The Consequences of Ukraine’s Regime Change
The tragedies are adding up. Some call it justice, some government intimidation, but a string of apparent suicides by members of the pre-revolution ruling party is causing concern in Ukraine. Over a few weeks in February and March, four former senior officials were found dead. No evidence suggests foul play, but some argue that overzealous prosecutors, their eyes on political gain, are driving men to the brink. The government, however, shows no sign of stopping — officials say the suicides are a clear indicator of guilty consciences.
