    Threadmarks: Defeat of Casimir III

    On 1349, Dmirto Dedko of Halych would defeat and kill Casimir III in battle with the help of his former brother in law, Liubartas which would cause Poland to have succession issues due to Casimir III having no sons and the King of Hungary wanting the succession of Poland, the succession issue of...
  2. How would Ukraine fit in the Union of Sovereign States if this happened?

    In 1991, many republics of the Soviet Union expressed interest in recreating the union into a new federation of sovereign states, where things such the army and foreign policy would be United and agreed on. While it did express interest in joining the new union of sovereign states, Ukraine...

    WI:Lubomirski Ukraine

    Is it possible for Ukraine to be ruled by the Lubomirski family since the direct descendants of the house that ruled Ukraine/Galicia-Volhynia turned out to be the Lubomirskis via the Masovian Dukes.

    WI: Bohdan Khmelnytsky accepts Ottoman suzerainty? (Ottoman Ukraine/Cossacks)

    Quoting the much-maligned Wikipedia: I'm aware that the Cossacks weren't major fans of the Turks, but for the sake of a thought exercise, let's suppose that the Cossack Hetmanate becomes a Turkish vassal without too much trouble. What are the effects on Ukraine's and Russia's developments as...
  5. WI: Smaller Soviet Union that's basically just Russia and Kazakhstan?

    What I mean is let's say that after the Bolsheviks decisively win the Russian Civil War, they content themselves with the borders of modern day Russia and Kazakhstan with the addition of Crimea and the Donestk so that the Sea of Azov becomes a Russian lake and there's a natural land bridge to...
  6. What if the Russophile faction in Galicia won out?

    In our timeline, in the mid-to late 19th century in Galicia (Ukraine), there was a struggle of three main factions on identity: 1) Ruthenophiles. They basically believed the population of Galicia was a separate, Ruthenian nation. They weren't too popular, and fell out of favour quickly. 2)...

    If Ukraine had been a Muslim nation would the conflict have largely been ignored in the West?

    I feel this is an important question given how the fallout of the War has negatively impacted us ordinary folk here in the West; folk who more often than not have no great political investment or interest in what happens in the East. I'm not really raising a question here about racial or...
  8. Plausibility check - distinct Galician culture (East Slavic)

    I have been trawling through the forum to see if this has come up before, but I can't seem to find anything. Basically, I am wondering how easy it would be for a distinctive Galician (the East Slavic variety) language and culture to develop, separate from Ukrainian. Basically, it needs to be...

    WI: China invades Taiwan on 2022/02/24?

    Idk if this qualifies as alternate history, but here we go. Asking out of curiosity, what would have happened had China invaded Taiwan on the 24th of February 2022, the same day Russia invaded Ukraine?
  10. Consequences of a 1994 Crimean independance on Ukraine and her nukes.

    DISCLAIMER: Please, remember the ''No current politics'' rule and don't discuss the ongoing armed conflict. I am talking about a scenario where the Supreme Soviet manages to oust Yeltsin during the 1993 constitutional crisis
  11. WI : The City of Odessa (Ukraine) Became Part of The Kingdom Of Romania AFTER the Great War ?

    I am speaking of course of a scenario where both the UPR and the Soviets do worse in the interwar period.

    Thought Experiment: How far East can you go before a "White Christian" nation would no longer be deemed a suitable candidate for EU expansion?

    So I’ve created this alternate map of West Asia for this purpose. In this alternative world, by 1992 and up to the present day, we are left with a ‘Christian arc' of independent states stretching from Ukraine to Goa. The rest of the world is exactly the same, albeit with a few countries losing a...

  17. WI: 2014 Annexation of Crimea never happened, but Ukraine was unable to join EU

    As the title above, what if the 2014 Annexation of Crimea never happened, but Ukraine was unable to join the EU. Let's say, Putin never chose to support Little Green Man and Donbass militias due to various factors. Perhaps the risk of American and EU sanctions was too much, or Putin trusted that...

    On 1323, Dmitro Dedko would deny Boleslaw Yuri his own claims to the lands of Galicia Volhynia after the deaths of his own half-brothers, which would mean that the land of Galicia Volhynia or Halych-Volyn would remain independent against the Poles despite its weakened disposition it would...

    July 1917 Kadet Coup against Kerenksy?

    More or less what it says on the tin, I'm curious about the plausibility of, in the aftermath of the Kerensky offensive and the July Days, a Kadet-backed coup (a la Kornilov affair, perhaps with Kornilov) during the tail end of July 1917. At the time of the July Days another revolt was happening...
