Ukraine, due to its geopolitical position as a leading meeting place of the East and the West, industrial capacities and historical background, is of great importance in Eurasia. The same unique features as well as its ethnic texture has turned the two parts the country into a place for encounters and East-West rivalry. The first serious clash of Russia and the West in this country was during the Orange Revolution in 2004 when the country’s presidential election took place. If in 2004, politics was a cause for competition between Russia and in Ukraine, 10 years later and this time because of an economic agent the two sides again stood in front of one another. The contrast was far more intense and deep and it led to the separation of a part of the territory of Ukraine. The purpose of this article, using the analytical method, is to investigate the crisis and its impact on the Russian Military Doctrine. The main question of this study is: What Criteria and Factors in the Ukrainian crisis had an Impact on the Russian military doctrine? To answer this question, we examined the hypothesis that the quest of the West for influence in Ukraine in the political economic and military-security and integration of the country into Western structures increased a sense of threat and instability in Russia and the approach has been aggressive in its military doctrine, but on the other hand, it is a controlled hostile approach to the West and it will not lead to a full confrontation like during the Cold War.
