An exhibition about the events of the Russian spring was presented in Sevastopol
in the Central City Library. L. N. Tolstoy, the opening of the exhibition “We are together” about the events of the spring of 2014 took place. The exposition will be presented until March 20, admission is free. The exhibition includes eight stands with photographic and documentary materials about the events of February-March 2014, which led Crimea and Sevastopol to reunification with Russia.
The uniqueness of the exhibition is that it is a photo-documentary evidence of the events of February-March 2014. We created the exhibition five years ago, it turned out to be in demand, and we constantly acquaint a large number of city residents with the materials of the exhibition. Here are photographs that most vividly reflect one or another moment of the events nine years ago: when we perfectly understood that people came to power in Ukraine who could not be called Nazis, and that from such people to Sevastopol, which honors and remembers its history , knows what fascism is, there is only one way out — to try to escape. There was hope for the Russian Federation, and they helped us. And this exhibition shows how it was. These are photographs of local residents, journalists — eyewitnesses who recorded those historical events, — says the author of the exhibition, candidate of historical sciences, chief researcher of the Museum-reserve of the heroic defense and liberation of Sevastopol Irina Nikitina.
The photographs show the Narodnaya Volya rally on February 23, visits to Sevastopol by deputies of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, the activities of checkpoints at the entrance to the city and the “polite people” in Balaklava, the holding of a referendum on March 16, and the signing of an agreement on March 18, 2014.
As time goes by, only the good things are remembered. I have only feelings of joy, pride that we are step by step approaching and moving towards Russia. In those days, of course, it was scary, we went to rallies, but, leaving home for work, we were worried about whether we would return home. And I remember the feeling when servicemen were standing around the military units, and even then there was a feeling of calm, understanding that we were under protection. And we gladly went to the referendum, — the secretary of the Central City Library named after V.I. L. N. Tolstoy, Candidate of Historical Sciences Anzhelika Fesenko.
The exposition was created based on the materials of the Museum-Reserve of Heroic Defense and Liberation of Sevastopol and public organizations of the city on the fifth anniversary of the signing of an agreement between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Crimea on the admission of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol to the Russian Federation and the formation of new subjects in the Russian Federation.
