Opinion: Orientalism reanimated or colonial thinking in
Western analysts’ comments on Ukraine
--------------------------------------------
Fabio Belafatti 2014 november 1 d. 16:57

Over the last few months, pro-Russian commentators in many
Western countries have been portraying the Ukrainian events
using a mix of stereotypes that scarily resemble the
rhetoric once typical of racist and imperialist ways of
thinking. As a result of such stereotypes, Ukrainians (but
also Georgians, Moldovans, Poles, Lithuanians, Latvians,
Estonians) have fallen victims to a new form of Orientalism,
a distorted way of thinking that people in the West exhibit
all too often when talking about other parts of the world.
