Stable Instability, Dynamic Blockage
Ukraine’s Political System und Its Defects

Ellen Bos

Deutsche Fassung


The expectations of radical political and economic change that were connected with the Orange Revolution were not fulfilled. Continuity in personnel and a lack of basic consensus on the political rules of the game are responsible for the blockages, stagnation, and corruption that mark the system.
