On the base of French-Ukrainian collaboration (DARIUS program), in the eastern part of the Crimea Mountain the first stage of field work was performed, during which the samples of flysch rocks were taken for micropaleontological analysis (Nanofossilsdating). It made possible to plot the first variant of structural geological map of this area and refresh the age of flysh products on it up to Early Cretaceous. The results obtained allow us to revise tectonic evolution of the East Crimea casting away the Cimmerian orogenesis.

Key words: Crimea, tavrica, turbidites, flysh deposits, Lower Cretaceous.
