Enrolment into the institutions of labour reserve system as a factor of deformation of the sex-age structure of the population of collective farm villages
This article is devoted to the study of certain aspects of the population processes in thepost-war Ukrainian villages. The article contains the analysis of the government measures on enrolment into the institutions of the labour reserve system, organization of their functioning, social demur of the enrolled population, as well as identification of consequences of the state training and mobilization policy. The attention is drawn to the fact that the demographic problems of the modern Ukrainian villages and the demographic degradation of certain rural areas is based on the historical determinant. Among the factors that were present in the population processes of the Ukrainian village, it has to bepointed out the factors of the campaigns of training and labour mobilizations arranged by the government. It is underlined the involuntary nature of the enrolment into the labour reserve training institutions. Special attention is paid to the steady tendency to the decrease of performance indices and non-performance of plans of mobilizing the youth for training. It is noted that these campaigns were always accompanied by the issues of social adaptation of the enrolled population. Social demur is expressed in the wide range of countermeasures. Significant turnover of students and young workers remained one of the main problems of the mobilization. Escapes were typical both for schools and future industrial enterprises. Since the youth and collective farm workers were recruited in the coal and metallurgic industries as well as in the building sector of the heavy industry, the enrolment was realized mainly at the expense of the male employable farmers. Due to this their share in the collective farms was drastically reduced. Mobilizations drained the villages of the most important resource – youth, which adversely affected the further development of the whole agricultural sector. The consequences of these government actions were manifested in significant decrease of the rural population both due to the mobilizations and the increase of the rate of urban extension. The analysis of these actions allows to emphasize the critical slowdown of the process of reproduction of the rural population and deep deformation of its sex-age structure.

Since the foundation of Sevastopol it was built as a fortress on the southern borders of the Russian Empire and the base of the Russian military of the Black sea fleet. Besides, in his surroundings – in Chersonese the Grand Prince of Vladimir was baptized and hence Christianity and the Byzantine culture spread throughout Russia. In this regard, already by the middle of XIX century in Sevastopol, Balaklava and its surroundings were 7 churches of the military Department, 7 of the diocesan offices, first-class Balaclava St. George monastery and two monasteries.

«Let there be light to you every stone»: the views on the postmortal fate Greeks in the Northern Black Sea Region (based on the epigraphic sourсes)
This article analyzes the reflection in the epitaphs of ancient cities in the Northern Black Sea Region views in the postmortal fate of man. It is known that the perception of existence beyond the grave gradually changed. In the archaic and classical periods partially prevailed pessimistic view of the afterlife. In Hellenistic times widely distributed customs associated with the glorification of the dead. Finally, in Roman times glorification becomes widespread. If the heroes were previously only oykists and brave soldiers, in the first century AD, each family honor their dead, as spiritual guardians. For the characters of special monuments erected in their honor sacrifices. In the northern Black Sea coast these processes are reflected in the different types of sites, including epitaphs. Epitaph to a mass material. Therefore, they show not only the traditions of the polis, but also on the individual views of the authors. Attention is drawn to the fact that the Northern Black Sea colonies typical of practically contemporaneously with metropolitan evolution of views on the afterlife. epitaphs from Olbia and cities of Bospor classical time, with some exceptions, laconic. Hellenistic inscriptions also increasingly turning to personality rights, many epitaphs provide hope for a blissful fate of the deceased. An interesting contrast to the epitaphs of Chersonesus epitaphs Olbia and cities of the Bosporus. Hellenic glorification of the dead, of course, affected the Chersonesus, it was evidenced by the many forms of tombstones.

