Myths of War - How Russia Doesn't Understand their Own History

Myths of War - How Russia Doesn't Understand their Own History

Russia today wants to "deNazify" Ukraine, to eliminate the Ukrainian "fascists" and has systematically killed innocent civilians in this demented drive of theirs. But how did we get to this point - where Russian society supports the eradication of an entire people? Well, a lot of it has to do with misleading and outright lies that they turned into myths of the Second World War. Their version of events is different than the rest of the world, their experiences of the Second World War are so different than those of Ukraine that they don't have the capacity to understand those differences. Soviet propaganda and myth-making have warped their understanding of what occurred during the Second World War. They have not re-evaluated, re-examined and truly explored the history of the Second World War to include all those horrors that came with it. They glorify their past and this glorification has blinded them to the horrors of war. This episode takes a look at the myths that were created, at the consequences of those myths and why Ukraine is now in a full-scale war with Russia.
