Ukraine: The Rise of Yatsenyuk

Since the 2004 Orange Revolution, Kiev has been dominated by the failing President Viktor Yushchenko, the populist Yulia Tymoshenko and Viktor Yanukovych, leader of the ethnic-Russian backed Party of Regions. Now a serious fourth man has entered the race for the presidency, and with elections due to be held in January 2010, the young, highly qualified and economics-minded Arseniy Yatsenyuk is giving the rest a run for their money.

There is a sour mood of failed revolution amid economic turmoil in Ukraine.

Markian Bilynskyj, head of the prominent US-Ukraine Foundation think tank, cuts ‘orange revolutionaries’ Tymoshenko and Yushchenko little slack.
