The Conflict Between the Ukraine and Russia - Introduction: The conflict between the Ukraine and Russia is the Ukraine's most long-standing and deadly crisis; since its post-Soviet independence began as a protest against the government dropping plans to forge closer trade ties with the European Union. The conflict between Russia and the Ukraine stems from more than twenty years of weak governance, the government’s inability to promote a coherent executive branch policy, an economy dominated by oligarchs and rife with corruption, heavy reliance on Russia, and distinct differences between Ukraine's population from both Eastern and Western regions in terms of linguistics, religion and ethnicity (Lucas 2009)....   [tags: globalization, social media, international law]

Ukraine Crisis - The hardened positions between the government and the opposition and the spread of anti-government protests to the country's western regions have increased the likelihood of a severe administrative crisis, potentially involving a power vacuum and protracted political uncertainty. Ukraine, the biggest country in Eastern Europe, is sandwiched between Russia and the West. It is something of a pawn between Russia and the West. For the West, the EU trade deal would mean its reach would spread further east; by contrast, the Russians see the Ukraine as key to holding on to their turf....   [tags: government, NATO, politics] 1621 words

Ukraine After The Chernobyl Disaster in 1986 - At the beginning of our project we considered Bertolt Brecht as a possible practitioner for our piece.
