Abstract : If the two countries became separate entities and "foreign", it seems that Russia is still present in Ukraine, including linguistically and culturally and also has many historical interests, security, but also economic; its geopolitical interests led him, in March 2014, to return Crimea in it. For the future, either Ukraine considers its bicultural and bi-linguistic reality and should retain its unity, or, otherwise, the emphasis of his score is not unlikely. At the way the United States, the European Union and the new Ukrainian authorities months post-Maidan treat this geodemographic reality, it is questionable whether they have assimilated the issue of minority human groups that teaches the geopolitics of populations? The risk is that without a negotiated solution, Ukraine finds double loser : territorially with the departure ever used the Crimea and the risk of partition other eastern regions, and economically because Russia could not wanting to make gifts to Kiev economy and the EU can not afford to wear at arm a country with a large population, while the evolution of Ukraine towards a true state law, halting such intense practices of corruption, takes time. Unless, of both sides, the reason will eventually prevail at the extent of other conflicts that involve risks destabilizing both for the EU and Russia.
