About the Episode
In a fiery speech on Monday, Russia’s President Putin laid out a stark, politically motivated, and false account of Ukraine’s history to justify his full-scale invasion. His main argument? Ukraine is historically not a sovereign nation, but a long-lost part of Russia. A part Russia wants—and will take—back. Historian Kathryn David joins host Brian Hanson on Deep Dish to explain the real history and how it explains the conflict today.
