Russia's attitude and treatment of Ukraine and Ukrainians was UNACCEPTABLE since the 17th Century. However, I would not stress so much GOODBUY as I would constantly and in every detail insist that Russia treats Ukraine no different than it is treating England, France, Germany, Italy or any other European country.
