Nov. 21 marks two years of the beginning of the Maidan revolution in Kyiv, Mustafa Nayem, an investigative journalist and Rada lawmaker, writes on his site in Novoye vremya Nov. 21.

In the past 2 years, the regime failed to implement the promised changes in Ukraine, he says.

There were no breakthroughs, no leaders taking reformist decisions. Back in 2014, Ukrainians expected things would be different now.

Pres Poroshenko’s and Premier Yatseniuk’s major mistake was the wrong choice of partners. They relied mainly on tycoons, former Yanukovyc officials and insiders as well as thousands of officials controlled by them, Nayem says.

The pseudo removal of tycoons from power more and more looks like a clans’ war, with the government threatening tycoons with criminal investigations. However, not a single tycoon or former Yanukovych official has been imprisoned for their crimes!

Still, the big positive of the Maidan revolution is that the civil society in Ukraine is viable and growing in strength.

“Not a single reform or law can compare with this great achievement made by thousands of Ukrainians all over the country. Slowly but surely, new leaders are emerging,” Mustafa Nayem says.
