The Return of the Ukrainian Far Right: The Case of VO Svoboda

Per Anders Rudling, "The Return of the Ukrainian Far Right: The Case of VO Svoboda," in Ruth Wodak and John E. Richardson (eds.) Analyzing Fascist Discourse: European Fascism in Talk and Text (London and New York: Routledge, 2013), 228-255.

 

Today a significant ultra-nationalist party, the All-Ukrainian Association (Vseukrains’ke Ob’’iednanne, VO) Svoboda, appears to be on the verge of apolitical breakthrough at the national level. This article is a survey, not only of its ideology and the political tradition to which it belongs but also of the political climate which facilitated its growth. It contextualizes the current turn to the right in western Ukraine against the backdrop of instrumentalization of history and the official rehabilitation of the ultra-nationalists of the 1930s and 1940s.
