Майдан как улей (зарисовки украинского политического протеста).

PolitBook. 2015. № 2. С. 167-179.
Скиперских А. В.

In this article the author focuses on the political crisis in modern Ukraine. Under these circumstances, the stock of public confidence in official institutions of power is almost exhausted, thereby legitimating new institutions representing informal structures. One such institution is the Maidan - parallel structure, duplicating the functions of state structures. The author tries to rethink Maidan through a unique Ukrainian political culture and quite bright and attractive political image. Legitimation of Maidan and delegitimation of formal structures from the point of view of the author may be due to the low tolerance of society to the government itself , which is a specific feature of the Ukrainian political culture.
