Over the Horizon of the End of History: The Diary of a Recruit of the Ukrainian War (За горізонтом кінця історії. Щоденник рекрута української війни)

Since the Russian agression against Ukraine started, I have tried to record my observations, thoughts and ideas about Ukrainians' resistance, social changes in the country, people's and my own reactions to various situations and the possible future. I do it from two positions: as a soldier in the Ukrainian army and as a sociologist. The idea of the project is to collect all the notes in an irregular diary, to capture everything that matters and later add some broader interpretation to it.

  • 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.
