  • Foreign Policy (FP): Stop Falling for Russia’s Delusions of Perpetual Victory. The best sources on the war are the Ukrainians on the ground. By Mart Kuldkepp, associate professor of Scandinavian history and politics at University College London. 10.05.2022: “More than two months into the invasion, it is striking how little agency Ukrainians are habitually given in analyzing unfolding events. The realist (in reality, colonialist) understanding of Ukraine as a passive periphery, the fate of which must be inevitably decided by Russia and the West, has led to underestimations of the role of the Ukrainian armed forces, civil society, national and local governments, and, most of all, Ukraine’s strong will to resist.”
  • Euromaidan Press: Hunting fascism in Ukraine, you overlooked fascism in Russia, by Hanna Hrytsenko, 05.05.2022: “In the witchhunt for fascism among fringe groups in Ukraine and especially in the campaign to find Nazis among the Azov Regiment, commentators have overlooked the emergence of genuine state fascism in Russia. This happened because Russian propaganda abuses political illiteracy to justify its military intervention into Ukraine since 2014. Its goal is to plant the seeds of distrust in Ukraine as broadly as possible. It was this message that was bought all over the world when exposing Ukrainian fringe groups with no actual influence or public support. But in fact, it is Russia that embraced the main principles of fascism and incorporated them into its official ideology.” Also see: CDI Dispatch No. 4.
