Crimean Tatars (Crimean Tatar: Qırımtatar) or Crimeans (Crimean Tatar: Qırım, Qırımlı) are a Turkic ethnic group native to the Crimean peninsula on the northern part of the Black Sea, in modern-day Ukraine. They are one of the three subgroups of the Tatars, the others being the Volga Tatars and the Lipka Tatars. Crimean Tatars speak Crimean Tatar, Turkish, or Russian, depending on locale.

In modern times, in addition to living in Crimea, Ukraine, there is a large diaspora of Crimean Tatars in Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Uzbekistan, Western Europe, the Middle East and North America, as well as small communities in Finland, Lithuania, Russia, Belarus and Poland.

Famous quotes containing the word people:

    If the national security is involved, anything goes. There are no rules. There are people so lacking in roots about what is proper and what is improper that they don’t know there’s anything wrong in breaking into the headquarters of the opposition party.
    Helen Gahagan Douglas (1900–1980)
