Yatseniuk says campaigning is hard because people remain distrustful of politicians after pinning their hopes on the 2004 Orange Revolution team of Viktor Yushchenko and Tymoshenko, who came to power and failed to deliver on many of their promises.
But the 38-year-old sees reason for hope.
“They haven’t started believing yet, the people,” Yatseniuk told the Kyiv Post in an interview at the Yalta European Strategy forum on Sept. 15. “But they have started thinking whether it’s possible or not. This is huge progress.”
