|Year of publication
|Russian aggression against Ukraine, which began on 24 February 2022, has so far displaced around 7.5 million people, claimed around 200,000 lives and cost hundreds of billions of dollars in material damage. It is the worst armed conflict in Europe since 1945. To mark the sad anniversary of this war, Masaryk University Press is publishing a book “Journey from Russia”, with the subtitle “Russian aggression against Ukraine and its consequences”. The book is the fourth volume in the “Between the Genres” series and its author, Zdeněk Kříž, a professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences, presents the historical context of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and analyses its course and consequences. The book begins with an important context for understanding the Russian-Ukrainian crisis: the process of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Subsequent chapters deal with the intensification of military reforms on both the Russian and Ukrainian sides, following the illegal annexation of Crimea and the outbreak of the 2014–2015 war in Donbass. A chapter on diplomacy on the eve of the outbreak of war precedes a detailed description of the course of military operations in 2022, coupled with extensive foreign assistance to Ukraine. Finally, the book discusses the possible prospects for conflict during 2023.
