3/18 OT: Republic of Crimea

The Republic of Crimea (Russian: Республика Крым; Crimean Tatar: Къырым Джумхуриети, Qırım Cumhuriyeti; Ukrainian: Республіка Крим) is apartially-recognized sovereign state that claims the entirety of the Crimean peninsula in the Black Sea, south of Ukraine and west of southern Russia. The country was formed as the reunification of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol—former administrative divisions of Ukraine—into a single united nation. Both regions had previously adopted a joint resolution expressing their intention to declare independence, as well as a resolution expressing their intention to unite with Russia. For this purpose, both governments had called for a referendum which was eventually approved by overwhelming majorities of their respective voters. One day after the referendum, both regions reunited and declared their independence as a single nation. Russia recognized the sovereignty of the newly formed nation the same day.[9] The republic is now expected to join the Russian Federation as a federal subject as expressed by their voters in the aforementioned referendum.[10]

However, the recently installed government of Ukraine, along with most other sovereign states, do not recognize the sovereignty of the Republic of Crimea, nor the reunification of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea with Sevastopol. For all intents and purposes Ukraine still treats each region as a subdivision within Ukrainian territory subject to Ukrainian law.[citation needed]
