Crimean Tourism Infrastructure Flourishes Despite Geopolitical Threats

The title of the video below in Russian is: ‘Dear Ukrainians, this video is especially for you: Crimean tourism infrastructure flourishes.’ Such title because Kiev MSM and politicians insist that Crimea is falling apart under ‘Russian rule.’ Of course, this is silly and reality cannot be further from the truth. But some people in Ukraine, completely zombified by propaganda, actually believe this. In fact, Crimea was falling apart and dying a slow death under Kiev. Presently, even despite excruciating water, food, transport and energy blockade, Crimea is being fixed up and rebuilt.

It is surfacing every day that those navy and army officers who believed Kiev and left Crimea in 2014 to continue serving in Ukraine army, are now little by little defecting and returning to Crimea. Sometimes whole units defect.

Crimean attractions are world-famous: Yalta’s beaches, gorgeous nature and imperial palaces (say, Levadia Palace where Stalin, Rosevelt and Churchill met in 1945); Swallow’s Nest; world’s largest children’s recreation resort/summer camp Artek,; Sevastopol’s Black Sea fleet base and underground Soviet mega-submarine base; various historic palaces, beaches, parks, rock climbing, natural caves and ethnic food.

On this short video: Crimea is being fixed up from the neglect and abuse it endured during 23 years of being looted by Kiev oligarchs/ nationalistic politicians, and re-styled as an all-year round sea resort with emphasis on rejuvenation spa, health tourism and all-inclusive tours that Russians prefer.

Some gorgeous Black Sea views on this video!

On video: Crimean Bridge projected look – the construction has begun, to be completed by the end of 2018. February off-season Crimean hiking and famous Marble Caves, where natural stalagmite castles and palaces have been built by nature itself.

Next on video: various hotel accommodations with off- and on-season all-inclusive pricing. Next: budget/ inexpensive private sector pricing. Simferopol Airport now receives 5 mln passengers a year, more than during Soviet times. After reconstruction scheduled for 2018 more flights from Russia and abroad will be received.

Kerch Strait option by car or by plane from mainland: you can leave the car in designated parking on mainland side and buy 1/2 price subsidized ticket to a city in Crimea: Yalta, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Feodosia, etc. The bus takes you to ferry and then to your destination. Tickets really do sound very cheap: from Krasnodar to Sevastopol/Yevpatoria/Yalta – about 810 rub.

In the end: Bakhchisarai (the capital of Crimean Tatars) has a park of minis: main architectural attractions of Crimea, with various historic palaces, etc. Crimean Tatar national cooking is shown. Crimean tourist expo in Yalta will choose the best all-inclusive tour route for Crimean season 2016. These are offered by various tour operators. Winner will be chosen by tourist vote.

Despite it’s abundant natural and man-made beauty, Crimea rarely new lasting peace. It has for centuries been a geopolitical hot spot and a bone of contention for great powers vying for control of Black Sea. The real reason has always been the control of Russia’s soft underbelly.

The only time Crimea had any chance for peace and prosperity was when it was an integral part of Russia. Today, it is regaining what it once lost.

Not all is rosy in Crimea, which is natural as a manifestation of the growing pains, magnified as a result of relentless sabotage and acts of terrorism by Ukraine, Turkey, ISIS and US/EU.

The worrying vestige of the ‘independent’ Ukraine’s past – remaining local corruption, neglect, lack of caring for one’s own land and understanding how to govern for the good of all – are also heavy burdens on those who are working extremely hard to return Crimea to its former glory.

However, despite all these difficulties, the general direction is towards optimism, stability, prosperity and hope. Crimea is again beginning to blossom.

External threats continue and they are close by: one of them is the US naval super-base, being secretly built in Odessa, not too far from Crimea, also on the Black Sea shore. Read all about it, along with dire futurist’s predictions in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

Another threat is even closer to home: attempts to create a Kosovo-like Muslim enclave in neghboring Kherson and Nikolaev oblasts on the Ukrainian side, populating it by Turks, Crimean Tatar Mejlis and escaped ISIS terrorists. The Odessa Black Sea Gambit story is directly related to the noise around Crimea and clandestine attempts to subvert Nikolaev and Kherson. It is an attempt by the same forces who subverted Ukraine to preserve geopolitical control of the entire Black Sea coast, in order to weaken Russia.

  1. Amazing… this propaganda is at demonic levels.. I’ve been trying to figure out who owns Crimea these days. Didn’t the people vote to return to Russia? Odessa is part of Crimea so wouldn’t they be under Russian aegis? Then how do they wind up with the criminal from Georgia as their leader? And the attacks on the water and electricity… these are acts of war but they did not receive counter attack? I think I lost the thread somewhere.


    • Huh? How’s Odessa a part of Crimea?
      Suggest you read ESR8 Black Sea Gambit where all is explained:

      As to why there was no response for electricity and water blockades, I’ll talk about that in Crimean Agenda.


    • Sorry, Paleo. I seem to recall you did read Black Sea Gambit. Did you see the maps indicating where Odessa is located in relation to Crimea?
      I’m adding a Black Sea map to this post, where you can see Crimea and Odessa locations. The reason I didn’t previously is because it’s hard to find a map with Crimea marked as part of Russia.


  2. Sigh. These countries have got to be the most convoluted real estate on the globe. Sorry, Teacher😦
