About the lecture:
The Crimean Tatars, the Crimean Karaites, the Krymchaks and the Urums are indigenous peoples of Ukraine. What unites the Bulgarian, German, and Jewish settlers in Ukraine with the peasants from the Poltava region village Turbaї and the Crimeans? Why Russian Federation is so successful in manipulating the facts from the history of the southern regions of Ukraine? What relations exist between “decommunization”, historical toponymy, and how Ukrainian society perceives the changes of geographical names? What lessons could we learnt from this complex story?
