What's it about?

To give the present a clear context, we need to look at the past. In this collection, we explore the events and figures that have led to crisis between Russia and the Ukraine. Find out about the events surrounding the 2014 Russo-Ukrainian War, uncover the inner-workings of the path which led to Putin's rise to office and his questionable alliances with the KGB, and—more importantly—learn how and why this conflict affects not only Europe, but the rest of the world.
