The collapse of state socialism and the dissolution of the Soviet Union have had critical impacts on the former state-socialist countries. Alongside with the political and economic restructuring, post-socialism has brought dramatic changes in the context of culture, history, memory, and identity (see, for example, Naumov and Weidenfeld 2019; Young and Light 2001). Although there has been considerable academic interest in these changes over time, the number of theoretical and empirical contributions on nation-building and politics of identity construction in the post-Soviet world is still limited.
