 The author’s presentation of the book titled Mazepa. Chronicles of the Orthodox Nobleman. Ruina, the first novel by the famous researcher of the Hetmanate, Doctor of Historical Sciences Tetiana Tairova, will be presented at 12:00 on October 8 in the Citadel of Baturyn Fortress.

 As an academic, Tetiana specialises in the history of the Hetmanate and has dozens of monographs and articles written on it.

 “I have been studying the history of the Hetmanate for over 30 years and Ivan Mazepa himself for over 18 years. I really wanted to convey my knowledge to a much larger audience, hence the format of a novel, which allows telling about the tragic and heroic era as well as making the characters “more relatable”, revealing the inner workings of their minds and their feelings. All the protagonists and events in the book are real and based on the documents available in the archives,” Tetiana Tairova explains. 


 During the presentation, Viktor Myrskyi, General Producer of FILM.UA Group, and Volodymyr Borodianskyi, Member of the Supervisory Board of Media Group Ukraine, will announce the shooting of the series based on the novel Mazepa. Chronicles of the Orthodox Nobleman. Ruina by Tetiana Tairova.

 “In cooperation with Media Group Ukraine and Tetiana Tairova, FILM.UA starts preparations for the series about Mazepa. The plot of the book is to be included in the script. We fully support Tetiana’s work and hope that the upcoming series will help promote both this book and future novels in the Chronicles of the Orthodox Nobleman series,” said Viktor Myrskyi.

 “Victor and I have long dreamed of working on a project that would be interesting to both OLL.TV viewers and viewers of the TV channel “Ukraine”. Victor offered a series about Mazepa and today FILM.UA is already working on the script. This project is not just a TV series, it is part of the content strategy of Media Group Ukraine,” said Volodymyr Borodianskyi.

 The citadel of Baturyn Fortress is the main hetman’s residence in the city. It was the “heart” of Baturyn, the “government quarter”, and in 1708, it became its main cemetery.

 “Baturyn played a key role in the life of Ivan Mazepa. It was here, in the hetman’s residence of Ivan Samoilovych, that his path led in 1674, the path described by Tatiana Tairova in her novel,” said Natalia Rebrova, Director General of the Hetman’s Capital Baturyn National Historical and Cultural Reserve.

 Visitors to the event will see a dynamic military and historical reconstruction of one of the plots in the book and the exhibition titled Hetman Ivan Mazepa, Prince of the Holy Roman Empire with unique newly discovered artefacts from the Vienna Archive and the collection of Alexei Sheremetyev.   

 At the end of the presentation, participants will receive books signed by Tetiana Tairova, the author of Mazepa. Chronicles of the Orthodox Nobleman. Ruina. 

 The event is organized by: Hetman’s Capital National Historical and Cultural Reserve, Natalia Rebrova; Laurus Publishing House, Polina Lavrova; FILM.UA Group, Viktor Myrskyi; Member of the Supervisory Board of Media Group Ukraine, Volodymyr Borodianskyi; Sheremetyev Museum, Alexei Sheremetyev; Svitanok Konotop Local Charitable Organisation, Yevhen Sur.
