The 2014 Russia?Ukraine conflict has transformed relations between Russia and the West into what many are calling a new cold war. The West has slowly come to understand that Russia?s annexations and interventions, interference in elections, cyber warfare, disinformation, assassinations in Europe and support for anti-EU populists emerge from Vladimir Putin?s belief that Russia is at war with the West.

This book shows that the crisis has deep roots in Russia?s inability to come to terms with an independent Ukrainian state, Moscow?s view of the Orange and Euromaidan revolutions as Western conspiracies and, finally, its inability to understand that most Russian-speaking Ukrainians do not want to rejoin Russia. In Moscow?s eyes, Ukraine is central to rebuilding a sphere of influence within the former Soviet space and to re-establishing Russia as a great power. The book shows that the wide range of ?hybrid? tactics that Russia has deployed show continuity with the actions of the Soviet-era security services.

russia’s fraught relationship with ukraine is an essential element of europe’s evolving landscape. taras kuzio and paul d’anieri offer a refreshing look at the sources of russian conduct toward ukraine. they challenge conventional analyses by exploring deeper roots of russian-ukrainian conflict and placing russian tactics against ukraine in a broader historical context. their study is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the future of russia’s relations with ukraine.

  • Daniel S. Hamilton, Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Professor, School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University


taras kuzio and paul d’anieri provide an invaluable guide of the complexities of current developments in and russia's military aggression against ukraine. the book draws on comprehensive field research, demonstrates deep knowledge and understanding of ukrainian-russian relations, and presents an alternative to much of the western writing on the crisis. the book will be an invaluable source for journalists, policymakers and teaching in academia. 

  • Andriy Meleshevych, President, National University Kyiv Mohyla Academy


two of the west's preeminent ukraine scholars have written an indispensable book that clearly, concisely and persuasively demonstrates that vladimir putin's war against ukraine is not a response to western behaviour but the product of longstanding tendencies within russian policy. taras kuzio and paul d'anieri’ book is a much welcome antidote to the superficiality and ignorance that characterise so much of western writing on russia and ukraine.
