Unexpected developments in Ukraine are occurring at a very fast pace. On Saturday February 22nd, the dismissal of President Viktor Yanukovych and the release of Yulia Tymoshenko clearly marked a turning point in the crisis, surprising many observers. No less important were the seizure of Crimea by Russian troops a week later and the protests in eastern and southern Ukraine. For months we have been witnessing a political drama which has already created its own myths and political symbols.
