Confused about events in Ukraine? We don’t blame you. The protests started when then-President Yanukovych declined to sign the Association Agreement with the EU at the end of November 2013 and escalated into a de-facto revolution that left a hundred dead. Immediately after, Russia started a stealthy annexation of Crimea and takeover of South-Eastern Ukraine. The latter, being unsuccessful, has led to a frozen conflict in Donbas with which Russia hopes to continue to destabilize Ukraine. Physics teacher Borislaw Bilash guides us through the chronicle of newest Ukrainian history.
