The article of Yu.M. Guseinov is devoted to the policy of the Russian Empire in the Crimean region. In particular, the displacement of the policy of Turkey from the European area on the Caucasian bridgehead is shown. The author doesn’t ignore Ottoman-Crimean aggression from the northwest to Dagestan, which allowed to chop off the waves of Iranian and Turkish invasions from the South-East. Important intermediate bases of fight against Eastern conquerors were also Adygea, Circassia, Karachay, Balkaria, Ossetia, Chechnya and Ingushetia. In this regard it is appropriate to consider the campaign of the Ottoman Turkish troops in Kabarda and their defeat, which, of course, brought untold misery to local peoples, and was met with a decisive rebuff.
Significant place in the article is given to the Russian-Turkish relationships and the role and place of Crimea in it. As the Crimean region was at the investigated time, part of Turkey it once had been involved in all conflicts, where a party was Port.
Thus, international standing of the Crimea was motivated by the foreign policy of Turkey as the Crimea was under protectorate of the Ottoman Empire. Not infrequently the Crimean Ottomans made plundering inroads on neighbours, however the majority of them was not a success. One of the most unsuccessful campaigns of gereis was the campaign to Kabarda in 1708.
