Ukraine's Orange Revolution, NGOs and the Role of the West*

  title={Ukraine's Orange Revolution, NGOs and the Role of the West*},
  author={Andrew Wilson},
This article examines the role of Western support for domestic non-governmental organisations during the 2004 Ukrainian election and the Orange Revolution. It critically assesses the thesis that Western support and the groups who received Western money were overly biased towards a particular candidate, namely Viktor Yushchenko.
