Episode 93: Decolonizing Crimea
with Masha Shynkarenko
In the first podcast in our Ukraine and the World series, Luke Cooper talks to Masha Shynkarenko, a Research Associate with the Ukraine in European Dialogue program at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna and an expert on the Russian colonization of Crimea and the Crimean Tartar national movement.
They discuss the long history of Russian and Soviet imperialism in the Crimean peninsula, life under Russian occupation, and the need for nuance and complexity in discussion of what decolonization of Crimea should look like in practice.
The Ukraine and the World series is an initiative taken in collaboration with Foreign Policy in Focus – Institute for Policy Studies in the United States and our longstanding partner, European Alternatives.
