Why Ukraine’s Viktor Yanukovych Was Cast Adrift

| No Comments

The New York Times reported on January 3, 2015, that an investigation it conducted “into the final hours” of former Ukrainian President Viktor F.Yanukovych’s rule — based on interviews with prominent players, including former commanders of the Berkut riot police and other security units, telephone records and other documents — shows that the president was not so much overthrown as cast adrift by his own allies, and that Western officials were just as surprised by the meltdown as anyone else.”

It’s a fascinating story I highly recommend. For more, see “Ukraine Leader Was Defeated Even Before He Was Ousted.”
