Thank you hardy for this map.
I want to add to the information about the inhabitants of Western
Ukraine.
This area is a very rich agricultural area, sort of the "breadbasket"
of Europe.
After the Russian revolution Stalin wanted to force the local
peasants to join Kolchozes.
They refused, so in the 1930-ies they were on purpose starved to
canibalism and death.
They have not forgotten this.
With the annexation to Ukraine of parts of Galicia after WW2, there
are now many people of Polish origin
living in the area. They certainly do not want close ties to Russia.
