Will Ukraine Escape Russian Domination?

Putin has proven his determination to regain control of the wayward former republic of Ukraine, feeling that it should be part of one great nation, those ethnic Russians who predominantly live in the south and east of Ukraine, joining their brothers and sisters from Russia. The question is if they too would like a reunification with Mother Russia or would prefer to find themselves in a federal republic with more European ties?

We are long away from the time that Kyiv was the capital of the Russian people (Kievan Rus) from 882-1240. As we saw in other previous great nations, they became over the centuries splintered and got even changes in language and traditions.

Historically, Russia treated Ukraine as a backwater region – as a servant rather than a brother, and we might have thoughts about the proper intentions of the present dictator of Russia who determined that Ukraine should remain Russia’s borderland or buffer against the West.

The political history of post-Soviet Ukraine is marked by corruption, electoral fraud, and mass protests.

In the 30 years since the breakup of the Soviet Union, Ukraine has endured seven presidents, two revolutions, and countless scandals. It lost the geographically vital territory of the Crimean peninsula when the Russians annexed it in 2014, and since then it has been fighting Russian-supported separatists in the eastern regions (oblasts) of Donetsk and Luhansk (aka Donbas). Implementing democracy has been rough for a country that was controlled by the Russian Empire from the 18th century until the Russian Revolution in 1917 and by the Soviet Union from 1922 until their breakup in 1991. In Russian, Ukraine means borderland. Clearly, Russia is determined to retain Ukraine as their borderland against the West.
