Ukraine [electronic resource]: Lords of the Ring, Fighting for Reform

Boxing champions Vitali and Vladimir Klitschko used to let their fists and footwork do the talking-but now the brothers are ready to talk about the plight of their beloved homeland, Ukraine, and their plans to wrest it back from nefarious political forces. This program offers a ringside seat to their efforts-not just to Vladimir's bone-crushing heavyweight bout in Switzerland but also to Vitali's campaign for a seat in the Ukrainian parliament. Both fighters are smart, charismatic, university educated, and driven to change their nation's direction. But it won't be easy. Ukraine is at the top of Transparency International's list of corrupt European governments, and its political landscape is littered with contenders who've been bruised, battered, and beaten-figuratively, by Machiavell [...]

Democratic Revolutionary Handbook

Loading...
The recent democratic revolutions in Serbia in 2000, Georgia in 2003, and the Ukraine in 2004 all seemed to follow a quick and easy pattern: the exposure of rigged elections, followed by massive street protests, and a regime that collapsed without a fight. But the film reveals the lengthy and meticulous preparations behind these seemingly spontaneous demonstrations, showing how modern marketing techniques have combined with revolutionary politics to transform the region's governments. Features interviews with founding members of the opposition political parties - OTPOR in Serbia, KMARA in Georgia and PORA in the Ukraine. The democratic revolutionary game plan doesn't always succeed as in the case of the failed 2005 attempt in Azerbaijan.
