Ukraine stands at a crossroads. Between a resurgent Russian Empire to its east and an uneasy Europe to its west, the burgeoning Ukrainian democracy is untested and unproven in face of diehard Soviet insurgents, autocratic politicians, and ultranationalist former warlords all vying for power mingled in with true believers of democracy, liberalism and capitalism. Whether the fragile Ukrainian state can withstand the storms - internal and external - is yet to be seen.
