Was Russland anstelle der Krim erhalten hat

Es wird jetzt überall behauptet, dass Chruschtschow die Krim der Ukraine geschenkt habe. Tatsächlich hatte er damit nichts zu tun. Die Übergabe der Krim an die Ukraine fand am 19. Februar 1954 statt. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt war Chruschtschow noch nicht entscheidungsbefugt, obwohl er bereits Erster Sekretär der KPdSU war.

Die Krim übergab G. Malenkow, und K. Worochylow hat die Verordnung des Präsidiums des Obersten Rats der UdSSR unterschrieben.

Noch ein sehr wichtiges Detail, das oft verschwiegen wird: Im Gegenzug zur Krim hat Russland Taganrog und alle anliegenden Gebiete, die dem Territorium der Halbinsel Krim entsprechen, erhalten. Erwähnenswert ist, dass Kyiw im Gegenzug für die reichen schwarzen Böden von Taganrog die ariden Böden, Salzsteppe, Gebiete ohne Wasser und Bewässerungssysteme, ohne Strom und Energieressourcen bekommen hat. Aber kaum jemand berücksichtigt dies heute.

"The Revolution Still Is" “Revolution Continues”

I am not justifying or blaming anyone.
I will attempt to view [the situation in Crimea] from the position of a Russian speaking-Ukrainian nationalist in an emotionless way. From the position of a person who is concerned about the revival and formation of the country. For the liberation of Ukraine from its Soviet legacy and Russian dominance.
From the position of a person who stood on Maidan for the good. Like thousands of others. Like millions who support the revolution.
As someone who wants to see Ukraine become a truly independent, developed and flourishing [country].

I’m very disheartened that people who 20 years ago were enraptured with the heroes of the revolution such as Kotovski, ComradeArtem, Shchors and others, are now suddenly throwing labels around.
Gangs, gangsters, extortionists, looters, etc. Let’s not forget history.
And without sentences and verdicts. History will evaluate [them].
Until the revolution…

Problems in Crimea: the worst is yet to come

[My brother] Orest called from Simferopol.

In short, he said the following:

The underground passages are not illuminated anymore. He was walking to work through an underpass, and a few Russian servicemen passed him in the opposite direction. They were cursing and using their cell phones as flashlights, because the darkness was just terrible. No electricity.

Between themselves, they said that they would have to stay in Crimea without illumination for a while. 🙂

And I thought that this morning I’d heard on the radio about Russia willing to sell [natural] gas to us at a price of $500, while Europe would sell it cheaper – at $350.

And now, the neighbours are complaining that the air is no longer fresh in the city, and that it stinks of diesel oil everywhere.

And they are just getting started… The worst is yet to come.
