Need an research paper on crisis in ukraine: a new us/russia cold war. Needs to be 13 pages. Please no plagiarism.  .What made the situation worse in Ukraine is that the US was able to help Ukraine to install a pro-western government while Russia was busy trying restoring the old regime. Others argue that the cold war is not on because Russia is not as powerful as it was during the cold war that arose after the Second World War. Today, Russia is nothing close to its former self and although it is a regional superpower, it has its own numerous problems as was the US. Others have argued that the world today is no longer a bipolar world where only two nations (the US and Russia) have power. This means that their differences in terms of the nature of government must not be seen as a dangerous factor with regard to how these nations will relate in the future and the effect of this on the rest of the world. At the same time, unlike in the earlier days when the political destiny of a nation is determined by its leaders, today’s citizens are more powerful and determine the political agenda of a nation, as can be seen in the Ukraine situation.
The problems in Ukraine started when the president of the nations refused to sign an agreement that would help Ukraine to join the European Union on November 21st, 2013. In Ukraine, there is a political movement and it led to the demand for closer relations with the European Union (Moore, 56-59). The chaos that followed saw president Yanukovych being unseated out of power. Even before, this, there was still some high level of unrest in Ukraine and this was just a culmination of the events that were already happening in Ukraine. Several civil wars have been erupting in the nations and this has caused unrest in the nation. Additionally, there have been many elections that have been held in the nation since the ousting of .the president. Most of these elections were held in compromising situations and amid political unrest as well as high levels of insecurity. .Because of this, voting was severely affected as many polling stations, as much as 80% remained closed even during a presidential election. .
