Crimea, the Republic of Kazantip was annexed too

There were people in Crimea who were claiming for their freedom, and were neither the Russians nor the Tatars. The Republic of Kazantip existed long before the referendum, before the annexation. Ephemeral and surreal as its inhabitants, it materialized every year in these days of August on the shores of the Black Sea. But not this year.

The festival of Kazantip was not only the largest and overwhelming rave of Europe (and maybe of the world). It was something more. Every year, in the first two weeks of August on the coast of Crimea, the dream of the people of the party around the world materialized. The Republic of Kazantip, as it was called, was an ephemeral land whose anthem pumped the bass of trance and whose inhabitants were dancing between smoke and lasers, 24 hours a day. The Republic of Kazantip this year is gone, and nobody knows if it will ever return to the Crimea.
