More about the presentation 

The Ukraine was always an important intersection between Europe and Asia and therefore was  hotly contested. It was only at the end of the First World War that the Ukraine became an independent state but then it failed almost immediately. The Austrian historian,  Christian Cwik, will help us understand the current international crisis by sharing  historical insight into the political and cultural genesis of the Ukraine.
