    if we go by the U.S.A’s logic…. it was illegal for the Ukraine to leave the USSR in the first place….Nice country… thanks Mr Putin! for sparing them of the bloodbath and deaths that the West had planned for them !!! Russia must become stronger or the Western destruction and takeovers will continue. Playing the Western blame game with bombs, factions, ethnicity’s,etc. Has continued to be an effective game plan for the West.Many great countries have fallen. unfortunately, the fake State of Israel is to blame also. These so called Jews cannot really be Jews, or God would have smited and destroyed them many times over for their sins. they were given(took) their promised land yet, by death and destruction they want the world.

      You must be sick. I am from Czech republic and i am so glad my country leaved SSSR. EU is not perfect, it makes some stupid restrictions, but we can live much better life in much better conditions and infrasturue and everytjing else. When i see photos form Russia i see only old dying cities of awful of block of flats where live poor people. other pictures show other hand of that, very rich people in expnsive residences and cars. In EU there is much stronger middle class of people who have everything they need to live happy life. Crimea will die in hands of russian politics who still live in cold war.

      1. The USSR collapsed and couldn’t keep its vassals under its heels–Ukraine left because the weakened USSR allowed it to go.

      2. Putin is a dictator. Free countries do not keep one man in power for life. You Russians are addicted to bosses like cattle are addicted to the farmer for their food.

      3. Israel has nothing to do with Russia, Ukraine, Crimea, Russia’s widespread corruption, or the craphole countries of the world being crapholes. Blaming Jews is anti-Semitic nonsense spewed by idiots.

      4. Russia is beautiful. It’s people are soulful. You have a great future if you can throw off the shackles of the bosses and the oligarchs and embrace liberty. Please do.

        I don’t think you know what a dictator is….he is elected by the vast majority of the people living there. Were there manipulations? Sure, probably like in any country in the world, but still he has huge support in Russia. And why shouldn’t he? Russia is growing strong economicaly and is doing much much better then it did in USSR and during Yeltsin. There is corruption, but nowhere near as there was during Yeltsin. You can’t call every politician who is not pro-west a dictator. Franklin D. Roosevelt was 12 years in office, up until his death, does that make him a dictator? Because free countries do not keep one man in power for life right? It doesn’t matter that Roosevelt was a great president who helped US recover during the Great Depression….

          Once upon a time, there was a nation with a long cultural tradition which, after a decade of turmoil and instability, took a bait and voted for a certain Austrian with a funny mustache who promised prosperity and reestablishment of the nation´s former pride and self-confidence. The results are well known.
          History repeats.
          BTW, rouble lost 20% against autumn 2013. Russians should get ready for expensive imports (anything from bananas to technologies).
          Russia under Putler chose (obsolete) guns instead of butter. It is an average Russian who will pay for this (after he/she sobers up from the current “ah-how-mighty-we-are” high).

    Oh! Can be a beatiful place… But, now, thanks to Putin, they will lost all the foreing tourism.
    Why? Simply because, for travel to Ukraine you don’t need visa; while for Russia yes (and it’s hard, slowly, and expensive).
    Thanks Mr. Putin, you makes growing the turism to Spain.

    Beautifull Russian landscape !!

  4. Jim Beam says:

    If I had no clue about location, I’d say that these photos are from Spain!

  5. Indy says:

    Nice place, which has lost all its foreign tourism in one night and will never get it back, until Crimea gets out of international no man’s land (not Ukrainian, not Russian on the international point of view).

    Crimean tourism will feel the pain, very soon and for long !

    This is last time when i was on E.R. site. It is sad, i’d love all this old USSR stuff, all this abandoned objects and simple Russians ordinary live… but now I have enough of this propaganda, what you done its not a joke & it’s not funny.

  7. Billy says:

    Nice place. Wait till the shooting war starts. It will not be so pretty with bullet holes and bomb craters.

  8. Polina says:

    It is only South Beach Kryma.Krym much more diverse and interesting

  9. john says:

    No wonder Russia took it back.

    Chyort! Somebody has stolen my contribution to this discussion! Russians?!?!

  12. albo says:

    Beautiful. No wonder Russia stole it.

    What the Crimea is…..is not yours

  14. Amberbock Mike O'Malley says:

    Crimea had the freedom to democratically join the Great Russian Federation. They will never have the same liberty to vote to leave.

    • Billy says:

      Here is some news. It is not “Democratic” when there are thousands of Russian Spetsnaz in your country taking over all the infrastructure, with a huge a Russian army having war games at your boarder.

      • Will says:

        Unless people were forced at gunpoint to vote one way or another I think it probably was democratic. Those same Spetsnaz forces were probably handing out Russian flags demanding people wave them and chant too right? Say what you want, there were a whole lot of people who wanted to secede and they got what they wanted.

  15. Jeffery Haas says:

    Looks like a bunch of folks who have no business wearing bikinis. Not too different from America, except the Venice Boardwalk.
    There you will find many people who look wonderful with tiny swimsuits.
    Thus most of America, and most of Crimea, is not Venice Beach.

    PS: Your sand is full of rocks, too :-)

  16. PKN says:

    Russia stole nothing, Crimea wanted to join Russia. Only the Americans and a few fools in Europe are on their hind legs about this. Wake up, they voted for this, why even bother arguing.


  17. Johny_D says:

    another proof – what is left unattended like Crimea ..by Ukraine… is subject to pilferage from Poo

  18. Jean says:

    What de Krim really is. The land where my ancestors have passed on their road to western europe (nobody knows how much stayed along the route) AND the biggest problem: Looking at the pictures I had must stay on de Krim also.

  19. zipp says:

    Looks great, might book a week away.

  20. JacobPG1 says:

    Now you all see why Russians have been obsessed with Crimea going back for hundreds of years. Most of Russia is landlocked, cold and flat, while Crimea looks more like a Greek Island. In fact, Crimea was probably the only part of Ukraine that was worth taking.
