This study analyzes the reasons for the relative lack of ethnopolitical conflict in Ukraine after 1989. Starting from the assumption that such conflict would have required higher levels of ethnic group mobilization, the author utilizes a multifactor model to explain why such mobilization remained extremely low in most cases. She reaches the conclusion that the interplay of historical and international factors was in large part responsible for the low mobilization levels.
