The collapse of the Soviet Union brought an end to seventy years of Soviet control of Ukraine. During that time Ukraine suffered extensive famines, deportation of its citizens, and repopulation of its country by ethnic Russians. Since independence, Ukraine has aligned more with the west, resulting in escalating tension between ethnic Russians and Ukrainians. Recently Russia has sent troops into Ukraine in an effort to protect their interests as Ukraine has destabilized. This has dramatically escalated the crisis. Join Active Minds as we explore this delicate situation.
