About the Author

Anna Matveeva is visiting senior research fellow in the Department of War Studies at King's College, London.


In their concentration on the geopolitics of the Ukraine conflict, Western journalists and analysts have been largely indifferent to the people of the Donbas region themselves. Anna Matveeva's research into their views and perspectives, backed by profound insights into the complexity of Ukrainian society, is therefore an essential contribution both to scholarship and to policy-making. -- Anatol Lieven, Georgetown University
Matveeva has written a profoundly moving, well-informed and humane study of one of the most misunderstood internationalized civil conflicts of our time. She cuts through the various mythologized narratives to present a clear and balanced view of how the Donbass conflict started, the actors involved, the structural framework, and how it is experienced today. This profound and erudite work forces us all off our grandstands to walk with the peoples of Ukraine. It is a salutary but necessary lesson for us all. -- Richard Sakwa, University of Kent
