Public Statement Concerning Instrumentalization of Academic Publications in Ukraine


by Grzegorz Rossolinski-Liebe and Per Anders Rudling


Vadym Kolesnychenko, a member of the parliamentary faction of the Party of Regions, recently published a volume ( of Russian language translations of articles written by Grzegorz Rossolinski-Liebe, Per Anders Rudling and Timothy Snyder.

The articles appeared originally in journals such as Kritika, New York Times Review of Books, Carl Beck Papers and KakanienRevisited. Mr. Kolesnychenko translated and published the volume without the approval or consent of the authors. We regard this conduct as unethical.

Our objections to the political instrumentalization of our work by the Party of Regions are the same as our reservations to analogous instrumentalization by pro-nationalist groups and organizations.
