[WIP] Crimean Karaites or rather Crimean Karaimites?

By Vadim Dovganyuk

[The following blog post is a work in progress and will be expanded as more information is collected and verified.] As a descendant of Crimean Karaites, I often have to face ignorant people who state that we’re Turkic, not Jewish. Beyond the fact that it’s offensive, there is also the fact that the whole Khazar…

One of the facts regarding the Ukrainian participation in Eurovision this year has likely been noticed by you already, Ukraine will not participate this year.
