Crimea has been Russian for centuries.
Its transfer to Ukraine was done by whim, without any justification.
Now it is returned to Russia, and I think it's rather a good thing.
Most of the people there prefer to be part of the Russian Federation, rather than part of a fascist and bankrupt Ukraine.
Who could blame tham?

Even way before first Russo-Turk war, this was Russia and especially as far as administration and cultural zone. Crimea always had a huge ethnic flux due to the fact of being military base and legendary fortress city. The first units of the SS that tried to cross the Perekoff had a sky high casualty rate. The entire delay of the Sevastopol, not only held Turkey from joining in early in the war, but delayed the germans at least 3 months, which was fatal to them. After WW2, there was a huuuge vacuum after invasion and liberation with sieges in-between. The demographic shifts, if any happened after WW2, but before it was clerically handed over to Ukraine.
While I think it makes for some fascinating academic research into how exactly this happened clerically, anyone taking it from there is foolinsh and ignorant of history in general.
