The first record of civilization in the People’s Socialist State of Odeshchyna was that of the Greek colonies of Oblia, Tyras, Niconium, Panticapaeum, and Chersonesus dating to the first millennium BC. As history progresses, the Scythians settled the area later followed by the Sarmatians. Throughout the middle ages the lands were part of the Kievan Rus, the Golden Horde, the Grand Duchy of Lithuanian, and the Crimean Khanate. During the rise of the Ottoman Empire, Odeschyna was conquered but later passed to the hands of the Russian Monarchs during the Russo – Turk wars of the 18th Century. In 1819, the major port of the area and the current capital, Odessa, was declared a free port and remained so until 1859. This led the city and the region to contain an extremely diverse population. In 1905 workers in the city of Odessa rebelled against the monarch Russia and were slaughtered in the streets. The rebellion was famously shown in Sergei Eisenstein’s movie, The Battleship Potemkin.
