ABSTRACT
The article addresses the role of identity politics in the current Ukrainian crisis. It shows how Ukraine's divided political elite has used identity politics as a tool for mass mobilization, and how Russia has profited from the "war of identities" in its efforts to prevent the country's orientation towards Europe. The article also outlines the main shifts in collective identities after Maidan and the annexation of Crimea and the dilemmas of new identity politics.
