Abstract

The Crimean Khanate was the last to be destroyed by the Russians among the remnants of the Golden Horde. The Khanate, founded by Hacı Giray Khan in 1441, remained under the auspices of the Ottoman Empire from 1475 until the end of the XVII century. With the loss of power of the Ottoman Empire from the beginning of the XVIII century, its protection over Crimea weakened. In this process, the Russian Empire came out in Eastern Europe as a marked power and reflected its expansion policy to Crimea just like the geography of Turkestan. Especially from 1736, Russian military expeditions began towards Crimea. With the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca in 1774, the Crimean Khanate was forced to secede from the Ottoman Empire and later was annexed by the Russians in 1783. With the Treaty of Jassy in 1792, Ottomans had to accept Crimea’s annexation to Russia.
