Ukraine: Echoes From History | Serhii Plokhy

While the current realities of the war have been well-documented by the international media, in the west its historical roots are still not fully understood. How was the reign of Stalin and Soviet rule experienced in Ukraine? How is Putin able to instrumentalise 20th Century European history, particularly of the Second World War, to justify his actions? What does an analysis of Putin’s rise to power in Russia tell us about the west’s commitment to democracy and the rule of law? And what lessons can we learn from Ukraine about resistance and the protection of statehood?
