Вернуть Украину: Рессентимент и будущая российская "реконкиста" общественного мнения Украины

Россия в глобальной политике. 2015. Т. 13. № 2. С. 91-100.

The Ukrainian government is, for the time being, successfully capitalizing on anti-Russian nationalist ideology. Yet evidently it is moving to bankrupcy. Increasing economic hardship will result in the Ukrainians re-evaluating their values with respect to the West that supported the so called revolution of dignity. Their _ressentiment_ will also lead to distrust and even hatred of their own pollitical elite. The Russian Federation should take advantage of the Ukrainian society's coming disappointment in Ukrainian nationalism. Close economic, social, and historical ties between the two countries will surely facilitate the policies aiming at the restoration of Russia's positive image in the wide segments of the Ukrainian population.
