- A poll suggests Crimea should maintain its current Ukrainian identity
- The instability around the area opens different possibilities
- An independent Crimea is the worst solutions according to the voters
As tense as the rope has become, no one wants to rip it. The crisis in Ukraine and the movements of Russian forces on the peninsula have inspired a ranking on the future of Crimea. The winning option for voters is that the Autonomous Republic maintains its current status as part of the Ukraine.
The recently unstable situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea leaves room for any outcome. Ukraine's Prime Minister, Sergei Axionov, is collaborating with the Russians in a series of political maneuvers to further influence the high command of Marine Forces of Ukraine (MFU) in the area. The weakness of the Ukrainian interim political forces encourages this type of movement. Denis Berezovsky, Admiral of the MFU, has been the first of the authorities of the peninsula to approach the Russians, but so far has not been successful.
A Result without a Discussion
The collaboration between the Russian and Crimean authorities is as strong as the long and common history of the two states. Though this does not seem to have an effect on the results of the ranking regarding the future of the Autonomous Republic, as they have voted for Crimea to keep its Ukrainian identity. While it is true that the second most voted option is a return to the Russian sphere of influence, it is important to note the tremendous difference in points between the two: about 95% of the votes support the remainder of Crimea as part of the Ukraine, whereas only 5% support the merge of Crimea to Russia.
More significant is the unattractive rising the possibility of an independent Crimea. Less than 1% of online voters in the ranking believe that it was an improvement on the current situation.
