Understanding Russia's War on Ukraine through the Holodomor

Daria Mattingly of the University of Cambridge and Leverhulme Early Career Fellow (both of the UK) was the guest speaker at the 2022 Toronto Annual Ukrainian Famine Lecture.

In her 14 November 2022 lecture, Dr. Mattingly explored how the Holodomor offers a key to understanding the current war in Ukraine, both from a historical perspective and by revealing parallels in the objectives, methods, and outcomes.

The Toronto Annual Ukrainian Famine Lecture was initiated in 1998 and is organized by HREC and co-sponsored by the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, University of Toronto; the Canadian Foundation for Ukrainian Studies; the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, Toronto; the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine, University of Toronto; and St. Vladimir Institute (Toronto).
