This paper attempts to give an overview of the life of Ukrainian nationalist Stepan Bandera and his historical influence in the current political battles in Ukraine over national identity. This paper looks at the different methods that both Ukrainian and Russian media sources have used to paint Ukrainian nationalism in the wake of the Maidan Revolution in 2014 as either a positive force for reinforcing Ukrainian national identity and moving the country closer to the West, or a negative one that connects the current government and far-right political parties to the Ukrainian nationalists of Stepan Bandera who collaborated with the Nazis during World War II.
