Crimea: Historical review. Collected papers
Крим. Исторически преглед


   The book collects articles on the history of the Crimean peninsula from Antiquity to the present days. In recent years Crimea is in the spotlight since in 2014 it was annexed by Russia which turned it into a military fortress. However, the past of the peninsula is no less interesting and dramatic. It has been inhabited since ancient times: Tauri, Cimmerians, Scythians and Goths lived on the peninsula. It was part of the Hellenic culture, the Roman Empire and Byzantium, it sheltered the colonies of Genoa. Crimea was conquered by the Tatars and was the center of the Muslim Crimean Khanate for more than three centuries. In 1783 it was annexed to the Russian Empire, after the October Revolution it experienced the Red Terror and the Civil War. Until 1954, within the Soviet Union, it is part of the Russian Federation, and then of Ukraine.
