As crucial elections approach, is Ukraine really as divided as people have been told?
For months, the Ukrainian crisis has been deepening, with Moscow-backed separatists responding to Russia’s expansionist ambitions and rhetoric, and Ukrainian nationalists looking to the West for support.
But are the underlying divisions as clear as they’re portrayed? What basis is there for assuming that what must follow is civil war and partition – as some seem to fear?
Journalist and filmmaker Michael Andersen has worked extensively in Ukraine. With national elections set for later this month, People & Power sent him to assess the narrative that has taken the country down such a dangerous path.
