I still own Ukrainian passport with Crimean registration though, so when the Crimean referendum was announced to be actually happening and the date was rushed to March 16, I made sure to book my airfare to Crimea.
I felt it’s my moral obligation to go there and vote for my country not to be separated, to vote for its peace and unity.
I booked an airfare to Crimea two weeks in advance and was very excited to go. My excitement started to fade away when earlier this week I checked the online timetable at Simferopol airport. I couldn’t believe my eyes. All flights were being cancelled one by one except flights going to and coming from Moscow.
