There’s an interesting fact about legitimacy of Ukrainian statehood that is commonly being swept under the carpet. Take a look at this map:

The numbers speak for themselves, and it’s obvious which part of the Soviet Ukrainian SR is actually inhabited by Ukrainians. I wonder whether this western-Ukrainian banderist part will continue existing as a sovereign state after the war, since it happens to be the part the neighbouring countries have historical territorial claims to. One thing is certain: the timeline where this becomes relevant overlaps with the timeline where NATO directly intervenes.
