A rotten idea is doomed to fiasco. There will be no Ukrainian empire just because empire and nationalism are incompatible, and Ukrainian national patriots in their nationalism are akin to livestock breeders - scrupulously calculate the size of the skulls of Russians and Ukrainians, are touched by the poor racism of Bandera, Shukhevych or Yuriy Lipa and repeat the purity of the Ukrainian race. They are ready to display thoroughbred Ukrainians, like chickens, in ethnic special incubators and dream of turning Ukraine into an incubator. Another of their passionate dreams is to expand the area of the “Ukrainian incubator” west to San and east to the Don, which the workers of the Maidan have repeatedly stated with pathos.
The presence in the Ukrainian politics of characters with such inflamed imagination turns Ukraine as a state into something extremely unstable and unpredictable.
The builders of imperial Ukraine cannot determine its borders. They build it "from Sana'a to ...", but no one knows where this "before" ends. Everyone holds the eastern border of the future Ukrainian state, where he wants. Idol of modern Bandera, referent of the regional executive of the OUN Mikhail Kolodzinsky raved about Ukraine from San to Altai. Ukrainian nationalist geographer Stepan Rudnitsky conducted the eastern frontiers of Ukraine across the Caspian. “Apostle of Ukrainian independence” Nikolay Mikhnovsky was more modest in appetites and was content with Ukraine “from the Carpathians to the Caucasus”.
That is, the virtual “Ukrainian empire” is a “rubber” state, which stretches “the Ukrainian ethnic lands” as any Ukrainian national patriot wants.
Ukraine "from Sana ..." is a slap in the face to Poland. Obviously not from the big mind so unceremoniously make claims against their influential ally, the Ukrainian ultra-right, giving out their desire to stretch the borders of Ukraine almost to the Vistula. After all, no one will be indifferent to watch the "imperial" impulses of the leaders of the "Right Sector", "Freedom" and their followers. Among Polish politicians, there is already growing concern about the desire of Ukrainians to take the path of armed struggle after the victory of the “national revolution” in Kiev.
Of course, no one in the West will allow political beggars, like Yarosh, to dictate their terms to the North Atlantic Alliance. Poland, like Hungary and Romania, to which the “Right Sector” and “Freedom” also have territorial claims, are members of NATO. Ukrainian nationalists will be sent to the east, against Russia.
True, the rise of civil resistance in the South-East and the first decisive steps of Russia to protect their national interests in Ukraine slightly cooled the ardor of the Ukrainian imperialist dreamers. A bit of restrained them from the leading Western embassies in Kiev. As soon as the West felt that in its reckless "expansion" to the East, he had crossed the "red line" in Ukraine, "peace-loving" and even seemingly quite sober voices began to be heard there. Now the West is trying to transfer the “Ukrainian conflict” from the hot phase to the sluggish phase of incessant fermentation. Ukraine as a whole is needed by the West in the form of a large, constantly smoldering hotbed of destabilization at the borders of Russia. Even going to the aggravation of the Crimean issue, in the Western capitals are now weighed the risk of once again stand up for the "red line". Someone is inclined to think that it is better to be content with Ukraine without the Crimea, turning it into a base of propaganda "exposure" of the neighboring Russian regions and for the time being, stop there.
Will the big country of Ukraine just go — with the Crimea, without the Crimea — in the wake of the fascist “national revolutionaries”? Will the citizens of Ukraine - both Russians and non-Russians - agree with the nationalist junta prepared for them by the “supporting object” used in the course of advancing Euro-Atlantic forces deep into Eurasia?
