The cultural dimension of the Russian-Ukrainian war is another crucial battlefield. For centuries, Russia has tried to establish a monopoly on culture by oppressing the colonized peoples.
During this full-scale war, Russia weaponizes culture even more, trying to appropriate and erase Ukrainian culture as a core part of our identity. Using soft power, Russia tries to seduce the world with the idea of Russian mystery and greatness to provoke later sympathy toward Russian people supporting the war.
When the aggressor aims to annihilate Ukraine’s right to sovereignty and authentic culture, united cultural resilience is an integral part of our victory. No culture can exist beyond politics — and the world needs to admit it to build a strong resistance strategy.
