Ukraine After Yanukovych

Ukraine After Yanukovych. YaleGlobal. David R. Cameron. February 27, 2014.

In November, Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych rejected signing an Association Agreement with the European Union and later negotiated a bailout deal with Russia. Months of protests led to a week of violence and culminated in Yanukovych’s removal from office. The parliament moved swiftly to reorganize: demobilizing the police, firing most of the government ministers, and electing Oleksandr Turchynov as acting president. The country faces a multitude of challenges, explains David R. Cameron, political science professor and director of the Yale European studies program. The new government must establish itself as the legitimate authority throughout the country, including the eastern and southern regions that have strong ties with Russia.
