My own Choice of Government
For my choice of government in my society I would choose a democracy because it is the most effective way to keep everyone happy in my opinion.
In my society the people would be the ones to elect their leader by having an election between 2 people. There wouldn't necessarily be groups that are divided up in my society it would just depend on your job and what you decided what you wanted to do just like things work in our country today. People would no be allowed to break the laws and do anything to that would harm the good of the society as long as everyone gets along fine there will be no problems. For example nobody is allowed to make a sudden decision without consulting the other people in the society for their opinions on the issue.

Russia Ukraine Conflict
This is a complex topic, and I will try to simplify without oversimplifying. Of course there are variations in beliefs, and Russians don’t all think the same way.
In general, though, Russian understanding is often shaped by nineteenth-century Russian historians—before Ukraine became a modern nation. These historians created a model that has Russian history beginning in Kiev. After all, many Ukrainians (except for those in the West) came under the rule of Russia over the last few centuries.
For many Russians, Kiev is in a foreign country. It’s a historical misunderstanding to have it belong to Ukraine. It’s a bizarre notion that the 1991 map shows Ukraine no longer in Russia. So to many Russians, annexing Crimea is simply repairing a historical wrong.
It’s very difficult for many Russians to disentangle their own history from Ukraine’s and acknowledge the equality and legitimacy of the Ukrainian culture alongside their own.
Many Ukrainians have adopted this Russian mentality as their own too. They want to be urban and sophisticated, learn Russian, and drop their Ukrainian accent.
There is a whole spectrum of attitudes, identities, and relationships among Ukrainians. Some are fervent nationalists, and some feel they are somehow under the wrong influences and would like to be Russians themselves. And of course there is everything in between.
As always, there is no consensus about what will happen next. The population in Crimea is mixed, with Tatars (Turkic ethnic groups), Ukrainians, and Russians all living together. It is unclear how Russia is going to handle Crimea, given the shifting demographics.
There is concern that Russia will move into eastern Ukraine (where there still exist confrontations and provocations), though Putin has said he isn’t interested. No one knows.
