The Partition of Ukraine by HouseOfHesse The Partition of Ukraine by HouseOfHesse
Hypothetical map of Eastern Europe, in which the ex-Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych persuades his ally Vladimir Putin to intervene in the Euromaidan revolution following his ousting. What essentially follows is a conflict between the CSTO and NATO, with a few others involved (see key on map). The peace treaty negotiated by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski results in the creation of what is known as the 'Merkel-Sikorski Line', partitioning both Ukraine and Belarus, and causing Russia to lose some of its western territories, as well as seeing the transfer of some territories to both EU members and new states. At the close of the conflict, the remaining CSTO states, with the Belarusian and Ukrainian rump states, form Putin's long imagined Eurasian Union, creating a scenario similar to that of the Cold War.
This is a mildly satirical map and is not intended to offend, the renaming of several cities on the map (in the same vein as St Petersburg being renamed 'Leningrad' during the days of the USSR) is particularly 'tongue-in-cheek'.

I would think that Russian exclave would become independent before joining Poland, entering the European Union as country of its own. Maybe calling it New Prussia or something. otherwise I like this.

That's an interesting idea! I've never really thought about independence for Kaliningrad, I've always just rather naively assumed it would want to join Poland. Maybe you're right!

Great job, it's a good map.

This could be a possible scenario for the next few years.

Що то многовато в  "Дниприи" оставлено! Одессу  и Сумы геть оттуда, в восточну Украйну их! И як же  мы биз Питера проживём? Це ж наша культурна столиця!
