Regional Difference in Ukraine

Susan Stewart

Deutsche Fassung


The differences between Ukraine’s east and west are often simplified. Analysis of the historical, ethnic, linguistic, and economic differences as well as political attitudes reveals a complex picture. Neither the east, nor the west is homogenous, the Crimea is an exception in many respects, and the central oblasts (provinces) play an important balancing role.
