The biggest change seen in Ukraine over the year following the Orange Revolution is the move from illusions to disillusionment. The overwhelming majority of promises made to the people on Maidan by political leaders have not been kept. Obviously in one year it would be impossible to achieve all that was planned. However, unfortunately, the further into the past the Revolution recedes, the further we move from the keeping of these promises. There have even been negative developments in comparison with the first months after the Revolution. I would not say that the country is slipping back into Kuchmism, and most likely there will be no repeat of what it was like then. The situation is more reminiscent of a return to the days of the Presidency under Kravchuk in 1994.
