Imagine you are a US cyber security official engaging in a training exercise. Your supervisor provides you with a case scenario(refer to PDF attachment).

This literature review must include an analysis of course materials, and it can also include other materials that you find reliable, useful, and relevant.

Ukraine has struggled to forge an independent path, torn

between Europe and the United States in the West and

its long-standing ties to Russia in the East.

Ukraine: Conflict at the
Crossroads of Europe and
Russia

Introduction

Ukraine has long played an important, yet sometimes overlooked, role in the global

security order. Today, the country appears to be on the front lines of a renewed great-

power rivalry that many analysts say will dominate international relations in the decades

ahead.

Top Conflicts to Watch in 2020: A Crisis Between Russia and Ukraine

Motivated by many factors, Russia’s aggression in Ukraine has triggered the greatest

security crisis in Europe since the Cold War. While the United States and its allies have

taken significant punitive actions against Russia, they have made little headway in helping

to restore Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

In recent elections, Ukrainians have clearly indicated that they see their future in Europe,

but the country continues to grapple with extreme corruption and deep regional rifts that

could impede its path.

Why has Ukraine become a geopolitical flash point?

Ukraine was a cornerstone of the Soviet Union, the archrival of the United States during

the Cold War. Behind only Russia, it was the second–most populous and powerful of the

fifteen Soviet republics, home to much of the union’s agricultural production, defense

industries, and military, including the Black Sea Fleet and some of the nuclear arsenal.

Ukraine was so vital to the union that its decision to sever ties in 1991 proved to be a coup

de grâce for the ailing superpower.
