Ukraine: Home

A guide of sources and links about the current crisis in Ukraine, and other sources on Ukrainian history and culture.

Introduction to this guide

As we witness history unfolding before us with the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, there needs to be a free flow of information about what is happening, and to understand more about the people, culture and history of the Ukraine. This guide provides some avenues to learn more. Some of the links are updated daily while others are for seeking more in-depth information about Ukraine.

Display in Bird Library

There is a small display in Bird Library's Map Room on the 3rd floor of two maps, one of Ukraine (2007) and Kyiv (2004), as well as the National Atlas of Ukraine (2007) and the Historical Atlas of Ukraine. The maps are large and they show details and spatial relationships that a laptop or phone screen just cannot provide. Stop in and take a look.
