Since winning the 2010 presidential elections in Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych has worked hard to repair Kyiv's relationship with Moscow. Early in his tenure, Yanukovych signed a package of treaties which appeared to exchange a reduction in the price of gas for Ukraine for the extension of the Russian lease on a naval base in Ukraine's Crimea, he also abandonned pursuit of NATO membership for Ukraine. While this could be taken as a sign that in security issues Ukraine is returning to the Russian fold, this paper examines the motivations for this move as well as the history of military reform in the country to find that economic interests rather than ideological issues have motivated decision making in this area. Nevertheless, this orientation has strategic implications which are likely to last.

Dominic Fean has been a Junior Research Fellow at the Russia/NIS Center, Ifri Paris since 2007. He lectures in Eastern European politics at the Institut des Etudes Politiques-Sciences Po Paris.
