The author researchs a wide range of consequences of migration movement in the Crimean region in thecontext of the Crimean Tatar migrations in the 60-s of the 19th century. The article touches upon the economic,demographic and cultural development of the peninsula and its habitants.Emigration movement of Crimean Tatars began at the end of the 19th century, when Crimea became apart of the Russian Empire. The largest peak of this movement was reached at the beginning of the 1860s. Atthis time a significant part of the Crimean Tatar population left their homeland and migrated to the territoriesof the Ottoman Empire.Mass emigration of the indigenous population of Crimea fundamentally influenced on many spheres oflife in the region. Decline of agriculture and labor shortages in practically all territory of Crimea was one ofthe first results of the mass migration of Crimean Tatar population. The utter devastation of the region, especiallyits central and northern parts, was found out some time after the mass migrations from Crimea.Mass emigration influenced not only on the development of economy and demography of the Crimeanregion, but also on the fate of migrants and their compatriots who remained in their native land.The subsequent fate of emigrating Crimean Tatars was very diverse. Some of them didn’t migrate to newterritories because of their death on the sea route from the Crimea. Many of migrants became ravaged andimpoverished because of exile. As a result some of emigrants returned empty-handed back to their homeland.

Five governors until his appointment held positions that allowed them to some extent to meetwith the Crimean affairs.The analysis shows that the trends in the Taurida province corresponded empire-wide. Continued to existin the practice of appointing as governor of people who do not have administrative experience. Level of educationgovernors left much to be desired. Among all the governors of Taurida study period there were no witha legal background. It is the study of jurisprudence was considered optimal for officials occupying senior administrativepositions.

The article examines the organization and activities of the gendarmerie of Taurida Governorate in thefirst half of the XIX century. Special attention was paid to the reasons of the formation of the firstgendarme units on the Crimean peninsula. The structure of the gendarmerie throughout the State and theTauride province in particular had been analyzed. The staff of the political police and it financing had beenrepresented. The requirements for candidates to serve in the Corps of Gendarmes had been identified. Themost vivid episodes of participation of the political police in maintaining the public order had beenselected. The activities on the eve of the Crimean War 1853-1856 have been separately marked. An attemptto determine the role of the gendarmerie in the historical process in the Crimea and Northern Tavria wasmade. The Special Corps of Gendarmes was the uniformed security police of the Russian Empire in the19th and early 20th centuries. Its main responsibilities were law enforcement and state security. Theresponsibilities of the Gendarmes also included the execution of court orders, pursuit of fugitives, riotcontrol, and detainment of «unusual» criminals. Gendarmes could also be assigned to assist local police andofficials. Following the 1825 revolt, the new tsar, Nicholas I, created the office of the Chief of Gendarmesin July 1826 and appointed General Count Alexander Benkendorf to it; all of the Gendarmes weresubordinate to the Chief. Benkendorf was also appointed Executive Director of the newly created ThirdSection of the Imperial Chancellery, although the office of the Head of the Third Section was not formallymerged with Chief of Gendarmes until 1839. In 1827, the Gendarmerie was transformed into the SpecialCorps of Gendarmes, under the Chief of Gendarmes.

Not better for yourself, my friend, turn...: reply to a review of N. I. Hrapunov
The article is a response to the biased and incompetent review to the monograph of Vladimir Kalinovsky,by N. I. Hrapunov, an employee of Institute of Oriental Studies (Simferopol). The reviewer, not being anexpert in the church history, is trying to criticize the book’s shortcomings, mostly imaginary, in an instructivetone. The answer justifies the inappropriateness of such an approach. The desire of the reviewer to try tocriticize the monograph once again has the opposite effect – N. I. Hrapunov demonstrates his ignorance of therules of spelling of the Russian language and a complete lack of knowledge about church terminology.Devising a research questions independently of the author, Nikita Igorevich "successfully" justifies theirinsolvency. Claims that V. Kalinovsky ignores references to the notes of the British travelers to the Crimea, onthe translation of which the reviewer has spent quite a few years (and by no way related to the church localstudies of Crimea) are apparently bordered with the desire of self-promotion. Mentioning the lack of theGerman translation of the Yekaterinburg researcher A. I. Romanchuk among the references, while thereference to the original Russian text of her work is present, is especially hilarious. Accusations towardsmonograph illustrations, presented by a co-author of "A Shirt History of Crimea", known for numerous errors,look anecdotically. In conclusion there were presented a list of reviews of the monograph V. Kalinovsky.

Once again about the sources of the problems and history by the Ottoman possessions in the rimea. Review of dissertation research of O. M. Kournikova "Documentary sources for the history of the ttoman possessions in the Crimea in the XVI – XVIII century"
The dissertation research of O. M. Kournikova "Documentary sources for the history of the Ottomanossessions in the Crimea in the XVI – XVIII century" was analyzed. The structure of the work wasonsistently revealed. The periodization of the Ottoman possessions in the Crimea looks inappropriate. Aissertation defines that it ended in 1783 year, although the Ottomans left the peninsula in 1774. Thegnorance of O.M. Kournikova in historiography questions seems problematic. She mentions the works, notelated to the topic of research, and ignores the significant body of Russian literature of the Soviet and post-Soviet periods. So she refers to the compilation work A. R. Andreev, unrelated to the Ottoman presence in theCrimea, but misses recognized experts’ monographs on the issue. The approach to a dissertation paper sourcess equally strange. It uses only well-known and published documents, including text materials not related tohe subject. Turkish archives with their rich sources were only mentioned, but in no way used. From time toime O.M. Kournikova loses the thread of the narrative and switches to arbitrary questions of history. Thehird chapter of the dissertation "The Ottoman possessions in the territory of the Crimean Peninsula in the XVI XVIII c.", is based only on seven sources. The population figures of Crimean settlements, particularlyangup, given be the researcher, are far from reality. The conclusion of the insolvency of a number ofositions proposed by the author of the dissertation, and the possibility of using the dissertation findings incientific practice, was made.
