History

British scholar, diplomat, politician and businessman, William Edward David Allen, has conducted a thorough geopolitical analysis of the Ukrainian region from Kievan Rus' to the outbreak of World War II. The development of Ukraine and its disputed borders can only be understood when considering the relations between it and Lithuania, Poland, Austria-Hungary, the Scandinavian countries, the Ottoman Empire, the Mongol khanates in the Crimea, the Cossacks and Hetmans and, of course, Tsarist Russia, and later between Germany and the Soviet Union . Allen's story is interesting in terms of the national question, which plagues multinational empires, including all of Ukraine's neighboring states, past and present, and which is still the cause of tension in Ukraine.

David Satter arrived in the Soviet Union in June, 1976 as the correspondent of the Financial Times of London and entered a country that was a giant theater of the absurd. After 1982, he was banned from the Soviet Union but allowed back in 1990, and finally expelled in 2013 on the grounds that the secret police regarded his presence as 'undesirable.' From 1976 to the present, he saw four different Russias, which differed from each other radically while remaining essentially the same. From 1976 to 1982, the Soviet Union was at the height of its world power and its people were in thrall to an absurd ideology. With the advent of Gorbachev's perestroika, the Soviet population was liberated from the ideology and the state hurtled to its inevitable collapse. When independent Russia emerged from the wreckage, the failure to replace the missing ideology with genuine moral values led to Russia's complete criminalization.

Little Starhorodivka, a village of three streets, lies in Ukraine's Grey Zone, the no-man's-land between loyalist and separatist forces. Thanks to the lukewarm war of sporadic violence and constant propaganda that has been dragging on for years, only two residents remain: retired safety inspector turned beekeeper Sergey Sergeyich and Pashka, a rival from his schooldays. With little food and no electricity, under constant threat of bombardment, Sergeyich's one remaining pleasure is his bees. As spring approaches, he knows he must take them far from the Grey Zone so they can collect their pollen in peace. This simple mission on their behalf introduces him to combatants and civilians on both sides of the battle lines: loyalists, separatists, Russian occupiers and Crimean Tatars. Wherever he goes, Sergeyich's childlike simplicity and strong moral compass disarm everyone he meets. But could these qualities be manipulated to serve an unworthy cause, spelling disaster for him, his bees and his country?

Spanning sixty tumultuous years of Ukrainian history, this multigenerational saga weaves a dramatic and intricate web of love, sex, friendship, and death. At its center: three women linked by the abandoned secrets of the past?secrets that refuse to remain hidden. While researching a story, journalist Daryna unearths a worn photograph of Olena Dovgan, a member of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army killed in 1947 by Stalin's secret police. Intrigued, Daryna sets out to make a documentary about the extraordinary woman?and unwittingly opens a door to the past that will change the course of the future. For even as she delves into the secrets of Olena's life, Daryna grapples with the suspicious death of a painter who just may be the latest victim of a corrupt political power play. From the dim days of World War II to the eve of Orange Revolution, The Museum of Abandoned Secrets is an 'epic of enlightening force' that explores the enduring power of the dead over the living.

The stories in Ukrainian film director, writer, and dissident Oleg Sentsov’s debut collection are as much acts of dissent as they are acts of creative expression. These autobiographical stories display a mix of nostalgia and philosophical insight, written in a simple yet profound style looking back on a life's path that led Sentsov to become an internationally renowned dissident artist. Sentsov's charges seemingly stem from his opposition to Russia's invasion and occupation of eastern Ukraine where he lived in the Crimea. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison in August 2015 on spurious terrorism charges after he was kidnapped in his house and put through a grossly unfair trial by a Russian military court, marred by allegations of torture. Many of the stories included here were read during international campaigns by PEN International, the European Film Academy, and Amnesty International, among others, to support the case for Sentsov across the world. Sentsov's final words at his trial,

The ascension of Vladimir Putin-a former lieutenant colonel of the KGB-to the presidency of Russia in 1999 was a strong signal that the country was headed away from democracy. Yet in the intervening years-as America and the world's other leading powers have continued to appease him-Putin has grown not only into a dictator but an international threat. With his vast resources and nuclear arsenal, Putin is at the center of a worldwide assault on political liberty and the modern world order. For Garry Kasparov, none of this is news. He has been a vocal critic of Putin for over a decade, even leading the pro-democracy opposition to him in the farcical 2008 presidential election. Yet years of seeing his Cassandra-like prophecies about Putin's intentions fulfilled have left Kasparov with a darker truth: Putin's Russia, like ISIS or Al Qaeda, defines itself in opposition to the free countries of the world. As Putin has grown ever more powerful, the threat he poses has grown from local to regio

