The Ukrainian could use some sort of AI. If I am not mistaken he has currently none.
As it is, you can take Ukrainian cities without any reaction. Kick his troops out of Kiev or any other city, the survivors retreat and sit in the next region for the rest of the game.
I know that it might be a bigger change to implement another AI into the game. But I think, attacking the Ukrainian as Southern White or Red should trigger some sort of reaction. An alternative would be to create some new events: e.g. perhaps if the Red attacks the Ukrainian first the Whites gets an option to ally himself with the Ukrainian and vice-versa. Not exactly historically accurate but still better than the Ukrainian as impassive punching bag.
It might be something to consider for patch 1.02?

AI programming is above my capabilities, so discard this comment if it is stupid: but have you thought about attributing high interest values to the Ukrainian cities and zero interest to everything outside the Ukrainian territory. Wouldn't that keep the Ukrainian AI at home while at the same time enabling it to fight back?
In the east, other rebels rejected the Directory; faced with Volunteer Army invasion, they eventually allied with the Bolsheviks.
In the middle of July (1919), the Directory and their allies agreed to join forces against the Bolsheviks. The West Ukrainian government went into exile, and the West Ukrainian People's Army withdrew across the Zbruch and joined forces with the hard-pressed Ukrainian People’s Army. At first they counterattacked the 12th Army. The combined Ukrainian armies pushed through gaps in the Bolshevik front, seizing Zhmerinka and Vapniarka, and driving back the 12th Army.
By the middle of August, the combined Ukrainian armies held Vinnytsia. At the same time, the 2nd Corps of the Volunteer Army was also advancing toward Kyiv. Soon, 3 divisions of the 12th and 14th Red Armies were cut off between Vapniarka, Odesa, and Kherson. Some of their troops were going over to the Makhnovists, and the group commanders decided to withdraw toward Kyiv. They destroyed their remaining armored trains and marched through the narrowing gap between the Ukrainian People's Army and the Volunteer Army.
