    Post-Soviet Ukraine has been considered a classic case of a “cleft country” torn between the agrarian Ukrainian-speaking West and the industrial Russian-speaking East. The Russian-Ukrainian war has revealed that despite strong regional divisions, Ukraine proved to be a very resilient political community, which led to the emergence of “the third Ukraine.” It is a Ukraine of neither the West nor the East, but of the Center, meant both in regional and political terms, as highlighted by Professor Yaroslav Hrytsak (Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv).

    “Most empires, but also most nation states are multicultural. The problem with the nation state is that it claims to be the state of one group. But all nation states include many groups. So we must ask the question, how are the minority groups treated? Do they have full citizenship? Often they do not.” From ResetDOC’s latest video-interview to Pieter Judson, Professor of 19th and 20th century history at the European University Institute. It was shot on the margins of Reset DOC’s Dublin Conference 2023, “Nationalism, Nation-Building, and the Decline of Empires.”
