His appointment followed the resignation of reform-minded ministers, a government crisis that lasted several weeks, and months of political stalemate. It was over two years ago that demonstrators on Kiev’s Maidan called passionately in their “Revolution of Dignity” for reform and for their country to set a pro-European course. Can the new government put Ukraine back on that path?
