Podcast: Ukraine's Third Revolution

The Ukrainian street flexes its muscles
The Ukrainian street flexes its muscles

A tent city has appeared in Kyiv for the first time since the Euromaidan.

Protesters are demanding that President Petro Poroshenko enact anti-corruption reforms or step down.

Pro-Western politicians are squabbling. Judicial reform is stalled. Pessimism and tensions are rising.

Welcome to the growing pains of something I call Ukraine's Third Revolution.

This week's Power Vertical Podcast takes a look at Ukraine's efforts to move from oligarchic pluralism to real pluralism.

Joining me are co-host Mark Galeotti, a senior research fellow at the Institute of International Relations in Prague and author of the blog In Moscow's Shadows, and RFE/RL Kyiv correspondent Christopher Miller.

Also on the podcast, Mark, Chris, and I talk about the changing tactics in both Kyiv and Moscow toward the war in the Donbas.
