2 Cultural Fault Lines and Political Divisions The Legacy of History in Contemporary Ukraine Mykola Riabchuk The notion of Ukraine as allegedly “divided between the pro-Russian east and the nationalist west” has become conventional wisdom in international journalistic reports on the country, and often appears in the academic realm as something too obvious to be questioned, explained, or framed as an issue. Such an approach suits the existing stereotypes perfectly, as well as the general tendency of mass consciousness to digest everything in simplified, ready-made form.

All doubts on this score were removed during the reign of Nicholas I (1825–1855) with its declaration of Orthodoxy, autocracy, and narodnost’ as the fundamental principles of Russian statehood. Tsarist ideology and policies worked against the formation of a “European,” modern Russian nation. Thus, while Russia’s “Europeanization” fostered the acculturation and assimilation 10 Roman Szporluk of “Little Russia” into a common imperial culture and polity, the processes that were making Russians European—while turning “Little Russians” into European Russians— also created conditions in which the modern idea of a distinct Ukrainian nation could emerge.

It then became easier for the Poles (and others) to press for democracy at home and for independence from the USSR. But the end of the German threat did not guarantee the survival of all states we might with some justification call successors of the Habsburg monarchy. German unification was soon followed by the breakup of Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia, and in both cases it is possible to see echoes of 1848. Ukraine’s independence followed the unification of Germany in less than one year. The “intersection” between the histories of Ukraine and Germany during the late 1980s–early 1990s proved to be very helpful to the Ukrainians.
