Tauric Chersonese Reserve to Become Russian Federal Object

The reserve Tauric Chersonese in Crimea will become a federal object.

      In addition to that, Tauric Chersonese will be included in the Uniform State Register of RF Cultural Heritage and the List of Especially Valuable Cultural Heritage Sites of Russia. 

After annexation of the Crimea to the Russian Federation in March, 2014 the Tauric Chersonese reserve was under the jurisdiction of local authorities.

      Workers of culture and science criticized the dismissal of its director Andrey Kulagin and his replacement with the archpriest Sergius Khaluta of the Simferopol Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church. They expressed concerns that research activities might be stopped in Tauric Chersonese, since its director is a priest and not a museum professional.

      The reserve is located not far from Sevastopol. Chersonese was founded by ancient Greeks in the 5th century B.C. and for two thousand years was a large political, economic and cultural center of the Northern Black Sea Coast. The city and its architecture monuments were registered in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2013.
