Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Modern Ukrainian national identity is at least 5 centuries old, mostly defined against Polish domination.

Name me recent examples (past 3 or 4 centuries, when the concept of nation-state really emerges) and I'm ready to bet that 9 out of 10 have disappeared under either mass migrations, forced cultural assimilation or outright genocide, not mere evaporation into thin air.
