Dec. 17, 2013 

After meeting with Yanukovych in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin announces a series of agreements to boost trade and industrial cooperation with Ukraine. Ukraine and Russia trace their roots to the ninth century, when tribes founded Kievan Rus around modern-day Kiev. Ukraine has struggled to forge a national identity, falling under Moscow’s sway through most of the Russian and Soviet empires. The nation of 45 million is divided between the Russian-speaking regions of the east and the Ukrainian-speaking provinces of the west, near the border with Poland, Slovakia and Hungary.
