Russia-Ukraine Crisis

Many Ukrainians Would Not Accept Russian Rule

Even if Russian forces take over Ukraine quickly, many Ukrainian citizens would object and fight back, says Chris Miller, professor of international history at Tufts University. Miller says Russian President Vladimir Putin would likely “rather just get Ukraine without an occupation.” But if Russian forces were stationed in Ukraine for a long time, they could face attacks from unofficial Ukrainian military groups even after a formal war is over.
