Power Strategies
The Oligarchs and the Revolution in Ukraine

Iryna Solonenko

Deutsche Fassung


Since the late 1990s, a small circle of men in Ukraine have amassed exorbitant wealth due to their privileged access to state resources. The strategies that these oligarchs choose to secure their assets, however, differ greatly. Their reaction to the Euromaidan protest movement, the fall of Viktor Yanukovych, and the separatist activity in eastern Ukraine make this very clear.
