In Radio Free Winnipeg’s third episode on fascism & Antifa, hosts Scott Price and Greg Gallinger interview historian John Paul-Himka (professor emeritus, University of Alberta) about the national narratives used by Ukrainian Nationalist groups both in Ukraine and in Canada that not only glorify war criminals and Nazi collaborators but trade in historical revisionism.
Plus: Why are Ukrainian national myths important both domestically and in terms of wider geo-political trends in the western world? Why have these nationalistic narratives become more common and why do they find a wider audience today? And how do Fascist groups use these narratives to their own advantage?
