"The anger against Mr. Yanukovich has been building for three years, but it took the decision to reject the association agreement with the EU to provide the spark for the demonstrations," said Alexander J. Motyl, professor of political science at Rutgers University and a specialist in Ukraine and Russia.
He described the protests that continue to rage in Ukraine as "a popular uprising against a dictatorial regime that has been pilfering state finances, is immensely corrupt, and has been extremely indifferent to any notions of popular dignity."
