After the Ukrainian presidential elections, Victor Yankovych’s “blue” team came to power. The defragmented “orange” camp has now been pushed to the opposition. Although the potential of the Orange Revolution was not fully utilized, its legacy still remains The objection by the old member states along with the Western fear of Kremlin’s reaction, eliminated the use of the best “carrot”, which has so far worked well in accelerating the transformation of Central European countries, i.e., the offer of EU membership. The internal reasons for such objections are a lack of consensus between the main political factions in Ukraine, corruption, stagnation and suspension of necessary reforms which have resulted in the birth of the “Ukrainian fatigue” syndrome of the West. On the other hand, the parallel syndrome of an“EU fatigue” has increased Ukraine’s frustration resulted in awarding munitions to the supporters of the “pragmatic” approach that is advocated by the Party of Regions.
