Why history is our weapon in a hybrid war, not Putin's

Hardly anyone stayed silent about Vladimir Putin, that is, his pseudo-historical article with a story about the hard fate of "three fraternal peoples and Little Russia." And the explanation is simple: the impression of the article is heavy. The comrade (who, of course, isn't a comrade to us) seems to be going to war. Either he felt more confident, or he's already on fire somewhere (and, I hope, you can tell me where), but it's an actual step and an unambiguous statement of power over Ukraine. Voluntary power over someone's fragile brains and restless feelings (a historical lecture is, in fact, for them), and an involuntary one, over territories. Moreover, we're talking not only about Crimea and Donbas: he wants everything.

"Go away in what you came!" he shouts after her. "But you can't go further than the gate, the Independent one."

One thing in Putin's article is good. He understands the value of history. You also understand it.

Actual history is what we can defend Ukraine with because it gives us an understanding of ourselves! Your own essence.
