Power Lines: From Ukraine to the World
Author: Message HeardSubscribed: 83Played: 1,743
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has changed the world. The war’s significance in the 21st century is unparalleled: its reverberations can be felt not just in Kyiv and Moscow, but from Beijing to Washington DC. So how did this country on the Eastern edge of Europe come to play such a significant role in geopolitical events? Why is its future so pivotal to Europe’s stability? And, crucially, how have the conflict’s consequences affected the lives of the people who call Ukraine their home?
This series will hear top global minds discuss everything from Eastern European history to modern global food security, as led by Kyiv Independent hosts, Jakub Parusinski and Anastasiia Lapatina. Combining on-the-ground expertise with a global perspective, Power Lines explores the impact and influence of the war on 21st-century geopolitics, global power structures and the survival and self-determination of the Ukrainian people.

History and Context
I love this podcast. It is very informative and well produced. Listening allows me to stay current on the situation in the Ukraine but also learn a lot about its history and culture and its unique place in the world. Like the title suggests this is not only a podcast about Ukraine. It also talks about wider world in which Ukraine is placed. This podcast is great for better understanding of Soviet and Russian imperialism seen through the lens of colonised people rather than the much better known lens of the colonizer. It is totally a missing puzzle piece that a lot of westerners needs to hear. The hosts are top notch, music is good. Highly recommended.
