Conference on the war in Ukraine

On 17 March 2022 I gave an online conference on the following topic: Does Ukraine exist ? History to help to understand the news.

Vladimir Putin launched the invasion of Ukraine by justifying it his decision through two historical assertion:

  1. Ukraine would not exist as a separate nation from Russia and would be an artificial creation

  2. Ukrainian leaders would be nazis who wound threaten beh security of Russia.

To answer this challenge based on a use of history as a political tool and its distortion, it is necessary to do it through tangible historical facts. This conference is a humble contribution to this approach, an approach necessary in Europe and in the world.
