  • The Crimean peninsula is connected on the northwest to the mainland by the “Perekop Isthmus”, a 5-mile- (8-km-) wide strip of land that has been the site of numerous battles for the control of Crimea.
  • Between Crimea and the mainland to the north lies Svyash (“Putrid Sea”), a network of shallow inlets that is separated from the Sea of Azov by the Arabat Spit, a 70-mile- (113-km-) long sandbar along the eastern shore of Crimea.
  • The Crimean Peninsula was annexed by the Russian Federation in 2014 and since then has been administered as two Russian federal subjects - the Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol.
