Please tell me what you know about Russian-Ukrainian relationships in 1990–2010.

> Ukraine's national identity as anything but a slave-territory has traditionally been something Russia denies and disregards

"Slave-territory"? Are you out of your mind or what? Russo-Ukrainian history is way too complicated to be oversimplified like that. Next thing you'll be telling me Poland had always been nice and friendly towards Ukraine and Ukrainians (and vice versa).

The problem now is that Ukraine is seen (by some) as a part of Russia: not a colony as in "British colonies", but yet another region. Like Austria was seen by Hitler and his Reich.
