Russia and Ukraine: Entangled Histories, Diverging States examines the root causes of Russia’s war against Ukraine. The book explains how, since 1991, Russia and Ukraine have diverged politically, ending up on a collision course. Russia slid back into authoritarianism and imperialism, while Ukraine consolidated a competitive political system and pro-European identity. As Ukraine built a democratic nation-state, Russia refused to accept it and came to see it as an “anti-Russia” project.
