The book “Putin’s War Against Ukraine” is Taras Kuzio’s answer to the lack of understanding of Ukraine in general and the current war in particular in the West. The idea for the book came in 2012-13 with a need to research the Donbas when President Viktor Yanukovych was in power. It was the time when the now-ousted Yanukovych was at the height of his monopoly of power and ironically three months after the project began the Revolution of Dignity started. Consequently, the project, which used to be limited to just researching the Donbas, expanded into something far bigger. Taras Kuzio said that, in 2013-2015, he did 300 interviews with worldwide media and in the past three years he travelled to the Eastern Ukraine and to the war zone 15 times to conduct interviews and collect research.
