We observe changes every day, so far Crimea lacks free transport links with the rest of our big country, so there's still some joke, that Crimea has turned into island.
Ukrainian authorities, although talking about the return of the peninsula, act absolutely contrary, introducing entry for citizens of Russia on foreign passports – the vast majority of the population has already received Russian citizenship “Island”, but not yet issued foreign passports; impose export duties, because of which the goods, carried from Ukraine, get more expensive in Crimea; they complicate the border crossing for people, canceling direct trains and buses. By creating all these difficulties, can you inspire people to return to their Ukrainian country's membership?
I heard a discussion of some disgruntled Crimeans, that prices are rising, and salaries not, but this situation is noticeable throughout Russia, and on the other hand, this is a question for employers, who do not want to adapt under current legislation and to pay at least a certain minimum.

In the current situation,, pleases, that people, who are happy with the return to Russia here are much more, and most importantly, that in the Crimea now there is peace and tranquility. We, like all normal people, wish peace to all!
