Ukraine: Current Issues and U.S. Policy

Pagination or Media Count:
In February 2014, the Kremlin-supported government of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych collapsed. The demise of the regime was brought about by bitter protests that had erupted in Kyivs Maidan Square in late 2013 over a decision by the government to reject closer relations with the European Union. What followed the turmoil of early 2014 was the emergence of a pro-Western, pro-reform government and an energized public generally anxious to lessen Moscows influence, committed to addressing the need for serious reform, and determined to draw closer to Europe and the United States.
