Freeport is associated with the golden age in Odessa. The city had this trade status in the first half of the 19th century. Historians believe that it is a free port led to the rapid development of Odessa and its brilliant dawn. Today, Ukraine is in deep economic crisis, so many public figures in Odessa believe that the restoration of the free port status in Odessa would allow reviving the regional economy. However, the Ukrainian ultranationalists believe that any weakening of the control from Kiev is equal to separatism. Therefore they pursue supporters of a free port.
