Ukraine-Crimea-Russia - Triangle of Conflict, Paperback Book

Ukraine-Crimea-Russia - Triangle of Conflict Paperback

Description

The Crimea was the only region of Ukraine in the 1990s where separatism arose and inter-ethnic conflict potentially could have taken place between the Ukrainian central government, ethnic Russians in the Crimea, and Crimean Tatars.

Such a conflict would have inevitably drawn in Russia and Turkey.

Russia had large numbers of troops in the Crimea within the former Soviet Black Sea Fleet.

Ukraine also was a nuclear military power until 1996.This book analyses two inter-related issues.

Firstly, it answers the question why Ukraine-Crimea-Russia traditionally have been a triangle of conflict over a region that Ukraine, Tatars and Russia have historically claimed.

Secondly, it explains why inter-ethnic violence was averted in Ukraine despite Crimea possessing many of the ingredients that existed for Ukraine to follow in the footsteps of inter-ethnic strife in its former Soviet neighbourhood in Moldova (Trans-Dniestr), Azerbaijan (Nagorno Karabakh), Georgia (Abkhazia, South Ossetia), and Russia (Chechnya).
