Diagnosis. The War

The full-scale war that began on February 24, 2022 will quickly make everybody forget about that first period of the Russian-Ukrainian war. However, it lasted for eight years, was filled with a litany of tragedies and victories, and gave rise to lots of personal stories. Without understanding of this period, it will be rather difficult to analyze this new full-scale stage of the war. And it seems like now is the last chance to capture that experience before it is overshadowed by the new one. 

Meanwhile Dukh i Litera Publishing House and the Ukrainian Military Medicine Association have just fulfilled an oral history project entitled “Diagnosis. The War,” wherein they have succeeded in recording 100 in-depth interviews with military personnel, doctors, volunteers, psychologists, and other people engaged in the first period of the Russian-Ukrainian war. However, they didn’t have time to make these materials public. That is why the main idea of this project is to compose the manuscript of a future book entitled Diagnosis. The War, which will consist of the oral histories of different people engaged in the Russian-Ukrainian war between 2014 and 2022.

  • The Longest February: One Year of Full-Scale War
    There has not been a moment since the morning of 24 February 2022 left untouched by the Russo-Ukrainian War. A wry commonplace among Ukrainians is that February 2022 still hasn’t ended – we are now in its 13thmonth. It feels both impossible and essential to reflect on the past year, to think about where we stand now, and to envision the future. Here we present a selection of publications by members of the IWM community tied in some way to the anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, in English and German. Many of the authors represented here are part of the IWM's Documenting Ukraine program. New items are added on an ongoing basis.
