The October 2012 parliamentary elections have shown that the Ukrainian society is gearing up for change. The Party of Regions’ victory was narrower than expected and marred by post-election turmoil in a dozen of districts across Ukraine. Ukrainian voters demonstrated some level of resilience against an illiberal political regime, but a real alternative to the current political class has yet to emerge. In this process, the EU should remain critical towards the government, but at the same time open towards Ukrainians.
