Neocolonial Subtext In Western Media Coverage Of Ukrainian Crisis

Open access

Abstract

The article examines one of the key factors of modern European philosophy and outlook - neocolonialistic and orientalistic mentality of nowadays Europe and its impact on the informatioanal sphere and the character of inernational relations.

Neocolonialism and orientalism are, thus, studied in the context of the analysis of western media coverage of Ukrainian crisis which occasionaly appears to be stereotyped and deeply engaged.
