Abdureshid Mediev had a short, but bright life

Today marks the 115th anniversary of the publication of the «Vetan Hadimi» newspaper in Karasubazar (Belogorsk). This newspaper was the first in Crimea to reveal the problem of providing peasants with land. Its creator is a Crimean Tatar Abdureshit Mediev. He served as the mayor of Karasubazar and was elected to the State Duma. With his direct participation, a secondary school-rushdie and a Crimean Tatar library were opened in the city, a power station and a house of culture were built, and a water supply network was laid.
