I predict that Ukraine will come to dominate all of Eurasia, and eventually the world, and the first human starship will be crewed by people with lots of Vs and Zs in their names.
Ukraine will dominate the European manufacturing if Russia cannot keep them in check, Ukraine was Russia's silicon valley and Engineering hub of the USSR

T-bones you should be grateful to the Ukrainian people for domesticating the first horses in the world, since your ancestors seem to take great pride on their horsemanship

Agricultural products constitute the country's leading export item, accounting for approximately 50% of all exports. Years ago, Ukraine was called “Europe's breadbasket” but it is fast becoming the “world's food basket” as its agricultural exports make their way to Africa and Asia as well as Europe.

When the Soviet Sputnik reached low-Earth orbit in 1957 shocking the world, little was known about the humble engineer by the name of Sergey Korolev who made the flight possible. Born 100 km West from Ukraine's capital Kyiv in Zhytomyr, he was educated in Odesa, Kharkov, and Kyiv - all centers of strong technical education to this day.

WhatsApp's founder is Ukrainian, as is PayPal co-founder and the co-inventor of Wi-Fi. And most famously, Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak has proud Ukrainian heritage. But cementing Ukraine's new title as the Silicon Valley of Europe will require a lot more money being invested not only in Ukraine but the entire region as well.

Winter on Fire​

Chronicling events that unfolded over 93 days in 2013 and 2014, this documentary witnesses the formation of a new civil rights movement in Ukraine. What started as peaceful student demonstrations supporting European integration morphed into a full-fledged violent revolution calling for the resignation of the nation's president. The film captures the remarkable mobilization of nearly a million citizens from across the country protesting the corrupt political regime that utilized extreme force against its own people to suppress their demands and freedom of expression.

As Russian troops mass on the borders of Ukraine, Trudeau has rejected a request for weapons, saying he believes in a diplomatic solution (instead, he promised to send bullet-proof vests, night goggles and an additional 60 military trainers.)

Each country at this point should just settle everything by choosing 1 champion and have them fight to the death. If Ukraine wins Russia leaves Ukraine, if Russia wins Ukraine changes government.
