Summary/Abstract: Since the president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has been ousted from power by the parliament of the Ukraine in 22 Feb 2014, the cri-sis in Ukraine has been fueled even more. The Euromaidan events in Feb 2014 have led to the change of power in Ukraine and abandon-ment of the president Yanukovych from the country. After the 16 March referendum, Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastapol with special status have been separated from Ukraine and these have been connected to Russian Federation with their new names "Republic of Crimea" and "Federal City of Sevastopol". In 7th of April 2014 People's Republic of Donetsk has been established. In ad-dition to all of these developments, Russia accepted the current ad-ministration in Ukraine as illegal. The ongoing political instability in Ukraine puts the integrity of the country in danger. In this study, the reasons of political weakness in Ukraine and the territorial integrity of the country have been investigated and the political course of the country has been analyzed.
