Ukraine’s fight for its independence: the past and the future
ONSDAG 13 APRIL, ONLINE
On 24 February 2022, Russia waged war on Ukraine. To make sense of the reasons leading to and the likely consequences of it, we suggest taking a look at the history of Ukraine and the history of relations between Russia and Ukraine.
What is the role of history in this war, and can history provide us with a better understanding of it? What are the main objectives Russia wants to achieve with its war, and what consequences will it have for long-term developments in Ukraine and Russia?
