Аннотация: This research is dedicated to the Eastern Europe and its current geopolitical status. The political query explores the period that includes the post-war times. The author examines the cultural, social, economic, and political aspects that shape the Eastern Europe and its current development. Attention is given to the uniqueness of this region. An important part of this research is dedicated to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. The author looks at the evolution of the role of UN in Europe, which in author’s opinion represents one of the key causes for the present Ukrainian crisis. The author illustrates the modern development of the Eastern Europe on the example of Pakistanization and characterizes it as Urkainianization. The author claims that Ukraine and Europe became a hostage to the politically aggressive United States. The author also notes that by annexing Crimea Moscow has shown the United States and Europe that Ukraine remains the key geostrategic element of Russia’s security; Ukraine is tied to Russia by the historico-civilizational heritage – the Russian policy in Ukraine is aimed at maintaining Christian and European values.
