The Albanians in Ukraine (also known as Albantsi, Ukrainian: Албанці) are an ethnic minority group located mainly in Zaporizhia Oblast and Budjak. They descend from Albanian warriors who fought against the Ottoman Empire in the Russo-Turkish wars and were allowed to settle in the Russian Empire in the 18th century. The historical community of Albanians in Ukraine call themselves ga tantë (from ours) and they speak a language si neve (like us). Their ancestors came to Ukraine in the 18th and 19th centuries. Yet, they trace their ancestry to tosk Albanians who in the 16th century settled in the eastern Bulgaria (Despotate of Dobruja) along with Gagauz people. The arrival of the Albanians was connected to the Russo-Turkish War of 1768-1774. During this war some Orthodox Christian Albanians revolted against the power of the Ottoman Empire. After their rebellion initially failed many joined up with the Russian fleet which was on its Aegean Expedition. At the end of the war about 1,700 Albanian fighters and family members went to the Russian Empire. In 1811 Albanians established their own settlement of Karakurt in Budzhak near the Bolhrad city. After the Albanians in Odessa there are two streets Great Arnaut Street and Little Arnaut Street. Due to defeat of Russia in the Crimean War, many Albanians moved to the east Ukraine in 1861 and resettled there. It was not until the 20th century that the Albanians of Ukraine realized that they were Albanians. At some point of time in Odessa existed the Albanian cultural center “Rilindja” (Renaissance).

Bi post atıyorum hemen muhalefet oluyorsunuz. Arkadaşım size ne ? Ben müslüman Türk'ü de hıristiyan Türk'ü de kardeş biliyorum. Sırf müslüman olduğu için Ar*p'a yahut k*rde kardeş demem ben. Benim için en üstün şey Türk olmalarıdır. Çünkü bize hiç bir müslüman el uzatmaz iken Türk kardeşlerimiz el uzattı. Müslümanlık çok ayrı bir konu.. Onu hiç derinlemesine konuşmayacağım. Lakin ben Türk olup hıristiyan olan Gagauz Türk'ü kardeşimi seçiyorum, müslüman olan Ar*p'ı seçmiyorum dediğim vakit kimse bana laga luga yapamaz. Git ötede yaşa ne yaşayacaksan. Bana bulaşma ya..
