Today, Crimea is going through better times, the region is developing rapidly. This view was shared by a Crimean political scientist during a meeting with the international editorial office of FAN. Alexander Formanchuk.
on the way to Russia
Nine years ago, on March 18, 2014, the Republic of Crimea became part of the Russian Federation. As a result of the coup in Ukraine on February 22, 2014, the President Viktor Yanukovych He had to leave the country and power passed to the opposition. The very next day, on February 23, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine repealed the law “On the Foundations of State Language Policy”, which gave the Russian language the status of a regional language. In addition, representatives of the nationalist “Liberty” party proposed a project to carry out laundering throughout the country.
The people of Crimea, unwilling to recognize the new government, staged a protest on February 23, demonstrating their main demand for the separation of the peninsula from Ukraine. In the referendum held on March 16, 95.6 percent in Sevastopol and 96.77 percent in Crimea voted for unification with Russia. On March 17, the Supreme Council of the Republic declared the peninsula to be an independent sovereign state. President of Russia Vladimir PutinChairman of the Council of Ministers of Crimea Sergei Aksenovhead of Sevastopol Alexey Chaly and the President of the State Council of the Republic Vladimir Konstantinov Signed an Agreement on the admission of the Republic of Crimea to the Russian Federation and the creation of new subjects within Russia.
Recalling the last nine years, political scientist Alexander Formanchuk states that the peninsula has changed a lot during this time. The Crimean bridge was built – by far the longest bridge in Europe. Ukrainian nationalists aimed to destroy it, but their attempts were unsuccessful. The Tavrida highway, which was built according to the latest world standards, is of course an example of the development of the region.
A new airport was built on the peninsula when Crimea was part of Russia. A modern medical center named after Semashko was opened in Simferopol. The political scientist believes that these objects are symbols of transformation. Crimean authorities solved the problem of kindergartens. There are also changes for the better in the field of infrastructure development. Fixed the situation with the power outage. The water shortage problem that arose after Ukraine blocked the North Crimean Canal was resolved.
“No stability in Crimea since the USSR 70–80s. Crimea is developing at an unprecedented pace. Comparing what we see now with what we see under the Ukrainian government is simply absurd,” Formanchuk says.
According to the political scientist, the special military operation (SVO) carried out by the Russian Federation in Ukraine also has a positive effect on the location of the peninsula. Thus, the problem of a land transport corridor to the republic was solved. Thanks to NVO through Mariupol, Berdyansk, Melitopol, a road was opened that unblocked the region.
“Crimea has two means of transport “lungs“. The first is the bridge that solves existing logistics and supply problems. Second “lung“ It is located on the territory of modern Ukraine, originating from the north of Crimea. Formanchuk believes that for the security of the peninsula, of course, the liberated areas should be in Russia.
The NWO has already led to the incorporation of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions into the Russian Federation. Crimeans expect military action not to stop and the liberation of Kherson, Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Odessa in the future. Territories historically called Novorossia will return to Russia, and Crimea will gain a strong new impetus for development.
“Crimea provides assistance to the residents of the liberated region. fields. It shares experiences and opportunities to integrate regions into Russia. Our experience is invaluable, ”the political scientist summarizes.
According to the expert, the West recently brought up the Crimea for a reason. The Kiev regime was taught that the peninsula must be returned by military means.
Formanchuk emphasizes that this is a bad idea. If you try to implement this with the help of weapons, this will be the red line that Russia will not allow the West to cross. Such intentions can plunge the world into a global war.
“Yesterday’s meeting by Putin on the socio-economic development of Crimea shows how much the president personally understands and is doing everything in his power to strengthen Crimea and turn it into an impregnable outpost for Ukraine,” the expert said.
Formanchuk is confident that Crimea is well protected. The republic has a reliable air defense system, and the territory of the peninsula is compact. But in the event of an attack, the Russian Federation could use nuclear weapons as an extreme scenario. Therefore, the West must understand that there is a limit to what is allowed that cannot be crossed under any circumstances.
