I was in Crimea 3 years ago and all of the resorts there were controlled by the Russian mafia, they've ruined the promenades by dividing them into private sections. It's a very interesting place to visit, but I wouldn't advise anybody to go there now that it's controlled by fascist Russia.

Its no surprise that most tourists who visited Crimea before are afraid to visit Crimea now, since they are now afraid of the Russian thugs who have infested Crimea.

Kolkhoznik is somebody who works on a collective farm, used to mean a Russiam in this case.
Moskal and katsap are mildly offensive names which Ukrainians call Russians, like English people call the French frogs or Germans krauts.
