Our introductory episode focuses on the successful campaign in early 2019 to create a Ukrainian Orthodox Church, independent from the Moscow Patriarchate. This religious nationalism formed a major plank of then-President Poroshenko’s platform for re-election. However, in the 2019 elections, he lost in a landslide to Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian that had impersonated him on a popular show, who ran against him as someone dividing the Ukrainian people. Joining the program to explain the Church that Poroshenko helped create, why it failed him politically, and its implications for geopolitics in Eastern Europe, is Dr. Gene Lemcio, Affiliated Professor in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the UW.
