Opinion: Will Russia revive the Grand Duchy of Lithuania?

 (5)
The idea of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania is becoming relevant again today. Russia brought it back to life by carrying on an open war with Ukraine. Ukrainians joke sadly that Vladimir Putin has done at least one good thing: he’s united the Ukrainian people. But now, Ukrainians need to rethink their identity on a broader level. And in that context, the Grand Duchy, or Rzeczpospolita, doesn’t look so outdated anymore.
