, which is not like the Crimea, it keeps its territory. Although I see, whose long ears stick out from behind the Turkish back, another agonizing empire that will go to great lengths to profit from the resources of Russia. Yes, and as far as I remember, Turkey is not the legal successor of the Ottoman Empire, they have disowned all Ottoman heritage, why don't they need it, there are already some Armenians " t hoof ", plus multibillion-dollar debts, which the frail Turkish economy is clearly not able to pull. So is it worth it?

    If the Turks poke in the Crimea, then there will be a lot of blood, a lot. But I think that in this case, the Tatars will definitely have to say goodbye to the idea of ​​their state for decades.
    Neither Ukraine nor Russia accepts Crimea drift towards Turkey. And if the presence of Crimea as part of Ukraine or Russia is still an equation with many unknowns, then independent Crimea in line with Ankara or the Crimean province of Turkey is already fantastic.

    This is not the border between the Slavic peoples, this is the border between Christian and Islamic civilizations.

    A thought-provoking article! And really not picking up Crimea today, we can soon see it Turkish. And it is NATO there. If Putin manages to return Taurida, then this will be one of the most important services to the fatherland. Maybe in gold letters it can fit into the history of Russia as a "collector of Russian lands" (not a century to distribute, that's enough), and the Euro-Asian Union is a promising business that can pull us to our former positions (and maybe even higher)
    But the main thing is not to miss the Crimea now. Which for many centuries was Russian and our country has the right (obligation) to restore historical justice and give protection to the people of Tauris in the current difficult and dangerous situation.

    In recent years, Kiev has supported the Crimean Tatars solely because of its dislike of the Russian population. Plus, the Tatars are supported by Turkey and the Islamic world in general. Crimea can be saved only as part of Russia, when it will be possible to blockade the peninsula from the sea and prevent various "accomplices" from entering Crimea.

    Turkey has a claim on the Crimea? This few years there are hints that she would like to return to the land were in the Ottoman Empire. Pretty diligent in these speeches level, even the president. Cards that go for a month or two, the third of Bulgaria was under the Turkish flag. Surprisingly, none of our politicians impress. That they confuse them, they will run away first if something happens. Separately, at the beginning of the so-called democracy, she made one party in parliament, which clearly does not play in the interests of Bulgaria. As I said at the beginning, from Turkey, there is nothing new under the sun.

        This party only protects economic interests. Their voters are among the poorest people in the country, and people are not lazy at all. Mainly dealing with agriculture and construction (construction workers), they are the main tobacco producers in the country for which they receive leftovers. Nonetheless, their leaders languish in luxury. This party is opposed to communism and is a constant reminder that the Turks were subjected to it during forced name changes. You say fine. Yes, that would be normal if its leaders were not in the state security system during the same communism. Strange, isn't it. Or brazenly, you choose ..

    Erdogan would now sort things out and put things in order in his country ... I do not think that the screams of the Turkish media have any real embodiment. Rather, another propaganda "preparation of the soil" ... And Crimea, Ukraine is now "in disarray" - they have no time for reactions to Turkish stupidity and the policy of "pan-Turkism". Unfortunately, while Russia has not adopted a plan of real actions in relation to the Crimea and its population, and the peninsula itself belongs, alas, to a different state, then the formal reason for reacting to the cries of the so-rt.e.ch.n. Russia does not have. Well, if only this is how it is, in the format of an article.
    CRIMEA should be Russian!

    if present-day Turkey is the successor of the Ottoman Empire, then sanctions for this state are fully applicable to this state genocide 1915 This Russia genocide recognized the international community represented by the victorious powers in WWI precisely for genocide at one time, it decided to divide the Armenians and Turks into different states, and in fulfillment of this decision it was made arbitral award Woodrow Wilson, enshrined in the Treaty of Sèvres.
    Arbitral Award do not have a limitation period.
    All interested can search for materials in the public domain.

    So raising the issue of Crimea is more expensive for Turks

      - at the present time, the "civilized" world twists the laws in such a way that you cannot describe it in any Kama Sutra. So if this will effectively contribute to the collapse of Russia, then --- Arbitral awards will have a statute of limitations (and not only), and genocide will be "canceled" and much more ........

    If Russia does not have the courage to take Crimea to itself, let the Turks take it better. You can even negotiate with these, you look at Sevastopol as it was decided, at least the Black Sea would be under the control of a weak country. And the Crimea under the new rule is an unequivocal caput, with bases, a fleet of America in the Black Sea and the prospect of carving in Russian. By the way, for those who are not in the know. Crimea is not Russian. Russian Sevastopol, and the rest of Crimea is full of Tatars, Ukrainians and Ukrainians who were resettled by the Khrushchev in the Crimea, supposedly they are better at managing than the Russians. That is, in which case everything will end not as it seems.

    None of the officials say anything, this is the personal opinion of the newspaper’s editor. Unlike the Europeans, who do not hide their antipathy much, these are more likely to act in the East. And why should they only Crimea when in the same Tatarstan there are Turkish schools. Many imams from the Volga Tatars went to study in Turkey and Egypt. The influence that they are building up is much more important than any momentary benefits from the squabble between Russians and Ukrainians.

    This is a good provocator Artem Vit !! Oh yes, by the way, Turkey has accused the EU of conducting the wrong policy about Ukraine.

    Turkey blamed Europe for fomenting a civil war in Ukraine and provocations against Russia.

    "You are obsessed with communism. Russia is a civilized country with its own laws," said Mevlut Cavusoglu, representative of the Turkish Foreign Ministry in the European Union and chief negotiator for accession to the European Union, quoted by Anadolu.

    He noted that the position of the European Union in relation to Ukraine is wrong. "Ukraine today, I hope, is indivisible, but it is already dangerously divided. The country's integrity is now in danger. For two years we have been trying to explain to our colleagues in Europe that to raise the question before Ukraine" Either choose us, or you are not with us "- position wrong, "he said.

    The Crimean peninsula is a very tasty morsel that opens access to the Caspian Sea, the North Caucasus and Central Asia.


    Artyom Vit !! Do you even know the map? How does Crimea open access to the Caspian Sea? And even more so to Central Asia?

    You didn’t look at the map well) Between the Crimean peninsula and the rest of the mainland is the Sea of ​​Azov, into which the Don River flows, which in turn, through the Volga-Don Canal, communicates with the Volga River, which in turn flows into the Caspian Sea. And from there you get direct access to Central Asia. So closer to the point, the Black Sea Fleet needs to sail through the very narrow Kerch Strait to get to the Sea of ​​Azov and that is why possession (control) of the Crimean Peninsula is strategically important for Russia. Since the fleet will need to go around the whole of Europe and descend from the north through the whole country in order to overtake our ships into the Caspian Sea.
