The Conversation: A divided Ukraine could see two radically different states emerge

The Conversation: A divided Ukraine could see two radically different states emerge
Description
Written by Dr Richard Connolly. It is increasingly difficult to predict what the future holds for Ukraine. One scenario sees the country becoming divided along roughly ethnic lines, with an ethnic Ukrainian western state and a more Russia-oriented eastern state comprising today's southern and eastern Ukraine. So what would the economies of these potential new states look like?

The Conversation: Putin calling all the shots in Ukraine: what next for relations between Russia and the West?

The Conversation: Putin calling all the shots in Ukraine: what next for relations between Russia and the West?
Description
Written by Professor Stefan Wolff and Professor Tatyana Malyarenko (Professor of Public Administration at Donetsk State Management University). After days of heightening tensions and increasingly aggressive rhetoric, Russian president Vladimir Putin requested, and was promptly granted, authorisation to deploy Russian troops in Ukraine until the situation there had "normalised". Yet, after further diplomatic efforts, including a 90-minute telephone call between presidents Obama and Putin, there has so far been no actual military escalation, even though the increased presence of Russian troops in Crimea and Ukraine's announcement to call up military reservists have heightened the potential for serious violence.

While the ongoing crisis in Ukraine has exposed the division between the country's pro-Western and pro-Russian populations, another divide is more clear-cut and arguably more imminently threatening: the divide between supporters and opponents of separatism in Crimea.
