Program Title: Ukraine's Democratic Deficit
Description: On the occasion of the recent election of Volodymyr Zelensky to the Ukraine Presidency, the Global Research News Hour examines some of the undemocratic currents running through the Eastern European country. In the first half hour, Eva Bartlett returns for the second week in a row to elaborate on two recent articles describing the plight of a Ukrainian journalist who has been detained without trial for almost a year, based on articles he had published in 2014. In the second half hour, we hear Ukraine based journalist George Eliason comment on the election of Zelensky in the context of the rise of Ukrainian nationalism and the war in Donbass.
