The Politics of the Ukrainian Mess

There is an interesting discussion here related to the ongoing mess that is the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.  Not counting the Uniate church there are at least three good sized churches all claiming to be the Ukrainian Orthodox Church plus a couple of smaller splinter groups.  I agree with the observations made in a couple of the comments to the effect that unlike many of the Old Calendarist - "True Orthodox" schisms, the situation in the Ukraine looks be mostly political in nature.
