Why Crimea is not Russia?

May 23, 2018
On the 18 May 1944, the deportation of Crimean Tatars from Crimea started on Stalin's order. More than 240 thousand people were forced to leave their homes and have been deported to Middle Asian republics of the USSR. Only in 1989 some of them received an opportunity to come back. These events are to be remembered, as Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014 in many ways repeats the events of 1944. Many Crimean Tatars have been forced to leave their homes once again.
