This study has been produced for the purpose and with the hope of furthering the dialogue on the importance of cultural identities in development processes. The key premise is that it is crucial encouraging people in building on their personal human experiences and values, defining their requirements and dealing with them to find the apposite satisfactory solutions. But often, the self-determination opportunities depend on the power of identity in the socio-political system. So, for example, the pervasive and persistent Russian-Soviet strength of mind in Crimea plays the main role in its historic context of multi-ethnic coexistence and it implies a strong influence on the cultivation of the individual dispositions as well as the creation of constant tension between the different ethnics. However the recent local UNDP experiences are proving that peace, stability and respect for cultural differences are possible when people work together for solving common problems concerning their life.
