Peaceful side of Crimea

, March 12, 2014

A woman pushes a pram along the embankment in the Black Sea resort town of Alushta, Ukraine, on March 11. Ukraine's Crimean peninsular evokes in many Russians and citizens of the former Soviet Union memories of summer holidays in the resorts and sanatoriums along its subtropical Black Sea coast. Crimea is also the place from where Christianity spread throughout what was then called Kievan Rus', a federation of Slavic tribes that later became Russia.  Reuters/Thomas Peter
