In order to explain Ukrainian recent events, it is necessary beginning from the deep differences among Ukraine regions. West Ukraine is close to Poland, EU, United States; East Ukraine and Crimea are close to Russia. During the Yanukovich’s government, there was a try to neutralize those differences through European integration, but the plan failed: because of his economic interests, Yanukovich refused to sign the agreement with EU. For many people, this refusal has been the pretext to take to the streets. Nevertheless, there was not a clash between a tyrant and his opponents, but between two financial elites: that people was manipulated by the Yanukovich’s enemies - they had other financial interests. The resulting political revolution took to intensify the differences among Ukrainian regions. Indeed, in South-East Ukraine and in Crimea, separatist movements developed, and took those regions to secession and consequent accession to Russia. All that has originated the scorn of most of the international community, and has confirmed that unified Ukraine does not exist and cannot exist.
