RTÉ talked to Carnegie Moscow Center’s Lilia Shevtsova about the political landscape in Ukraine.

According to Shevtsova, only the first stage of revolution is over. Now everybody, including the old opposition—the opposition from the previous 2004 Orange Revolution—are fighting for power, and they’re forgetting about people on the street, the Maidan. There is a really serious challenge for Ukraine—how the people will be involved in controlling the new power, Shevtsova added.
