Shedding Light on the Crises in Ukraine

Cambridge Ukrainian Studies on CNN

For months Cambridge Ukrainian Studies has been engaging with the international media (CNN, Al Jazeera, BBC, Sky News) about the crises in Ukraine. In early March 2014, Rory Finnin (Director of CUS) warned of 'another Russian invasion of Ukraine’s sovereign territory on the horizon' and a 'bloody, very real war' between Europe's two largest countries. He has called for an ambitious Marshall Plan of financial assistance for Ukraine and a more nuanced understanding and study of the country. For Cambridge's Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, Finnin has also authored a series of articles on the crises: Fighting 'Crimnesia': The Question of Crimea in the Russia-Ukraine War (9 April 2015); The Crimean Tatar Sürgün: Past and Present (18 May 2014); A Divided Ukraine: Europe's Most Dangerous Idea (27 March 2014); and Ukrainians: Expect-the-Unexpected Nation (19 December 2013), which is also available in Ukrainian and Russian translation.
