This podcast explores how Ukraine and Korea both struggled to exist under the USSR and Empire of Japan as part of #ProjectUkraine
➡️ This podcast explains the tumultuous history of Ukraine during 1917-1923 when the War of Ukrainian Independence occurred. The new Soviet Union, White Russian Army, Poland and Germany all fought to take control over Ukraine. The Central Rada in Kyiv fought a rival Bolshevik government in Kharkov, but ultimately Ukraine was forced to join the Soviet Union as the SSR.
➡️ This podcast explains the tumultuous history of Korea during 1870-1910 when the powers of the Russian Empire, Qing Dynasty and Empire of Japan fought to control the nation. This led to the First Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895, Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905 and ultimately the annexation of Korea in 1910.
➡️ This podcast explains the tragic history of Ukraine during 1923-1941 whereupon initial Ukrainization under the Korenizatsiya gradually became Russification under Joseph Stalin. Stalin forced collectivization upon Ukraine, leading to the terrible Holodomor and an attempt to destroy Ukrainian culture, language, identity and its existence as a state.
➡️ This podcast explains the tragic history of Korea during 1910-1941 whereupon the Empire of Japan colonized and exploited Korea. While the Empire of Japan promoted some Korean culture, language and education, this eventually was replaced with rigid assimilation until Korea broke free of Japan at the end of WW2.
