The Ukrainian revolution of February 2014 took place after a series of violent events towards protesters in the capital of Kiev that culminated with the flight and subsequent impeachment of the then-President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych.

Yea and no but it did signifigantky change. The cold war had to do with the containment of communism which isnt really as big a thing anymore. They fight about other stuff now. Really if you actually think about history all wars are connected and can be seen as a continuatjon. Particularly ww1-now.

I like Russia (u may guess) but it doesn't really pose a threat to the west anymore, NATO is about 2 times as strong as it and Russia is not the soviets they have stopped spreading there influence.
