The Crimean expedition was arranged following instructions from President Putin. At a meeting of Board of Trustees of the Russian Geographical Society that celebrates 170 years in 2015, Vladimir Putin said that projects of the Russian Geographical Society form people's attitude to their motherland.

This year, the Russian Geographical Society has already conducted a number of expeditions. In honor of the 170th anniversary of the organization and the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, a group of Crimean residents with the support of the Crimean branch of the Russian Geographical Society went on a tourist expedition "On the route of the Silk Road." The group ascended to the summit of Chatyr-Dag Mount to hoist the flags of the Russian Geographical Society, the Republic of Crimea and Russia on top of the mountain in honor of the reunification of the peninsula with Russia.
