Crimea reunification photo exhibition held at Russian House in New Delhi

New Delhi:
Coming on the heels of Russian President Vladimir Putin winning a landslide victory in the Presidential elections held in Russia on March 18, 2024 and a simultaneous voting exercise conducted in India’s capital New Delhi, a photo exhibition was organized at the Russian House in New Delhi to mark the 10th anniversary of Crimea’s reunification with Russia, which they call as Crimea’s return to its 'native harbor'. It was visited by representatives of the expert community, diplomatic corps, media and students.

The exhibition was opened by Minister Counsellor, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Russian Embassy in India, Roman Babushkin, and Director of the Russian House in New Delhi, Oleg Osipov. Guest of Honour was Member of the Supreme Advisory Council of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly Dalbir Singh, who was an observer from India at the referendum in Crimea in 2014.

In his address DCM Russia House Roman Babushkin said, ‘The exhibition is devoted to the significant strides Crimea has made towards development and prosperity, transforming from a neglected Ukrainian province into a thriving region of Russia. It explores the journey of the Peninsula and its people, showcasing their resolve and the tangible benefits of reunification, including the improvement of economic, investment and cultural life through concerted efforts.’

He said, ‘This commemoration of Crimea’s 10th anniversary of being part of Russia again is not only a reflection of the past but also an invitation to consider the ongoing complexities and challenges that continue to shape the region's future.’

Other speakers talked about the reasons that prompted Crimeans to vote for joining Russia, as well as the main milestones in the development of Crimea over the last decade.

A separate part of the exhibition was dedicated to the tragic events of Euromaidan, believed to be sponsored by the West, which led to the coup in Ukraine in 2014 and the outbreak of war against the population of Donbass by the Kiev regime.
