Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Open Access Chapters from The Frontline: Essays on Ukraine’s Past and Present by Serhii Plokhy, 2021

"The Frontline addresses key events in Ukrainian history, including Ukraine’s complex relations with Russia and the West, the burden of tragedies such as the Holodomor and World War II, the impact of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, and Ukraine’s contribution to the collapse of the Soviet Union. Juxtaposing Ukraine’s history to the contemporary politics of memory, this volume provides a multidimensional image of a country that continues to make headlines around the world. The essays collected here reveal the roots of the ongoing political, cultural, and military conflict in Ukraine, the largest country in Europe."
