With all of the recent headlines, we have begun speaking of a place many have not been properly introduced to. Now that you have met one another, what exactly is going on over there?

"You know how the Texas border moved up and down and around before becoming the state we know today? Well Ukraine has a similar history, with much more extreme battles over its territory in Eastern Europe. In short, the country has been split between east and west for centuries; today, the question is whether the country will continue to align itself with Russia, which starved Ukrainians in the 1930s, or take steps toward joining the European Union.

A member of the Soviet Union from 1922, Ukraine declared its sovereignty in July 1990, basically telling Russia that it could run its own country. Even so, the country has had trouble with democracy in the years since, and has remained closely aligned with Russia."-Sparknotes

Can you imagine what preconceptions other countries have about us based on popular media?
