Russian and Soviet propaganda tried to create the myth of the "impregnability" of Sevastopol - a kind of "Russian stronghold" on the Black Sea, which never bowed its head to the conquerors. However, the defense of the main base of the Black Sea Fleet has never been successful in history. Two large-scale defenses - in 1854-55 during the Crimean War and in 1941-42 during World War II - ended in heavy defeats. And during the Ukrainian Revolution of 1917-21, the city was easily and repeatedly taken by almost everyone.
