Ukraine: In Russia's shadow

Torn between Russia and the West, the territories which now form Ukraine and Belarus have long been a battleground for competing ideologies. Both nations have known only brief periods of independence during their long and bloody histories. Both former Soviet republics are suffering from economic hardships and disappointed hopes. We look at the condition and prospects of these two key states at Europe's edge.
