Ukraine is a country with a rich history and hard times. It’s located right between the Russia and the Europe, East and West, so it’s been always a battleground between 2 sides. Therefore, it’s important for either one to have improved relationship with a leader of the country, in order to have a better control over the political situations. Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovich tended to improve relationship with Russian government, even though most of Ukrainians were looking forward to improving relationships with the European Union. Students reacted with peaceful protests that were followed police violence against unarmed people and masses gathering for the justice and freedom of choice and speech.

Current State of the Research Paper
I feel like I have a lot to write about this topic. I’ve read a lot of articles, watched many videos, heard hundreds of stories and experienced the pressure of the situation myself. I have a lot of information that I’m not sure yet how to organize and what to leave untouched.
