Crimea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1502 words)
The Crimea (officially Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Russian transliteration: Avtonomnaya Respublika Krym, Russian: Автономная Республика Крым, Ukrainian: Автономна Республіка Крим,, pronounced cry-MEE-ah in English) is a peninsula and an autonomous republic of Ukraine on the northern coast of the Black Sea.
In 1954, it was transferred by the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev to the Ukrainian SSR as a gesture to mark the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Pereyaslav between Ukrainian Cossacks and Russia.
With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Crimea became part of the newly independent Ukraine, a situation resented by a large part of its mainly Russian population and a cause of tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
