Modern Ukraine: Gateway to Europe


Discover the amazing history of the second largest country in Europe beginning with the first East Slavic state, the Kyivan Rus' and its golden age. Follow numerous invasions by the Mongols and the Russians while Ukraine tried to become an autonomous and independent Cossack nation. Learn about its strategic role in the Black Sea and as the bread basket of Europe through European wars, Soviet domination and a crushing genocide. In the end, witness the rise of a free but divided modern country in the 21st Century where another conflict could again ignite the world. A unique colourful presentation by Dr. Stéphane Guevremont, not to be missed.
