This work covers the Crimean crisis of 2014, i.e. the EuroMaidan that started in Kyiv, in November 2013, and that was followed by the Anti-Maidan in the Crimea, and, as a result, the proclamation of independence, as well as the unification of the Crimea with Russia via referendum. Contrary to the views of some experts who argue that the Crimean crisis and the annexation of the Crimea as well as the developments in the aftermath of this annexation could be explained with the reference to foreign policies of Kyiv and Moscow, this thesis argues that local regional dynamics in the form of historical, social, cultural, political and economic structures have played a decisive role in the outbreak and development of the Ukrainian crisis.