Life and literary heritage of Sevastopol military doctor N.I. Zakrevskiy on the pages of the magazine «Marine Collection»
The article deals with the biography and the creative heritage of the little-known military doctor who served in Sevastopol in the 30-60s of the XIX century - Nikifor Ivanovich Zakrevskiy. The analyzed memoirs of N. I Zakrevskiy are published in the journal «Marine Collection» in 60 years of XIX century. This publication is one of the most important sources of studying of the development of specific spheres of life of the investigated historical period. This is because the periodicals at all times served as the most massive and quick source of information. They contained a wealth of material for study and scientific analysis of the most important events in the history of the Russian Empire, including that of the regional specifics. The object of research is the scientific legacy of Sevastopol military doctor N. I. Zakrevskiy, who wrote the memoirs describing life in Sevastopol in 1830s. The notes of surgeon Nikifor Ivanovich Zakrevskiy published in the pages of «Marine Collection» is a valuable source for the history of the Crimea and Sevastopol in 1830. The author was a witness of formation and development of the Black Sea Fleet in difficult conditions. N. I. Zakrevskiy with citizens of Sevastopol survived the «plague» in 1830, and participated in important strategic sea voyages in the Mediterranean warships such as «Erivan», «The Standard». During 20 years he worked as a town doctor, he was active involved in the formation of seamen, He contributed a lot to the Sevastopol naval library, where in 1833 he was working as a librarian. The results of the study will allow to expand the historiographical base of Crimean Studies. Unfortunately, in the memoirs of N. I. Zakrevskiy there are no episodes that describe the progress of the Crimean War, the first defense of Sevastopol 1854-1855. Without this information it is impossible to recreate the memories of author’s life. In addition, the continuation of the memoirs could be an important source for the history of Sevastopol during the Crimean War. Thus, the notes of urban military doctor N. I. Zakrevskiy are limited by description of the city, its residents, the Navy only in 1830.

The notes by Lady resident near the Alma: The South-Western Crimea in the work of the anonymous author
Because of the Crimean War (1853–1856) the interest to the Crimean history was increasing. It was the time when some new historical sources appeared. The writing of anonymous author, devoted to the description of the peninsula in 1840-s, was one of them. The references of that work are traced in scientific journals and indexes of XIX–XXI centuries. The assumptions about the authorship of the work were made. It is suggested that the notes could be written by Mrs. Andrew Neilson who was wife of sultana Anne Neilson’s brother from Edinburg. But it is still possible that it was some generalized character of Crimean writer. Mrs. Neilson spent 9 years in the Crimea and learned a lot about the peninsula. She wrote about visits made to the Crimean villages and cities by her, including Inkerman and Sevastopol. The extracts, consisted the information about South-Western Crimea, were analyzed. Mrs. Andrew Neilson paid attention to local antiquities. Chersonese is
described as ruined city, Inkerman as «cave city» and Balaclava as Greek city with Genoese fortress. The Notes are special by form and description. They were not written day by day, it is conclusive work of living in the Crimea. The notes of Lady are not new for the Crimean historians, but they still need to be translated from English. The new evidence of the anonymous author may be used in the reconstruction of the historical processes that have taken place in the Crimea in the XIX century.

Gasprinsky's personal collection of periodicals due to which the editor of the newspaper «Terdjiman» published the chronicle of everyday life and international news in his edition. Material for internal news for the newspaper was written with the assistance of the leading press of the Russian Empire, which received a boost after the reforms of the 60 – 70's of 19 century. The chronological framework of this research covers the period from 1883 to 1905. It was the time of publication of the first bilingual Crimean Tatar periodical – the newspaper «Terdjiman», before turning into a daily edition, published only in Crimean Tatar. Sourcebase of the research is a set of information notes and reprints, placed in the section «Vnutrenniye izvastiya» («Internal News»), «Razniye vesti» («Miscellaneous News»). However, due to incomplete set of newspaper «Terdjiman» stored in collection of the Memorial Museum of I.Gasprinsky, the main goal was to select periodicals which were the most frequently mentioned by I.Gasprinsky. Among such publications for the research was selected the following: the leading government periodicals of capital, reprinted in «Terdjiman», as well as the leading provincial press of Kazan, Ufa, Orenburg, Tashkent. The materials of these periodicals were reprinted by I. Gasprinsky more often than other publications. In the result, the following periodicals were chosen as the main objects: capital – «Birjeviye vedomosti», «Pravitelstveniy vestnik», «Moskovskiye vedomosti», «Novoye vremya», «Novosti», «Moskovskiy listok, «Svet», «Ruskiye vedomosti», «Ruskiy vestnik», provincial – «Voljskiy vestnik», «Vostochnoye obozreniye», «Kavkaz», «Kazanskiy listok», «Kaspiy»; local – «Krim», «Sevastopolskiy listok», «Yalta». The funds of Memorial Museum of Ismail Gasprinsky, where only part of Tatar periodicals included in the personal collection of periodicals of I.Gasprinsky was saved, were also researched. The development of Russian periodicals of that time and its growth in the late 19 – early 20 centuries had an enormous impact on the social and cultural life of the country. Russian periodic press is extremely important in the formation and functioning of the «Terdjiman». The material reprinted from Russian newspapers is important, because it informed the readers about the life of Muslims, not only in Russia but the whole world. It introduced Muslims of Crimea with their problems and successes of their counterparts living not only in their country, but in foreign countries as well.
