DG anthology: Ukraine in crisis
Since crowds of protesters clashed with police in Kyiv in 2014 and forced the resignation of the pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych, it’s been a tumultuous few years in Ukraine. The Euromaidan revolution, in which more than 100 people were killed, was swiftly followed by a military confrontation with Russia in the Crimea, and renewed allegations of corruption in politics – culminating in the dramatic election of a TV comedian, Volodymyr Zelensky, as president in May 2019. And then in February 2022, Russia launched its brutal and unjust invasion of the country.
Along the way, we’ve been watching Ukraine closely. Here’s a selection of Delayed Gratification articles on eight tumultuous years in the country.
