Shoigu Gives Tour of Sevastopol: Young General Knows All About the Legendary Defense of the City

The Siege of Sebastopol

Russian painting: 1854 Siege of Sevastopol, Crimean War. 

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, who also happens to be the President of Russian Geographic Society, takes journalists on a tour of newly restored Sevastopol’s legendary Konstantinovskaya Battery Fort. It was built by Russia 240 years ago and it withstood two sieges of Sevastopol. But it took the ‘independent’ Ukraine, ruled by greedy oligarchs and foreign interests, only 20 years to nearly demolish it. With it, the ancestral memory and true history would have been destroyed as well. It all changed in 2014, when Crimea returned to Russia. After 3-years long massive reconstruction, the fortress is like new. Take a look:

**Kiev often laments that ‘Crimea left.’ To that the response should be that Crimea didn’t simply leave, it escaped — it ran away as fast as its feet would carry it!

  1. Wow! It looks so much better now. It is a very impressive restoration. Very nice to see General Shoigu so excited to talk about the fort, too. 🙂

  2. Crimea is developing very fast. Restoration of Crimean ports and shipyards and building of railroad bridge will make rimea real Russian naval fortress. I hope they will soon have friendly Novorussia on their north border instead of crazy Ukraine.

    I see this beautiful restoration, the Donbass Ukraine War crimes convictions & the earlier completion of Crimean bridge as testimony to the ongoing defeat of the Deep/Dark state in Ukraine.
