2014 developments[edit]

On March 18, 2014, the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol were joined by treaty to the Russian Federation.[5] Sevastopol was designated a city of federal significance.[5] Much of the international community and the Ukrainian government do not recognize Sevastopol's accession to Russia and consider Sevastopol an integral part of Ukraine.[6]
