Russiaball and Ukraineball have a conflict, because both of them recognize themselves as only successors of Ancient Rus. In past all recognized Russiaball as only successor of Kievan Rusball through Vladimir-Suzdalball and Grand Duchy of Muscowball and that he had Rus's culture, but when Ukraineball become independent, he said that he is only son of Kievan Rusball, because Kievball and several others old Russian cities are on his territory. Ukraineball also says that Russiaball rewrote history and is successor of Golden Hordeball, because a lot of Russian land are on Horde's old territory. Russiaball says that Ukraineball is and not real nation, Rus's moving in East is historical fact that Golden Hordeball's lands were conquered/peacefully taken by him. When Ukraineball was part of Russiaball his name was "Little Russiaball" and Russiaball called himself "Great Russiaball", because it is traditional way to call old and new political centers. Also Russiaball have many others old Russian cities, for example Veliky Novgorodball, that was ac apital city before Kievball and Old Ladogababall, that was a capital before him and where Rus was founded as a state.
