EU Provoking Russia by Attempting Color Revolutions in Belarus, Ukraine and Crimea

Crimea

Crimea held a referendum on March 16, 2014 and 89% of the Crimean citizens voted in favour of integration into the Russian federation, a referendum which started the provocations of the European Union (EU) against Russia. The Crimean peninsula is located on the northern coast of the Black Sea and has strong historical, economic, military and cultural ties with Russia. Crimea’s strategic importance for Russia is well known to the EU. A bridge between east and west so to speak. Crimea always was part of Russia, until Sovjet leader Nikita Khrushchev (Ukrainian) decided to give it away as a sort of present to Ukraine. In 1954, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union issued a decree transferring Crimea from the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic to the Ukrainian SSR. The majority of the citizens of Crimea are etnic Russians and also, Sevastopol, the capital of Crimea is a strategically important port and naval base throughout history. The city has been a home to the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

Since 2014, the EU is trying to use the minority Tatar community of Crimea to be part of the hybrid war, or trying to provoke a color revolution in Crimea. In 1944, at the end of WWII the ethnic Tatar population was expelled from parts of Crimea, because many members of its community collaborated with the German NAZI‘s. But the last twenty-five years, they gradually returned to Crimea, a reconciliation process has been conducted, the Western media and governments don‘t mention this in their news outlets, just saying that the Tatars were expelled, without giving a proper reason, or the historical context behind it.
