After the Soviet collapse, Crimea became part of Ukraine, despite the predominance of Russian-speaking population. Came to power in Ukraine in early 2014, the opposition began to conduct large-scale reforms, one of which was the almost complete eradication of the Russian language, which caused mass protests in the Crimea. Representatives of local authorities with the support of Russia on March 16 held a referendum in which almost 97 percent (in Sevastopol 95%) voted for secession of the Peninsula from Ukraine and its joining Russia. March 18 at a ceremony in Moscow was signed the document about the official entry of the Republic of Crimea and city of Sevastopol a part of Russia and assign them the status of independent subjects. The government of many countries has not supported these changes, as the referendum in General, and still considers the Crimea and Sevastopol a part of Ukraine.
