Former Ukrainian President and Orange Revolution hero Viktor Yushchenko's Our Ukraine party has dissolved itself at a party congress in Kyiv.

Its foundation documents, seals, and flags will be handed over to the Orange Revolution Museum at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.

Yushchenko was invited to the congress but did not attend it.

Our Ukraine won barely 1 percent of the vote in parliamentary elections in October 2012, far short of the 5 percent threshold needed to enter parliament.
