MEMOCRACY team members, Dr. Andrii Nekoliak and Dr. Dovilė Sagatienė, have published a blog post on the political and legal symbolism of May 9 in East European ‘region of memory’. The blog entry takes a stock of legal measures by Lithuania and Ukraine to countervail Russia’s decades-long mnemo-political aggressiveness. The authors position both nations as sharing a number of common mnemo-political characteristics since obtaining national independence in 1991. They trace the evolution of war symbols legislation in both countries in the face of Russian aggressiveness in the region.
