There have been suggestions from several persons (including myself) that studying history of Yugoslav Wars could be beneficial for understanding the things and decision making in Ukraine. These conflicts are arguably the most similar historical events and both similarities and differences could help to provide better understanding and better prediction of the developments in the territories of the former Soviet Union.

The 21st century might well turn out to be very different from what we dreamt of in the golden decades immediately after the momentous changes that happened a quarter of a century ago. It certainly was not the end of history.
As a result of airstrikes by Ukrainian Air Forces, the railway station, the railroad bed and the hospital where terrorists concentrated their forces were damaged; however, the structures can be easily restored. Due to coordinated and professional actions of the Ukrainian army there were no civilian casualties. Actually, the correct behavior of Ukrainian soldiers was confirmed even by local supporters of terrorists. Now the situation in the town is controlled; the damaged buildings are being repaired. As a consequence of the historical events, Krasny Lyman which essentially belongs to South Slobozhanshchina but in fact is the “North Gate of Donbas”, has reached a crisis point in understanding its self-identification.
Croatia has gained independence only recently, nevertheless during Middle ages it was independent state and even after losing independence, it retained certain degree of autonomy up to the First world war. This means that through the most of its history Croatian nobility existed and Croatian soldiers had chance to fight for its homeland, not merely for the foreign ruler.

BY TIMOTHY SNYDER The history of statehood on the territory of Ukraine begins with two archetypically European encounters. Medieval statehood on the territory of today’s Ukraine, like that of France and England, includes an encounter with Vikings. The men from the north sought to establish a trade route between the Baltic and Black Seas, and…
Passers by and members of the public were reminded that the murderous Russian terrorists financed and supported by President Putin were responsible for the MH17 tragedy and that it was his missile that was shot down an innocent civilian plane.
I’ve spent the past week in Canada visiting my elderly parents. Other than having to deal with jet lag, I’ve also experienced a degree of culture shock: for the average Canadian, the situation in Ukraine is very distant indeed. For Ukrainian-Canadians who I would classify as intellectuals, the ongoing war in the Donbas is more…
There were infernal carnivals in the capitals of those contries, the patriotic demonstrations under the slogans “Kill the Germans,” “Kill the Frenchman,” “Kill the Russians!” etc.
Today I was mowing the old-fashioned way, using the scythe. And it is easy to imagine why scythe is symbol of death – with just one stroke, dozens of stems fall helplessly. But today, it is not grim reaper that holds the scythe, it is Russia. And it is not yellow crop under blue sky being…
Senator Markey’s legislation would double the amount of resources U.S. government agencies are currently expending to help the Ukrainian energy sector, including the State Department, USAID, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the Export-Import Bank, and the US Trade and Development Agency.
The Russian Federal Security Services (FSB) is lying about the affiliation of the Crimean activists with the organization “Right Sector” and terrorist groups.
The Crimean civil society activists arrested by FSB in May 2014 were engaged in peaceful public activity and are not involved with the organization “Right Sector”. The Committee on Aid to the Crimean Political Prisoners made a statement that the accusations of FSB against Crimean activists are absurd and affront to common sense. They also consider that “the real reason for their arrest is Russia’s reaction to their participation in the campaigns against the annexation of Crimea as well as the wish to intimidate all Crimean residents who don’t support separatists having seized the power on the peninsula”.
