Ukraine crisis is a manifestation of acute geopolitical rivalry between the West and Russia for inluence in Ukraine. A particular, bilateral aspect of this crisis is the limited conlict between Russia and Ukraine, in which the latter has lost Crimea and combats separatism in its eastern oblasts, Donetsk and Lugansk. The classical theories of political realism represented by Hans Morgenthau and Frederick Hartmann as well as offensive realism of John Mearsheimer are used to conduct the analysis of international aspect of this crisis. From this research perspective the article presents a brief history of the crisis and the motives of engaged parties, the West – including the United States, Poland and the European Union, as well as the motives of Russia. The paper highlights the rivalry level: geopolitical area over the spheres of influence, moreover military-strategic area as well as economic one. The author presents the consequences of the crisis for Ukraine, Poland and international order. And finally reflects on the key question – how out of the crisis? He presents proposals that suggest more restraint in the position of all parties involved in the crisis, and concludes that the crisis has shown that without cooperation with Russia is not possible an extension of Western influence and to realize the dream of Ukrainians of joining the European Union.
