In the five years since the Crimean Spring, significant changes have taken place on the peninsula. Thanks to multi-billion investments in the Crimean economy, its industrial production has doubled. New roads have been built, as well as the Crimean Bridge and Simferopol Airport. In 2018, 6.8 million tourists visited Crimea — more than in the entire post-Soviet history. But most importantly, the Crimeans have a feeling of security and confidence in the future.
