Ep. № 61 - Crimea: a fresh view on its past and present - with Rory Finnin

December 15, 2021

This episode is about Crimea. Not only about Crimea’s seizure and occupation by Russia in 2014, but about its longer history: the history of Stalin’s brutal deportation of Crimean Tatars in 1944, the history of Russian colonialism, of erasing memory and the displacement of people, the history of Ukrainian-Crimean Tatar relations, and the history of cultural solidarity and intercultural memory. UkraineWorld’s chief editor Volodymyr Yermolenko talks with Rory Finnin, Director of the Ukrainian Studies Programme at the University of Cambridge.
