Why are Ukranian's so touchy about Russian's?

My brother recently married a lovely Ukranian woman (she immigrated to the US ten years ago). I don't know any other Ukranian people, but I have several close Russian friends. Every time I mention anything about making Russian food, going to Russian restaurants with my friends etc. she gets upset and acts like she doesn't recognize any of the dishes that they eat. She also says that she cant understand their language. I understand that Ukraine is it's own country NOW but isn't the food, customs, etc pretty much the same as Russia since they share a common history?
