On February 11, 2019, Dr. Mykola Riabchuk, a Senior Fellow of the Institute of Political and Ethnic Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, delivered a public lecture on “Two Ukraines” Reconsidered: What the Euromaidan and Russo-Ukrainian War Have Wrought and What They Have Not” at Harvard University, USA. In his presentation, he contended that the undeclared Russo-Ukrainian war had substantially changed political views and geopolitical orientations of many Ukrainians. Even more crucially, it caused some shift in identities and value systems. The ethnically Russian and Russophone part of Ukrainian population was in particular challenged by the events and targeted by the Russian propaganda. Most of them, besides the Russia-occupied Crimea and Donbas, stood up for the Ukrainian cause and surprised many foreign observers, let alone Kremlin, with their newly discovered Ukrainian patriotism and civic loyalty. At the same time, the Ukrainian society remained strikingly ambivalent about many key issues, exposing a substantial residual attachment to various aspects of the imagined “East Slavonic” community that are barely compatible with a genuinely Ukrainian loyalty and identity. In the lecture, Mykola Riabchuk examined the available sociological data and argued that the new, future-oriented type of Ukrainian identity was evolving in a painstaking struggle with old habits, views and system of values. It may well supersede all the ethnic, linguistic and other divides in Ukrainian society if the new social trust that emerged between various groups during the war against the common enemy is properly institutionalized and effectively supported by both the functional state and nascent civil society.

On December 4, 2018, Dr. Mykola Riabchuk, a Senior Fellow of the Institute of Political and Ethnic Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, delivered a public lecture on “How civil is the Ukrainian civil society today?” at the University of Regensburg. In his presentation, the scholar defined Ukraine as a country with a relatively strong civil society that proved its strength during both the “Orange” (2004) and “Euromaidan” (2013-14) revolutions and the ensuing Russo-Ukrainian war that invoked unprecedented civic mobilization and volunteer movement in support of the beleaguered state and its dilapidated armed forces. Since then, Ukrainian civil society has also played an important role, alongside with some international sponsors, in “sandwiching” the evasive Ukrainian government and pushing it toward more radical reforms and crackdown on corruption.

To provide a more nuanced picture, the speaker addressed three contiguous problems. First, he discussed the internal vulnerability of civil society groups and some leaders to corruption and peccability that is skilfully used by the oligarchy to undermine credibility of the whole movement. Secondly, he mentioned their overwhelming dependence on international grants and sponsors and rather weak grass-root activity, especially beyond the large cities. And thirdly, he examined a rather ambiguous, often evasive stance of many civil society leaders vis-à-vis “uncivil society” that has also been boosted by the revolutionary upheaval. Today, however, it represents quite a threat for the fledgling Ukrainian democracy – not so much by its quantity and electoral strength but by its radical ideology, hate speech, and proclivity to violence. The speaker emphasized the need for more balanced assessment of all these problems inasmuch as they are often silenced or downplayed, on one side, and overblown and misinterpreted, on the other.

On November 30, 2018, on the basis of the Faculty of History of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, a scientific and practical conference “Transformation of the national idea in accordance with the challenges of time” was held. The event was organized by the Faculty of History of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, the Centre for the Political Values Study, and the International Renaissance Foundation.
