Armchair General’s Analysis of Russian Citizenship for Ukrainians

Editorial Staff

Armchair General’s Editor in Chief, Jerry D. Morelock, PhD, has a nice summary of what is going on inside the Ukraine with regard to potential problems with Russia.  Why all the attention?  There is worry that the conflict between Georgia and Russia over S. Ossetia and Abkhazia has become an omen of things to come for several nations on the Russian perimeter.  Notably problematic is the liberal granting of Russian citizenship to people living in nations other than Russia proper (e.g., many passports were given to the S. Ossetians).

Now the attention of the world turns to the Ukraine, as Russia has put into motion a plan to grant citizenship for eight million Ukrainians (where it should be noted dual citizenship is not allowed) in the hopes of luring them back to the Motherland.  Jerry has a Ukrainian wife, and as such as some unique perspectives to share.
