Welsh designer Patrick Mulder created a haunting image of Vladimir Putin with Hitler's moustache.

A courageous journalist was murdered after warning us twenty years ago about the Russian method of war.

For nearly three decades, the author has warned that, if we ignored Putin's ambitions, he would become a global problem.

Vladimir Putin used historical references and a claim of fighting “fascism” to justify war on Ukraine, despite his own glaring Hitlerian behavior.

Six essays in this issue provide historical context for the tragic and brutal war unfolding in Ukraine. “We need to turn to history,” claims Vladimir Putin, “to have a better understanding of the present and look into the future.” 

We hope you enjoy our work.
