The Unforgettable March 2014: How Russian ‘Polite Men’ Saved Crimea
Amazing Moments Captured in Pics!
Following the Kiev Maidan and anti-government coup in Ukraine, in March 2014 the popular referendums in Crimea and Sevastopol voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and re-join Russia.
Within days a massive number of photos and videos appeared on the Internet. They depicted Crimean residents and children enthusiastically hugging and smiling at people with guns and in balaclavas.
Dubbed ‘the polite men’, Russian servicemen became a highly desirable addition to wedding and kids’ photos. The fashion to take selfies with the Polite Men spread through Crimea like fire.
Quite a few images depicted the Polite Men with happy children and cats.
Indeed the number of such unrehearsed, spontaneous images, including cats, was so great that grateful residents made a statue commemorating them. The statue depicts Polite Man with a gun and a young girl handing him flowers; at their feet is a cat. This statue stands in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea:
The remarkable presence of the Polite Men in unmarked uniforms, or the ‘little green men,’ as they were also called, made a miracle possible. While a short distance away, Ukraine burned and violence spread throughout, not a single shot was fired and not a single casualty took place in Crimea. The Polite Men were just there: unobtrusively, quietly. They didn’t interfere, but they watched over the peninsula, while people voted and later, while Crimea transitioned peacefully to Russia.
Also, a large collection of these photos in this video, made in March 2014: ‘Finally Russians Came to Crimea’

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.

Following the February Ukraine coup, on March 16th, 2014, Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and reunite with Russia. 95% to 97% voted for reunification, depending on the area. Simultaneously, a referendum whether to accept Crimea and Sevastopol as two new subjects of the Russian Federation took place in Russia. 95% of Russians said ‘yes.’
On March 18-19, Crimea and Sevastopol joined the Russian Federation as two newest subjects. The transition went smoothly and peacefully, not a single shot was fired and only two casualties were registered on both sides, shot by a provocateur Ukrainian sniper sent there to attempt inciting violence (by the old CIA playbook).
At the time, 16,000 Russian troops were stationed in Crimea, based on the Black Sea Fleet Sevastopol base lease agreement with Ukraine. Simultaneously, 20,000 Ukrainian troops were stationed on the peninsula as well. Out of these 20,000, about 18,000 Ukraine troops pledged allegiance to Russia, while only 2,000 chose to leave back to Ukraine. They were allowed to leave peacefully and with dignity.
As a result of professional actions of the Russian troops, fleet and politicians, they received a nickname ‘vezhlivie lyudi’ directly translated as ‘the polite people,’ aka, ‘real gentlemen.’
However, none of that mattered. Russia was accused by the West of aggression against poor, weak Ukraine and annexation of part of Ukraine’s territory, Putin was called Hitler and crippling sanctions were imposed on Russia.
The West supported the bloody ukro-nazi Kiev junta against Russia, Crimea and against the people of Donbass, who were also fighting for their independence from the regime that wanted to take away and rewrite their memory, their history and their way of life. The West also supported ukro-nazis and Ukraine ultra-nationalists in their quest to create a fascist state with thousands of political prisoners, torture, kidnappings and lynching, where the rights of the largest, Russian-speaking part of the population were denied.
The West, together with its stooges in Kiev, did everything to isolate and humiliate Russia and its leaders. Vladimir Putin was always the most visible target. But many others were targeted, as well. For example, in 2015 the Head of the Russian Duma Sergei Naryshkin was illegally denied visa to Helsinki, where he was invited to the anniversary of the Helsinki Accords, of which Russia, as the legal heir to the USSR, was a founding member; The Head of the Soviet of the Federation chamber of the Russian Duma Valentina Matvienko in 2015 was illegally denied USA visa, and was unable to come to New York, where she was invited to speak at the UN General Assembly and at the global inter-parliamentary symposium. The exceedingly ultra-nationalist and Russophobic Poland snubbed Putin for an invitation to the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz – the camp that the Soviet Army liberated along with all of Poland!
For 2 years, Ukraine, US and EU did everything to sabotage and stunt Crimea. In 2014 Kiev ukro-nazis destroyed the Russian-built (like most everything that ever was built in Ukraine) North Crimean Canal, which supplied with badly needed water most of the peninsula, leaving it in dire straits.
In 2015, Ukraine began the food blockade of Crimea; in December 2015 Ukraine, aided by some foreign governments (I will disclose who in the upcoming ESR9: CRIMEAN AGENDA) blew up power lines and left 2.5 million people and the entire peninsula without power during the winter.
Two years later, Russia and Crimea survived all the attempts at humiliation, blockade, attacks and sanctions, emerging with flying colors.
As a matter of fact, Russia’s prestige and clout are the highest they have been since the breakup of the USSR. Putin’s global and all-Russian popularity is through the roof at 90%+ approval. Russia’s Syria operation further advanced this clout, making Russia the one and only go-to peacemaker in the Middle East (read upcoming Syria withdrawal article, ESR5 & ESR7).
Call it karma or justice… Let’s compare that to what has happened in the past 2 years to those who tried to isolate and humiliate Russia and Putin. Obama is a disappointment even to his formerly ardent supporters – and as I predicted last year, democrats will pay dearly for their behavior towards Russia during these elections (more on that in my future US elections prediction). Australian and Canadian PMs, who were nasty to Putin and Russia, are gone (does anyone even remember their names?..). Extremely popular before 2014, Merkel is hated in her own country and abroad, and I project her to gradually lose her remaining support soon.
Ukraine PM Yatsenyuk has 0% approval rating; Poroshenko, who has been drowning his sorrows in vodka, holds no power and is hated just as universally; Ukraine has made a nuisance of itself, always complaining about Russia and begging for handouts, which both Europeans and Americans are sick of hearing.
Someone tweeted me recently that Ukraine filed a complaint with WTO that Russia is preventing them from trading with her. This insane asylum, this ‘idiocracy+’ in Kiev, suddenly woke up to realize that they needed trade with Russia after all, since EU imposed strict quotas on Ukraine imports as their rightful reward for signing the ‘EU association and slavery agreement.’ Ukraine’s complaint to WTO about mean Russia, who doesn’t want to trade with them, comes after Ukraine itself broke all ties with Russia, joined sanctions, blockaded Crimea, banned Russian air traffic and blockaded truck traffic, called Russia aggressor, announced that Ukraine was at war with Russia, threatened Russians and Russian-speakers in Ukraine, and applauded ukro-nazi attacks on Russian embassy and consulates.
Happy Holiday, dear Russians!
Happy Holiday, Sevastopol and Crimea!
Hope the rest of the territories occupied by ukro-nazis and their foreign masters
will also celebrate their liberation soon!
