The world is rediscovering Ukraine as a result of the atrocities perpetrated by Russia in its aggressive war against the Ukrainian people. However, Ukraine was non-existence as a rich, sovereign culture and a nation with a very long history has been a defining feature of Western academia’s intellectual space, especially before Russia’s invasion of Donbas and illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014. Additionally, Ukrainian studies has received scant attention as a distinct discipline in Europe and the United States. Simultaneously, admiration for Russian culture predominated. Even so, in recent weeks, a legitimate question has arisen: Is Russian culture possible after Bucha?
