Example text

The 2002 election reinforced the general sentiment of discontent with the government among many Ukrainians and the need for change. T HE P RESENT Political change came with the 2004 presidential election. The election was, de facto, a standoff between two presidential candidates—former prime minister and opposition politician Viktor Yushchenko and then prime minister Viktor Yanukovych—amid an already charged political climate. In November 2004, following the official announcement of a Yanukovych victory, widespread allegations of electoral fraud, combined with popular demands for change, sparked a mass campaign of peaceful public protests and civil disobedience, which became known as the Orange Revolution, named after the campaign colors of Viktor Yushchenko.

It lasted from the beginning of 1919 until the end of 1920 and was mired in conflicts, uprisings, invasions, and outright war. 16 In 1918 the West Ukrainian People’s Republic (ZUNR) was established following the dissolution of the Habsburg Empire. This political entity was meant to include eastern Galicia, Bukovyna, and Transcarpathia but managed to hold on to only Galicia. Its proclamation quickly sparked a war with the newly independent Polish state. During its brief eightmonth existence, the ZUNR entered into a union with the UNR, unifying the Ukrainian lands in one state for the first time in modern history.

A repeated December election resulted in a victory by Victor Yushchenko, who was sworn in as president at the beginning of 2005. Yulia Tymoshenko, another prominent opposition politician and a former deputy prime minister in the 2000 Yushchenko government, became his coalition partner and prime minister, though not for long. CONTEXT 29 Political infighting and discord among the coalition partners in government and a stalemate between President Yushchenko and the Yanukovych-led parliamentary majority lasted through the next parliamentary election in 2006 and resulted in President Yushchenko dissolving parliament in April 2007.
