Ukraine had a pro-Russian president, Viktor Yanukovych. After months of protests against his rule he was impeached on 22nd February 2014. This marked the beginning of a prolonged crisis between the two countries. Unhappy with the removal of Viktor Yanukovych from the Ukrainian presidency, Russian forces entered Crimea, a province of Ukraine, on 22nd–23rd February 2014. On 18th March 2014, Russia annexed Crimea. This Russo-Ukrainian War has taken 14,000 lives. More recently, Ukraine has shown interest in joining NATO, the West's defensive military alliance. This was seen as a threat by Russia.
