Ukraine wary of fragile peace as patriotism surges

In this photo taken on Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014, Oleksandr Federenko, second right, and students march during military training exercise in a military school in Boyarka, close to Kiev, Ukraine. In the half-year since Ukraine has lost huge swaths of its territory to Russian annexation and civil war, 13-year-old Oleksandr Federenko has gone from a simple village kid to an army cadet, trading computer games for knife-throwing classes and morning marches. Federenko is one of many Ukrainians who doesn’t trust Russia or the Russian-backed separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine enough to believe that a shaky cease-fire called last month will hold. In four years’ time, he’ll be ready to fight. The government’s campaign against the rebels in the east has stoked a sharp rise in militarized patriotism in the rest of the country. Army ads dominate many TV stations, war heroes are at the top of every party’s candidate lists for this month’s parliamentary election and defense issues - once a second-echelon issue topic in Ukraine - are now at the top of the agenda.
