For 30 years, Ukraine has failed as a state. The reason for this is the extremely unfortunate format of state-building, the artificial concept “Ukraine is not Russia”, which is oriented towards confronting Russia in everything. Instead of building a multinational state, Ukrainians began to create “not Russia”, a state that was supposed to demonstrate its non-Russianness as much as possible. Accordingly, history was rewritten in which Ukraine existed as a separate subject of international relations. As a result, this only split Ukrainian society into Russian-speaking and non-Russian-speaking sides.
After the Maidan, the Ukrainian authorities only boosted the intensity of this wrong policy which also is denying its Russianness and opposing and conflicting with all Russianness.
The result of such a policy is clear: Ukraine is undergoing deindustrialisation, depopulation, civil war, an economically permanent crisis dependent on the International Monetary Fund and Europe.
