Summary/Abstract: Following the ousting of the Viktor Yanukovych regime many had hoped now was the time to focus on reforms and European integration. Those hopes, however, quickly faded to the background as Ukrainians were forced to fight for their very existence. It soon became clear that, as was during the Maidan, help from politicians was not going to suffice. Instead, the people had to rely only on themselves. As a result, Ukrainian society made another colossal step in its evolution.
