Why do some Ukrainians want to be part of Russia? BBC News (Excellent)

Via u_96


  1. When you get past the cold war BS you can get to the fundamental truth, Stalin killed something like 60% of all ethnic Ukrainians before the second world war. The Germans systematically killed almost half the remainder between 1941 and 1943. Stalin "repopulated" Ukraine with ethnic Russians after WW-2 to the point of them making up almost 80% of the population. Why do they want to be Russian? Because they ARE Russians and have been since the end of WW-2. ----Ray
