I am not sure what you find puzzling.  There were known to be many documents in the Simferopol and Sevastopol Archives before 2014.  They covered large areas of the Crimean Peninsula.  Records include census (Revision Lists), birth, marriage, divorce, and death records, as well as others.  Access has been denied since 2014.

The political status of Crimea has been a subject of a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia. Russian forces seized Crimea by force in 2014. Russia then annexed Crimea in 2014 following a referendum, and administers it as two federal subjects of Russia, and claimed it to be 'fully integrated' in July 2015.
