Learn about the divide and what researchers recommend doing about it in this article from the Journal of Communication

Conflict in Ukraine: The Unwinding of the Post-Cold War Order by Rajan Menon and Eugene B. Rumer (MIT Press, 2015) 

Want to read up on the history of the Ukraine/Russia conflict? This book puts the conflict in historical perspective by examining the evolution of the crisis and assessing its implications both for the Crimean peninsula and for Russia's relations with the West more generally. Experts in the international relations of post-Soviet states, political scientists Rajan Menon and Eugene Rumer clearly show what is at stake in Ukraine, explaining the key economic, political, and security challenges and prospects for overcoming them. They also discuss historical precedents, sketch likely outcomes, and propose policies for safeguarding U.S.-Russia relations in the future. In doing so, they provide a comprehensive and accessible study of a conflict whose consequences will be felt for many years to come (from book summary). 

This title is available in the EBSCO eBook Academic Collection (this multidisciplinary collection includes thousands of e-books covering a large selection of academic subjects and features e-books from leading publishers and university presses).
