Panel discussion about Soviet Symbols After the Soviets, followed by Q&A.
Speakers: Anastasiya Oleksiyenko, Emily Channell-Justice, Paul Goble.
Moderated by Victor Rud
The idea for this discussion was inspired by Anastasiya Oleksiyenko. As a Ukrainian student at New York University at Abu-Dhabi she tried to address the liberal use of Soviet symbols by her classmates on campus. This proved to be an unpleasant experience. The topic of “Soviet Symbols after the Soviets” could generate an excellent discussion, especially in light of recent “cascade” of monuments to Lenin falling across Ukraine and reviving of Soviet symbols in Russia.
