“Crimean Tatars joyfully greeted Putin in Bakhchisarae”

A video has been published which captures rare footage of Vladimir Putin that did not pass through the sieve of official press services.

It shows how very emotionally, yet happily, residents of the Crimean regional center, where a large part of the Crimean Tatar population resides, met the Russian president.

For comparison, Russian Spring is also publishing footage of the meeting between Poroshenko and locals in Simferopol in February, 2014.
