MIP: Ukrainian Edition of "Putin's War Against Ukraine," Book by Taras Kuzio, Presented in Kyiv
On 12 March 2019, the Ukrainian edition of “Putin's War Against Ukraine: Revolution, Nationalism, and Crime,” a book about the underlying causes and peculiarities of Russian aggression against Ukraine, was presented at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Centre.
The book was published with the support of the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine within the framework of its publishing support programme for eastern Ukraine and promotion of Ukraine in the world.
“We will do our best to have this book delivered to the East [of Ukraine] and make it available at military units, community centres, and universities; and to present the English version of the book at Ukrainian diplomatic missions,” the State Secretary of the Ministry, Artem Bidenko, was quoted as saying.
He added that last year nearly half a million copies of 175 books had been published within the framework of the programme. Most of them were about Ukraine’s history, its present state, the myths of Russian propaganda, and fight against it.
Taras Kuzio, Ph.D., the author of “Putin’s War Against Ukraine,” is a professor in the Department of Political Science at National University Kyiv Mohyla Academy and a visiting research fellow at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University.
The book consists of two parts. Part one outlines the broad context of Russia’s perception of Ukraine during the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, showing that Putin’s current policy is virtually their continuation. It also provides a historical perspective of Donbas and south-eastern Ukraine in general. Part two describes current events, including war crimes and human rights violations.
