Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is the second-largest European country after Russia, which it borders to the east and northeast. During the Middle Ages, Ukraine was the site of early Slavic expansion and the area later became a key centre of East Slavic culture under the state of Kyivan Rus', which emerged in the 9th century. The area was then contested, divided, and ruled by a variety of external powers for the next 600 years, including the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Austrian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the Tsardom of Russia. Ukrainian nationalism developed, and following the Russian Revolution in 1917, the short-lived Ukrainian People's Republic was formed. The Bolsheviks consolidated control over much of the former empire and established the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. Ukraine gained independence in 1991 as the Soviet Union dissolved, and declared itself neutral. A series of mass demonstrations, known as the Euromaidan, led to the establishment of a new government in 2014 after a revolution. Russia then unilaterally annexed Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula; and pro-Russian unrest culminated in a war between Russian-backed separatists and government forces in eastern Ukraine. Russia later launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Mykhailo Hrushevsky[]

Mykhailo Hrushevsky was a Ukrainian academician, politician, historian and statesman who was one of the most important figures of the Ukrainian national revival of the early 20th century. Considered the country's greatest modern historian, the foremost organiser of scholarship, the leader of the pre-revolution Ukrainian national movement, he was the leader of the Central Rada, and a leading cultural figure in the Ukrainian SSR during the 1920s.

Dawn of Man[]

"Blessings of the nation be upon you, oh contemplative Mykhailo Hrushevsky, national hero, President of the Central Rada and key historian of the Ukrainian national movement. It was you who wrote the History of Ukraine-Rusʹ, which definitively laid out the national history of Ukraine, tracing its roots back all the way from ancient Scythia to the Kyivan Rus, through Ruthenia to the Cossacks, as part of Ukraine’s national history. You stood up during the Ukrainian National Revolution to become the President of the Central Rada which laid the roots for democracy in Ukraine deep. Guiding Ukraine through the chaotic world that its modern state had been birthed into, you became a national hero. However, events conspired against you, and the Central Rada was abolished via coup. Leaving for exile, the governments following proved too distasteful, and you could only accept the fate of Ukraine as a centralist and repressive regime under Russia’s thumb.

Oh scholarly Mykhailo Hrushevsky, it is your time to seize Ukrainian might and deliver it from the hands of tinpot tyrants. You must rally the Ukrainian people and lead them into a new age of national democracy. Can you stave away the invaders and strengthen Ukraine’s democratic resolve? Will you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Welcome to Ukraine. We are the sons and daughters of Kyiv, and we shall not err in our passion for our history."

Defeat: "You may have physically defeated us, but the spirit of Khmelnytsky will live on, and we will rise again. The glory of Ukraine has not yet perished, nor the will."
