Navigating through contested German-Russian-Ukrainian Narratives

The competing, radically divergent historical narratives on Russian-Ukrainian relations and on the evolution of European security since the end of the Cold War are a major stumbling block for an effective search for a way out of the current confrontation between Russia, the West and Ukraine and a return to diplomacy, dialogue and cooperative security. In cooperation with the Institute for Law and Public Policy, ILPP (Moscow), inmedio implemented a German-Russian dialogue project in 2018 which was developed into a trilateral Ukrainian-Russian-German format in 2019 and 2020, including the Ukrainian NGO Ideas for Change (Kyiv) as a partner. 18 experts from academia, think tanks, NGOs and journalists created a joint publication, ‘Gaps and Overlaps’.
