Election was Sunday.

They’ve had statehood for twenty years. But much of the divide is an artificial one. Ukrainian is a dialect of Russian and the two languages are mutually intelligible.

And even ethnic Ukrainians think Russian is more prestigious. Then again, shared historic and cultural ties run deep. Ukraine’s position in Europe requires it to have friendly ties with Russia.

It wants to join the EU but it will never join NATO.
