Ukraine's Euromaidan

January 14, 2014

UkraineEuromaidanA wave of demonstrations and civil unrest erupted in Ukraine in November 2013 when the Ukrainian government suddenly suspended preparations for signing an Association Agreement with the European Union. The protest quickly transformed into a social movement called “Euromaidan” calling for stronger democratic institutions, rule of law and independence from Russian dominance. Crowds have reached over 800,000 and the movement is considered Ukraine’s largest since the Orange Revolution of 2004.

Join us for an evening roundtable discussions on recent events in Ukraine with experts Scott Radnitz, Volodymyr Lysenko, Olha Krupa and Eugene Lemcio from UW, SPU and Seattle University.
