Ukraine

Background

 

Ukraine borders Russia and was occupied and served as a puppet state until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. The US and Ukraine maintain bilateral relations as the US attached great importance to the successful transition of Ukraine to a democratic, prosperous, and stable state. 

In 2014, Russia invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea disregarding Ukraine’s territorial sovereignty and international law. In response, the U.S. and Western allies imposed sanctions on Russia and the U.S. increased its military presence in Europe.

Current Developments

 

As of May 2013, NATO stated that Ukraine has made it known that they had a clear interest in the future development of NATO's anti-ballistic missile system despite Russia's opposition.

In response to Russia’s occupation of Crimea, the U.S. and its NATO allies are considering increasing U.S. ballistic missile defenses in Europe.  

 

Capabilities

 

None.
