Backstory: Post Soviet Ukraine

Email a Friend

We’ll talk a look at how Ukraine has changed in the 20 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union as part of today’s Backstory segment. We’ll be joined by Timothy Snyder, Professor of History at Yale University. His article "Gogol Haunts the Ukraine" is in the current issue of The New York Review of Books. Mr. Snyder is also the author of The Red Prince: The Secret Lives of a Habsburg Archduke.
