I made a short break in writing the series of analytical articles on Ukraine – Russia relations that I have been working on in recent weeks.

—         Evgeniy Petrovich, please, tell us about Stalin or Bukharin, — one of us used to ask him in the beginning of a lecture, as soon as Sitkovskiy sat down at his table. – We will read about Hegel ourselves.

Sitkovskiy had unique life experience, he personally knew Lenin, Bogdanov, Stalin and other leaders of the Soviet past. The History spoke to us through Sitkovskiy.
