Abstract

Abstract:

In electoral terms, party-political ultra-nationalism has been unusually weak in post-Soviet Ukraine. In spite of their increased public visibility and rising nationalist sentiments within Ukraine’s population, the three major forces—the Freedom Party, Right Sector and National Corps—have remained politically marginal since the Euromaidan Revolution of 2013–2014. Neither the loss of Crimea nor the war in the Donbas has translated into electoral support of radical nationalist groups. However, in the context of Russia’s hybrid attack on Ukraine since 2014, far-right activist groups have gained greater acceptance from the Ukrainian public. The activities of anti-democratic non-governmental organizations and their occasional cooperation with the Ukrainian state demand careful monitoring by Ukrainian and foreign watchdogs.
