81. The Ukraine Conflict - How to stay sane when different narratives of the war conflict‪.‬ The Burning Archive

    • History

What will the Russia-Ukraine-NATO War be known as in the history books? How do we make sense of this event, and how do we avoid losing our heads by getting sucked into the contending narratives of the war.

"If there is just one thing I would ask all listeners to do it is to reflect on the stories, the histories of this conflict in Ukraine that you are being told and you are telling yourself, and try to find the truth in at least one alternative history. Only that way can we find our way back to dialogue and diplomacy. Only that way can we face the reality of this war."

This video/podcast places the Ukraine conflict in a broader historical context. Is this the start of World War II, or are there other models and stories from history that provide a better framework to compare with events of today? And how can we as ordinary citizens deal with the contending narratives about the war and its history?

While there are many channels that cover the daily news and updates on the war in Ukraine, this podcast/channel takes a step back and sets out a clear narrative of the war in Ukraine that involves Ukraine, Russia and NATO, principally the USA.

This episode is the third in a three-part playlist reviewing the war in Ukraine in 2022. It is being released in three instalments over the next five days. Parts 2 and 3 will discuss 12 alternative narratives or histories of the war and its links to the emerging multipolar world.

The video is also available as a podcast on Spotify, Apple and other platforms.
