Abstract

This chapter explores the Kononov v. Latvia case at the European Court of Human Rights through the lens of ontological security, taking it to be an emblematic illustration of competing Russian and Baltic claims on the narrative consistency of their state 'selves' and their conflicting bids on the legitimate remembrance of the Second World War and the Soviet legacy in general.