In 1942, an eighteen-year-old boy, Victor Astafyev, volunteered for the front. He served on the front line, suffered several serious wounds, was awarded the Order of the Red Star and the medal 'For Courage', was discharged in 1945 with the rank of 'ordinary'. The war, seen through the eyes of a simple soldier - one of hundreds of thousands who, in inhuman conditions, daily fight with death - is the central theme in the work of the outstanding Russian writer Viktor Astafyev. The novel 'Cursed and Killed' is the result of many years of reflection and one of the most dramatic, tragic and truthful stories about the war as a 'crime against reason'. The piercing frankness of the writer, his uncompromising unwillingness to hide the 'inconvenient' facts and to embellish the harsh truth, betraying his own memories and memory of the fallen, won the love of millions of readers for Astafyev's works.

William Fuller, a recognized expert on Russian military history, selected the notorious case of Colonel S. Myasoyedov and General V. Sukhomlinov as the topic of his new book. Involving the investigative materials not yet used by historians, the author combines the biographical narrative full of living details with the analysis of police, intelligence and judicial practices and offers a perceptive reconstruction of the spy mania of the military and political elites of late imperial Russia. The central questions around which the book is built up: how and why was it possible to incriminate officers, albeit morally impaired and unclean in hand, but never inclined to treason and not destined, the worst crime in wartime and convince a large number of people of their guilt?

World War 2
The book is dedicated to the Soviet military elite of the 1930s. The author studied intra-army groups - original fraternities that originated during the civil war and continued to exist in the 30s of the 20th century within the military elite. It is rightly pointed out to contradictions and even mutual hostility between them. The question is why JV Stalin destroyed a significant part of his military elite on the eve of World War II. Based on a wealth of material, primarily archival, the author offers his own interpretation of events. The book is intended for specialist historians, teachers, students of higher educational institutions, teachers, as well as for all those interested in the problems of military and social history.

Sergey Dovlatov was born in evacuation and died in exile. As a writer, he was formed in Leningrad, but success came to him in America, where he lived since 1979. His artistic thought with a visible paradox, justified by life experience, is simple and noble: to tell how people live strangely, sometimes sadly laughing, then sadly grieving. There are no righteous people in his books, because there are no villains in them either. The writer knows: both heaven and hell are within ourselves. Dovlatov believed in the 'smile of reason.' At the end of the second millennium, this worthy, reserved position brought to Sergei Dovlatov widespread fame. Alas, he died just at the moment when fame arrived. At home for many years now Dovlatov is one of the most consistently readable authors. His prose is staged, screened, studied in schools and universities, translated into major European and Japanese languages. Sergey Dovlatov said that he would like to be like Chekhov.

A new book by the famous philologist and historian, professor of the University of Cambridge, Alexander Etkind, tells how the Russian Empire took possession of foreign territories and developed its own lands, colonizing many peoples, including the Russians themselves. Etkind elaborates on the limits of the application of the Western notions of colonialism and orientalism to Russian culture, the formation of the language of self-colonization among Russian historians, the serfdom and the peasant community as colonial institutions, and attempts at literature to solve in their own way the problems of internal colonization posed by Russian history. Moving from history to literature and back, Etkind gives unexpected interpretations of critical texts about the imperial experience, whose authors were Defoe and Tolstoy, Gogol and Conrad, Kant and Bakhtin

Российская империя - одна из самых обширных и долговечных в истории. Она единственная после своей гибели в 1917 г. Сумела воссоздать себя под иным названием, вернув себе все прежние завоевания. После вторичного краха в 1992 г. ее наследницей стала Россия, во многом напоминающая все ту же империю, какой она родилась в 1552 г. Сегодняшняя Россия точно так же простирается на два континента - Европейский и Азиатский; точно так же объединяет в своих границах множество цивилизаций и народов; точно так же является христианским государством, в котором, однако, живут и мусульмане, и даже буддисты. России необходимо обеспечить мирное сосуществование столь разных своих граждан и решить вопрос: европейская она страна или евразийская. Бурная история Российской империи, ставшей теперь Российской Федерацией, ставит вопрос, имеющий ключевое значение для будущего континента, называемого Европой, и Европейского союза, границы которого пока не определены.
