Hiroaki Kuromiya – guest of IZOLYATSIA program at Book Arsenal
The event is supported by Ukraine Today TV channel.

The researcher studied the Donbas as a border area for 10 years, after which he wrote a book Freedom and Terror in the Donbas: A Ukrainian-Russian Borderland, 1870s-1990s. This work is considered one of the most extensive works about Donbas in this period. The book was translated into Ukrainian language in 2002, but has been published in small editions.

During his lecture prof. Kuromiya will not only talk about Donbas issues, but will also touch upon the history of Ukraine as a whole, focusing on its forgotten pages.
