Abstract

The aim of the research was to identify and assess typical cases of essential differences between Ukrainian and Russian national view on the history of Ukraine during the Second World War, which can be found in Ukrainian and Russian segments of Wikipedia, in the context of modern ethniccultural processes. The author has compared the contents of Ukrainian-written segment of the Wikipedia with the Russian-written one and with several other most fi lled segments in European languages concerning the covering of the history of Ukraine during the Second World War. The researcher used general scientifi c and historical methods in his paper. The detected cases of essential differences refl ect diverse speed and diverse directions of transformations, which are taking place in the social consciousness of Ukrainian and Russian citizens, namely in the historical memory, ethnic and national consciousness. The convergence of the Ukrainian view on the Second World War with the view of Polish, German, French, and English people is in line with the euro-integration movement of the Ukrainian society after the collapse of the USSR. The research was carried out within the scientifi c research paper «Ukraine and Ukrainehood in Ethnic-Cultural Processes of the World» (0115U002511, 2015-2017).
