The Revolution of Dignity (November 2013 – February 2014) has opened new opportunities for the development of Ukraine. However, the expectations of those who supported changes in the political system have not been met. The impoverishment of the majority of the population is leading to dissatisfaction in the results of the Revolution.
Would it be possible to change negative tendencies? Will relations have chances to be improved? What are the drivers of possible recovery? What impact will economic hardships have on political development?
