DVD - 2015
Rate this:
"This balanced and highly informative four-part- documentary series provides an unprecedented look at the cultural and political history of Ukraine. Interviews with historians combined with unique archival footage paints a raw and immediate portrait of a nation dramatically fighting for and maintaining its independence." Program 1.: The introduction of Christianity in 988 and the formation of a powerful state, Kyiv Rus, marked the beginning of Euro-centric history for the Eastern Slavs. Paradoxically, 250 years later, after the Tartar-Mongol invasion, the state of Kyiv Rus ceased to exist, it was the very Mongol occupation that induced the formation of three nations-the Ukrainians, the Russians and the Byelorussians. Kyiv would return to its former splendor and, owing to Petro Mohyla and others, Ukrainian culture would develop in tandem with European culture.
