The Ukraine crisis began on 21st November 2013, when the former President Viktor Yanukovych suspended the implementation of an association agreement with the EU. This sparked mass protest, turning into a revolution which toppled the government and led to Yanukovych's ousting. In 2014, Russia sends its military forces into Crimea after which Kiev's government launches its first formal military action against the pro-Russian rebels.
