Synopsis

Borderland A Journey Through the History of the Ukraine by Anna Reid

Centre of the first great Slav civilisation in the tenth century, then divided between warring neighbours for a millennium, Ukraine finally won independence with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Tired of their own corrupt governments, Ukrainians mounted two more revolutions, taking to the streets again to demand fair elections and closer ties with Europe. Russia's response, in the spring of 2014, was to reinvade, capturing Crimea and the coalfields of the Russian-speaking Donbass. Threatened by Moscow, misunderstood in the West, Ukraine hangs once more in the balance.
