Description/Abstract of your Event:
Like the history of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, the history of Ukrainian nationalism, fascism, and Naziism, before and during World War 2 and in the post-Soviet period after 1991, is heavily falsified by politicians and the media as well as by â€œexpertsâ€ and â€œscholarsâ€ of Eastern Europe. This panel aims to reassert the history of Ukrainian socialism and of the murderous fascist/Nazi roots and present of the Ukrainian â€œnationalistâ€ movement that, nourished by the West and particularly by the American CIA, now dominates historical memory in Ukraine. We will also discuss the fraudulent â€œscholarshipâ€ that facilitates the acceptance of Ukrainian fascists as â€œliberators,â€ â€œnationalists,â€ â€œfreedom fighters,â€ and â€œdemocrats.â€ Special attention will be given to exposing the lies in the book Bloodlands by Professor Timothy Snyder of Yale University. This prize-winning book, now translated into 26 languages, consists of nothing but lies and falsehoods from beginning to end.
