    In Ukraine's Simferopol, a mass brawl took place near the Crimean Parliament between those supporting the new government of Ukraine and the people protesting against it.

    The Crimean Tatars took the side of the supporters of Euromaidan. Shouting "Allahu Akbar!" they broke through the cordon separating them from the pro-Russian groups. One of the participants of the scuffle suffered a severe head injury.

    The parliament of the Crimea gathered for a special meeting on February 26 to develop a strategy of actions in light of the current state of affairs n Ukraine.

    Will Russia take Crimean Peninsula back from Ukraine?

    A bomb has exploded near the Crimean Parliament in Ukraine. A group of protesters is trying to break into the building of the Supreme Council of the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea in the city of Simferopol, where officials gathered for a special meeting to discuss the political situation in the country.

    As many as 7,000 people gathered near the building. They take part in two rallies. A part of them chant: "The Crimea is not Russia! Ukraine, Ukraine!" There are many supporters of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars among the protesters.

    The participants of the other meeting, under the flags of Russia and the Crimea chant "Russia,Russia!"


    Rocks and sticks are flying from the crowd. Smoke is billowing above those taking part in one place of the meeting: the people are burning leaflets of the "Russian Unity" organization.

    An explosion has just occurred near the building of the Parliament of the Crimea. The situation remains extremely intense.

    UPDATE: The explosion was most likely caused by a large firecracker. It caused no destruction, no one was injured. However, soon after the explosion, the dead body of an elderly man was found. Paramedics said that the man died from a heart attack.




    Can anyone explain me the thing about Crimea? is it traditionally and historically Russian or Ukrainian?



    Historically, whose only was not. There were Greeks and Scythians and the Khazar Khanate and Great Bulgaria and the Crimean Khanate and Russia. Only recently evicted for supporting fascism Crimean Tatars have returned from exile and had built its booth 2 * 2 m, hoping to get land at Kravchuk, Kuchma and Yushchenko.



    and Turks



    and Genoa Republic

    Ukrainian only since 1954 and this is why it is such a flashpoint.

    Traditionally and historically Russian Empire, though prior to this Crimean Khanate (until Russia crushed it and added it).

    Now today, Russian majority (60%), Ukrainian minority (25%) and Tatar minority (15%), with Tatars and Ukrainians generally being more friendly with each other than with Russians, but nonetheless Ukrainians here are more pro-Russia in general than other Ukrainians.



    Russia is doing a stupid decision to behave like this,..
