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'.
Comments, criticisms, questions and friendly discussions are always welcome!

Some of this doesn't make sense at all, Karelia i.e.
Why is Karelia an independent nation?
According to the last census, 82% op population is Russian.…

Also Leningrad Oblast over 90% Russians…
and Petrograd 80% Russians…
and Pskov over 95% Russians…

Why would all of those Russians want to seceede from Russia?
Also, Russia would loose a great part of Arctic region in which currently plans to explore seabed for minerals.
IMO, Karelia - not a chance, but with Leningrad and Pskov - not even if the hell freezes.

Some makes sence, but it should turn in different direction.
Why is Grodna region (c) seceeded to Lithuania?
Today there's over 62% Belarusians, and 24% Poles.
It was Polish influenced region before WW2, just like Lwow. If it's to be seceeded to anyone then it should be Poland.…

Some also makes sense but from today's viewpoint is just unwise and imprudent.
Why is Ruthenia returned to Slovakia?
According to the last census there is 1,25M people in Ruthenia of which 1M Rusyns and 150k of Hungarians.…
Slovakia has 4,3M people and those 1,25M would change ethnic and social structure of such a small country and would definitelly shift political balance.

Why would Ukraine be renamed in Dnipra?
If the supposed partition takes place Odessa would definitely not stay in Dnipra.

Galycia, really? Why would western allies of Ukraine break it in two parts?
Why would they carve out parts of Ukraine to themselves? Budjak and Ruthenia i.e.
What kind of allies are that?

And finally.
Do you really think that Brest would go to Galicia?…

I forgot of Transdniestria. :)
If Odessa would go with Russia, and Moldova was to unite with Romania, Transdniestria would definitely proclaim independence and mos probably:
1. remain independent and neutral
2. join Russia
3. join new Ukraine

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.

Surrounded by EU & NATO it would seceede from Russia either by decision of regional government or by coup.
Fear of obliteration and a common sense would prevail to avoid full scale conflict and probably devastation.
With a population of just under a million it could easily be absorbed by Poland, but if EU would remain consistent in policy it would most probably become at least an allied state like Kosovo if not an independent member-state.

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!
