Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The party declared on its eighth congress on December 5, 2009: "We were on the Maidan in 2004. Together with the majority of young people we defended the principles of freedom, new views of the reform of the state, but instead we received crisis after crisis, anarchy and total chaos. [We have seen] chaos in all its forms, in all branches of power, and that's why we should acknowledge our historical mistakes and join with a person who is ready and is able to break a chain that is ruinous for Ukraine."[2]
