“The author reveals the peculiarities of the internal political development of Ukraine. The stages of establishment of the political elite of Ukraine are shown. The factors that determine its approaches to the implementation of domestic and foreign policy of the country are studied… It becomes obvious that the political development of Ukraine can still bring a lot of surprises.”
Nikolay P. Medvedev, Doctor of Political Science, Professor of Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, Moscow, Russia

“The book reflects the acute confrontation that has been going on in Ukraine for almost thirty years between regional elites. The author has shown that their different ideas about the future development of the country are determined by the history of formation of the Ukrainian state. This factor is the key reason for political clashes. This book is the first one that thoroughly and objectively shows the struggle for power in Ukraine…”  Yuliy A. Nisnevich, Doctor of Political Science, Professor of the National Research University – Higher School of Economics (HSE), Moscow, Russia
