Throughout the winter of 2013 and 2014, the world watched as the people of Ukraine took to the streets to demand an end to government corruption, the systemic abuse of power and human rights violations. Very simply, they wanted a chance to shape their own democratic future.

Three years later, what reforms has the government implemented? How has Russian aggression impacted the country? And what does the future look like for Ukraine?

In episode seven of “Global,” our hosts explore these questions and the changes the country has seen since the Revolution of Dignity. This episode features conversations with Senator John McCain, Ukrainian Member of Parliament Hanna Hopko, and IRI's Director of Eurasia Stephen Nix.
