Historical Component of the Crimean Tatar Factor in the Development of Ethno-Political Situation in Crimea
The overall objection of the study is to examine how the ethno-political situation on the peninsula is being influenced by Crimean Tatars. The issue requires a sustainable study of Russia’s policy on the peninsula up to 2015 in accordance with the resettlement dynamics and the security issues. The results anticipated suggest in addition to antecedent conditions, such as centuries-long enemy-image misperceptions and historical grievances, the risk factors for conflict include relative deprivation and the religious, linguistic, and cultural cleavages that are manipulated by the Tatars political elites; historical animosities and structural inequalities within the minority are sustainable source of instability. Therefore, it is inevitable to elaborate the situation so that the further cooperation on the key issues on the peninsula would be possible.
