Book's frontpage

In 1991 Ukraine left the Soviet Union and declared its own independence. Although it is located on the EU’s borders, it only drew the West’s attention after the revolutions of 2004-2005, which showed its critical situation between the influence of its neighbour Russia and that of the European Union and the United States.

A country with an area double the size of Italy, with extraordinary geographical and human variety and a recent past marked by terrible tragedy (the collectivization of agriculture, World War II, and in 1986 the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear station). Today, as the ferment of democracy and the prospect of new relations with the European Union develops, an extraordinary geopolitical experiment is under way in Ukraine which portends many discoveries and surely some surprises.
