Trenin on Ukraine

"You have a country that was essentially put together by the Soviets. You may count the history of Ukraine from the days of Kievan Rus', but the reality is that Ukraine that exists in its Soviet era borders, which are still the official borders of Ukraine recognized by the international community, are exactly the borders that were formed by people like Lenin and Stalin and Nikita Khrushchev."

--Vladimir Trenin,director of the Carnegie Moscow Center of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Moscow
