As part of the History @ Newcastle Seminar Series, the School of Humanities and Social Science presents - 'Ukraine and Russia: Roots of the Current Crisis'.
The virtual civil war that erupted in the Ukraine in March 2014, and the war of words between the USA, the European Union and Moscow, have been exacerbated by the tragic destruction of Malaysian Airlines MH17 and the resultant loss of innocent lives.
Some commentators see the ongoing crisis as a new 'Cold War', especially after Moscow occupied and annexed Crimea and NATO sounded alarm bells.
The first seminar in the series for Semester 2, this special history research seminar aims to unravel the complex roots, old and new, of the current crisis.
Join our esteemed scholars as they present the following topics:
