Russian President Vladimir Putin has gone to extraordinary lengths to commemorate the Second World War. Even though the war ended over 77 years ago, Putin has made World War II memory central to contemporary Russian national identity.
This talk will explore how war remembrance serves Putin’s interests, including with regard to his war in Ukraine.
