On November 21, 2004 the people of Ukraine were supposed to elect a new president. They had the choice of two candidates: the appointed heir Viktor Yanukovych, the prime minister in the government of the very unpopular outgoing president, and Viktor Yushchenko, a popular opposition leader.The outgoing president Leonid Kuchma had an important personal stake in this election. For years the opposition had blamed him for various crimes – from corruption to involvement in the murder of an opposition journalist. A hand-picked ‘heir’ was his best chance to secure post-presidential immunity.The day after the election, the state controlled media declared Viktor Yanukovych the winner.The outraged people of Kiev took to the streets, staging the biggest mass protest in post-Soviet history.So began the Orange Revolution.
