We at SEN Journal blog can’t keep up with the fast pace of events that are occurring in the Ukraine, so we thought that we’d share the links to a few websites and blogs which provide live (or frequent) updates on what’s happening:
- The New York Times – the Lede blog
- The Telegraph
- Al Jazeera – Ukraine Live Blog
- Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty – Live Blog: Ukraine on the Brink
- Kyiv Post
- The Interpreter – Ukraine Liveblog
Additionally, we’ve picked out a few articles which illuminate the current situation in Crimea, the prospect of separatism in the Ukraine and, of course, how these issues are entwined with the themes of nationalism and ethnicity:
- Springtime of Nations blog (02/03/14) features an insightful overview of the politics of Ukraine, Crimea and the Russian stronghold over the region.
- Al Jazeera (02/03/14) has posted a useful timeline of key events of the Ukraine crisis, beginning from November 1, 2013, when then Ukraine President Yanukovych announced that he would not sign the free association agreement with the European Union.
- The Council of the European Union blog (28/02/14) presents a decent overview of background resources on the Ukraine, including current news analysis and academic literature, with a focus on separatism and the situation in Crimea.
- Russia Beyond the Headlines (27/02/14) analyses the situation in Crimea and posits three possible scenarios of what could happen in the region.
- Vostok Cable (24/02/14) features a post by ASEN’s Ellie Knot on identity politics in the Crimean region.
