Roundtable • A Decade After the Revolution of Dignity: Perspectives from V4 and Ukraine

February 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In February 2014, the world witnessed the Revolution of Dignity, which led to significant political changes in Ukraine. On the one hand, the defection of Viktor Yanukovych testified to the protesters’ success at Kyiv’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti. On the other hand, it became a pretext for Russia to illegally annex Crimea and launch military operations in Donbas that culminated in a full-scale invasion in February 2022. The events of February 2014 also affected the rest of East Europe, and maybe most directly the neighboring Visegrad 4 states (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia). The participants will address how the legacy of Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity resonates along the Vistula, Vltava, and Danube rivers. Follow the link to register.
