bidness: Let me help by putting this in Europa Universalis 4 terms. Russia still has core claims on several Ukrainian provinces that still have the Russian culture. This causes 9.5% increased local revolt risk. Although Ukraine and NATO do not have a formal alliance yet, NATO has warned Russia, which will call them to war should Russia attack any neighbors.

Meanwhile the local rebels have managed to finish siegeing the province of Crimea and are close to enforcing their separatist demands.
