Description2004-05 colour revolution in the Ukraine

The Orange Revolution was a series of protests and political events that took place in Ukraine from late November 2004 to January 2005

According to the Associated Press, in the years 2002-2004 alone the Bush Administration spent more than $65 million to seed the Orange Revolution and build support for opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko. The $65 million plus went to pro-Yushchenko think tanks, civic organizations, political training, and work with strategically placed professionals, such as journalists and judges. It paid for some questionable exit polls and election monitors, many of them Ukrainian expatriates who were far from impartial. The Americans funded all this through a series of "cutouts" - primarily Freedom House and the National Endowment for Democracy.[1]
