German academic mentioned in an Integrity Initiative document
Andreas Umland is a German political scientist, historian and Russian interpreter, specializing in contemporary Russian and Ukrainian history. He is a Member of the Institute for Central and East European Studies (ZIMOS) at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstad. He lives in Kyiv, while teaching at the National University of "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy". His studies of Russian and Ukrainian politics focus on the post-Soviet extreme right, where his angle is maximizing extreme right influence in Russia for a Western readership, where "President Vladimir Putin's policies are more likely to find individual ideas and practices that are reminiscent of the policies of the Third Reich", while glossing over Ukrainian problems.
