Ethno-Linguistic and Political map of Ukraina
March 1, 2014
This map seems to be a situation exactly as left to exist after the II World war when it lastly stopped.
The Ukrainian Nation is in a processing state, quickly made as secondary product from the battle field of the changing and utterly cracking tsunami waves of world war , mighty armies of Nazis and Russians killing each others on Ukrainian ground and killing and deporting enormous amount of civilians on the both side of Dnepr river- Ukraine is quite a fresh cemetery of unknown amount of bodies, even unknown mass murder sites are there still to be discovered.
But who really is an Ukrainian in the own ancient land- or in which part of Europe are Ukrainians mostly living? Of cause , as the Finnish people are partly living in Sweden it does not mean that Finland should win lots from Swedish ground because of emerged thriving Finnish population. The basic principles of a state is not only the ethnic origins if there is democracy, and not ethnic cleansing principle only . But very important is the official language. As in Sweden there is the Swedish language the official language, and others are minorities only, and Finnish language e.g. is very difficult for foreigners, too, so Swedish state has given some administrative privileges for Finnish minority for their very complicated and difficult language. but this is here In Sweden only one of many special items with ethnic minorities.
The Ukrainian situation seem to be more complicated. Hope they don’t kill each others´or the minorities , because they are the sons of those who behaved as they behaved in the world war II. including to each of the big armies as divisions famous to kill even more eager than German Nazis selves.
The deep economical difficulties there, the bad guys of Russia who boycott Ukraine as soon as Ukrainian has trouble as the energy problem during very cold winter time -, and the narcissism of the leader – ( not at all so narcissist as Ceausescu with his golden WC) – these are not a good combination , albeit the people of the newborn independent Ukraine wanted to be better than the old times people- ( I believe so) .
As the Finns to day- they want to be good : About one hundred years ago in the civil war they were ready to kill each others for the same reason as ukrainian now – and until annihilation . one part of Finns wanted something Russian- like existence – what that then means- and one part something western like – as in Sweden or USA or at least on the continental W-Europe – . Mostly, all were quite poor and many left the country and emigrated to USA and Canada.
