Vladislav Davidzon has spent the last decade covering Ukraine during one of the most turbulent and revolutionary periods in its history. A year and a half after the Maidan revolution ushered in a new political reality for Ukraine, Davidzon and his wife founded the Odessa Review, quickly turning it into a top Eastern European cultural publication. Observing and covering Ukraine’s travails from its center, Davidzon even found himself pulled into US President Donald Trump’s first impeachment as a government witness. In this debut book, “From Odessa With Love: Political and Literary Essays in Post-Soviet Ukraine,” Davidzon traces the story of Ukraine’s journey over the last decade, and where it may be going next.
Vladislav Davidzon, nonresident fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center, joins Melinda Haring, deputy director of the Eurasia Center, for a one-on-one conversation about “From Odessa With Love.”
The Eurasia Center’s mission is to enhance transatlantic cooperation in promoting stability, democratic values and prosperity in Eurasia, from Eastern Europe and Turkey in the West to the Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia in the East.
