In connection with the actual change of state jurisdiction, the telephone code of the Crimea also changed. Previously, in order to call from a mobile or landline phone you needed to dial the code of Ukraine +380 or just the code of the mobile operator. Now, the Crimea code looks like this - +7365, where +7 is the international code of Russia, and 365 is already Republic.

Previously, when making calls, it was possible to completely manage by simply dialing the number with the mobile network code. For example, for calls to MTS Ukraine subscribers it was enough to dial 0501234567. After the change of jurisdiction, this option is no longer suitable and the number must be entered in its entirety. In addition, the majority of Ukrainian operators no longer provide services on the peninsula.

Important: Old numbers of Crimean operators may not be available.Before calling, make sure that the number is still relevant.

Mobile operators such as Kyivstar and Life ceased their operations on the peninsula in August and November 2014, respectively. At the moment, only MTS Ukraine partially works here in the format of technical roaming. However, a quality signal can be caught only in large cities. You can still call MTS Ukraine subscribers by dialing +380507654321. If you are dialing from a landline phone, it will look like this - 8 (1038) 050 7654321.
Also now on the peninsula operates the Russian operator MTS. However, it functions under the cover of K-Telecom, in order not to fall under sanctions. It provides the standard package of MTS-Super Crimea and Krasnodar services. At the end of 2014, Beeline announced that he did not plan to work in this territory, after which the government of the republic announced plans to launch a local cellular network.

The second option is a call to K-Telecom’s mobile numbers, which is 978 in Crimea.That is, you will need to dial +7 978 and further the subscriber number.
The third option - calls to landline numbers in the Crimea. There are some peculiarities here. If you want to call across the Crimea, the code will look like +7 365, and then the number.

To call the city numbers of Sevastopol, dial the following sequence: +7 869 2 and then the number.
