Understanding Ukrainian Society, Four Years After Maidan

Four years ago, Ukrainians stood on the Maidan, in the center of Kyiv, protesting against Russian-friendly President Viktor Yanukovych and his corrupt regime, while calling for closer ties with European Union. While Ukraine has reached certain milestones in its path towards the EU, it continues to struggle with corruption alongside Russian aggression. Hromadske  speaks with Kyiv International Institute of Sociology’s Junior Research Analyst Liana Novikova, Democratic Initiatives Foundation’s Political Analyst Petro Burkovskyi (starting from 24:09) and  the Institute for Demography and Social Studies’ Director Ella Libanova about how Ukrainian attitudes have changed since the Euromaidan revolution.
