The old quote that “history is doomed to repeat itself”, is again proving true today. In light of current events in Crimea, a peninsula in Southern Ukraine which was recently annexed by Russia, we see parallels to a similar conflict in the late 18th century when Russia took possession of Crimea from the Ottoman Empire.
In 1787, Russia’s ruler Catherine II, aka Catherine the Great, visited Southern Ukraine and Crimea with her court and several foreign ambassadors. During the war, the region was devastated and the newly appointed governor, Grigory Potemkin, was charged with the major task of rebuilding and bringing in Russian settlers. As legend has it, Grigory Potemkin, attempting to make things look better than they really were, assembled “Portable Villages”, located on the banks of the Dnieper River. Allegedly, as soon as the barge carrying Catherine II arrived, Potemkin’s soldiers dressed up as happy peasants would appear. Once the barge left, the village was disassembled and rebuilt downstream overnight.
The phrase “Potemkin Village” is used today to describe an elaborate display used to conceal something dilapidated, shoddy or unpleasant in order to deceive and impress others. History was again repeated recently with the “2014 Winter Olympics”, held in Sochi, Russia. The sub-par accommodations in Sochi were described as the latest reincarnation of a Potemkin Village. The initial splendid appearance of high level hotels and facilities were later shown to be deceptive and hiding behind a façade of completed new construction.
