“Ukrainians and their allies have been clear that the Russian invasion is an explicit act of imperial aggression, and have sought to use this argument to galvanize support from countries and peoples that also suffered from the violence and erasure of Russian colonialism. The question is to what extent this framing resonates with the millions of people in countries once part of the Soviet Union and the Russian empire, and how sustainable any nascent anti-colonial sentiment or solidarity really is.” (03/07/23)
