         Protests in Ukraine continue since November. The country seems tightened between two powers; European Union and Russia. Last declarations from Europe, Herman Van Rompuy was in favor of the protesters, Van Rompuy specified that the  future of Ukraine is with European Union whereas Russia side Sergei Lavrov criticised protesters and surprised with European Union defending the vandals.

         Ukraine has already been an important issue between the two powers.  Both side consider the region as the gate of their security including Romania and Bulgaria. The latter have been gathered by the EU and Ukraine is now last fortificcation for Russia.


         Russia’s  historical imperial interest still continue on Ukraine. The country is divided nto two segments: Russia supporters and the ones aiming to enter to the EU.
