Matthew Rojansky discussed the ongoing violence in Ukraine on "PBS NewsHour" with William Taylor, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine. "Even cutting a geopolitical deal, imagine Russia, the United States, Europe sit down around a table and they come to a compromise, it doesn't necessarily solve the violence we're seeing on the streets today," Rojansky said.
A report on the results of a 2001-2002 study conducted by the Kennan Institute's Kyiv Project. The study highlighted the demographic changes that have affected post-Soviet Ukraine as a whole and Kyiv in particular since the country became a destination for migrants from countries outside of the CIS. The report provides extensive sociological data on Kyiv's nontraditional immigrant communities.
When an election scandal rocked Ukraine, thousands of Ukrainians took to the streets of Kyiv in peaceful protest, in what became known as The Orange Revolution. After an election rerun in December, opposition candidate Viktor Yushchenko was inaugurated the new president in January, and the country now looks ahead with hope.
