UKRAINE

Man has fought over territory, food, water, natural resources and even over women 
The fight for survival is the strongest instinct in all species, including human. 
Then followed the fight over religion under the guise of holy wars
 Each claiming that spreading and fighting for their faith was a just cause.
Having recovered from two world wars we have reached the 21st century 
We have gone to the moon, accomplished cloning and open heart surgery. 
Despite all of the above, a new balance of power looms 
As more and more bodies are taken to unknown tombs!
