100 Key Events in Ukrainian History (100 Key Events in Ukrainian History)

498 printed pages
The history of Ukraine resembles a half-uncharted map. This is not a

mere coincidence, but the result of the deliberate public policy. Hundreds

of various people serving their mother countries have been working hard

on those blank spots for centuries. Those myth and fake news makers have

done their best to make our history, as well as Ukraine itself, look in descendants’

eyes the way preferred by those who tried to assimilate the heritage

of Kyivan Rus. However, time always puts everything in its place. So this

book is an attempt to collect the events that have shaped the Ukraine we

know today and will promote its further development.

We sought to focus on positive events in Ukrainian history, in other

words, on victories. The image of our country as a helpless continuously

suffering victim that always sings sad songs and is incapable of confronting

external pressure has been exploited for a long time. In fact, an insight

into the actual history of Ukraine proves this image to be false. The voice of

the past provides us with dozens of chronicles, documents and historical

studies. Courageous heroes, strong warriors, talented artists, prominent

statesmen, unrivalled philosophers and scholars — those have been the

people creating our history. And, naturally, they and their achievements

must be revealed and popularized. This work is an effort to unite in a single

volume the highlights of our historic heritage and show that, against all

odds, Ukraine remembers its past and intends to build its own bright future,

considering the extensive rich experience that has been gained.
