The article discusses one of conflicts between Russia and Ukraine that still throws shadow on their relationship. As the future was to show, a small group of islands whose affiliation was subject to a political dispute that lasted a couple of weeks (although there was also a quasi-military solution) was one of the first serious conflicts between Moscow and Kiev after Ukraine regained its independence. It started a series of various disagreements. Their primary aim was for Russia to regain strategically important influences in the region of the Black Sea and, more broadly speaking, in the post-Soviet area. For Ukraine, each of these conflicts meant fighting for its sovereignty. Thus, determination of both sides is no wonder.
