World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.
The National Corps, the political wing of the far-right Azov battalion currently serving as part of the National Guard of Ukraine, was launched when Russia seized Crimea in 2014. On this week’s episode of World Policy On Air, we talk with journalist Ian Bateson about how this nationalist group uses historical figures and artifacts to help justify its vision for Ukraine’s future.
Read Ian Bateson’s piece “‘A People Without a History Won’t Fight’: The Battle to Control Ukraine’s Past” in the spring issue of World Policy Journal.
