Ukrainian museums bend history to suit nationalist narrative

There is a fascinating article in today's Moscow Times which is particularly pertinent given the discussions on this blog recently, about manipulation and omission of history in the service of presenting a palatable nationalist narrative.

Sinn Fein's rewriting of Northern Irish history and elision in the national story of Latvia have been touched on in recent weeks, but this article is particularly fascinating given the divisions which still effect Ukraine and are currently dominating the election there.
