Shades of Orange: A Decade of Ukrainian Democracy

Weiser Center 5th Anniversary Lecture

Viktor Yushchenko, 2005 Viktor Yushchenko, 2005
Viktor Yushchenko, President of Ukraine (2005-10)

Viktor Yushchenko took office after the Orange Revolution, a series of protests and political events that took place in the aftermath of the corrupt and fraudulent 2004 Ukrainian presidential election. The Orange Revolution ended with the election of Viktor Yushchenko over the government-supported candidate Viktor Yanukovich. During his election campaign, Yushchenko was poisoned with hazardous amounts of dioxin and has been recovering since.

He will deliver a major public lecture at the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies on October 3 that examines the social, economic, and political debates taking place in Ukraine today; the challenges it faces in building new political and economic institutions; and Ukraine’s evolving relationship with the European Union.
