«I» continue a cycle of articles about new strategy of Crimea… Recently has jumped out on affairs in Crimea. «Sevastopol-Balaklava-Yalta-Alushta» was passed on a typical route and terribly was upset. Many years I communicate with business, political, scientific and journalistic elite of Crimea and in a unison from it I see, how fine and magic Crimea slowly, but steadily degrades.
