Vasyl’ M. Tkachenko. "The inseparable heritage of early medieval Rus’. On the celebration of the 1150th anniversary of the origin of Russian statehood"

The chapter discusses the current politics of memory of the Russian Federation in the context of the l,150th anniversary of the origin of Russian statehood. The main celebrations of the anniversary took place on September 21-23,2012 in Veliky Novgorod. Despite this, it seems that no consensus as to the date of the original event has ever been reached among the representatives of Russian academia - neither is there any unanimous interpretation of its meaning. Indeed, Russias jubilee activities were among the matters that influenced the rise ofvigilance among Ukrainian scholars concerning the issue of Ukrainian national identity. This attitude is illustrated by numerous publications on the subject of the historic past, published both in scholarly journals and in the commercial press.
