On November 2013, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich refused to sign the European Union Assocation Agreement, after years of negotiation. As a result, chaos and protests flared up on the capital city Kiev’s main square, which the locals call Maidan. Since the Orange Revolution of 2004, the Maidan has symbolized freedom. A roundtable discussion, featuring University of Illinois experts on Ukraine, will discuss the country’s current events, the implications of the ongoing political protests, and the enduring symbol of the Maidan.
