This project aims at a study of the multiple reasons and likely consequences of the 2013-14 so called 'Ukraine crisis', within a broader context of European history and politics. It examines the sources and patterns of various misperceptions on both the Ukrainian and Westerners' sides that result in mutually reinforcing frustrations, ambiguities, and inappropriate steps. The ultimate goal is to develop a more nuanced and comprehensive view of Ukraine and the region that would facilitate more adequate policies.
