When President Viktor Yanukovych failed to sign an association agreement with the European Union on Nov. 21, 2013, Mustafa Nayyem sent out a Facebook post in protest that helped spark the first gathering on Kyiv's Maidan Square.
Hanna Hopko, a long-time Ukrainian activist took part in these protests and took center stage as she called for reforms in Ukraine's notoriously corrupt government.
On the one-year anniversary of the Maidan protests, Hromadske International co-hosts Ian Bateson and Nataliya Gumenyuk sat down with Nayyem and Hopko to hear their thoughts about what has- and hasn't- changed since the Maidan protests began in Ukraine.
Full disclosure: Nayyem has since left his job as a journalist and no longer has any editorial, or financial ties to Hromadske.
