Posted by Kris Roman on May 12, 2008

The parade featuring 30 warships, 10 auxiliary and support vessels, and a naval infantry took place in Sevastopol on May 11 on the occasion of the 225th anniversary of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

The Crimea, now an autonomous region within Ukraine, is Russian and a predominantly Russian-speaking territory. Since the 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union, the Crimea has unsuccessfully sought independence from Ukraine. A 1994 referendum in the Crimea supported demands for a broader autonomy and closer links with Russia.
