Yulia Tymoshenko was not the architect of the Orange Revolution. It was the family man, Viktor Yuschenko, who took office after a contested victory by Viktor Yanukovich. Tymoshenko was his first lieutenant and important ally. When Yuschenko was poisoned with Dioxin with the same DNA as that used to kill a former Russian spy in Britain, she broke with Yuschenko and took on Yanukovich in the next election. She lost and then Yanukovich put her in prison and accused her with trumped up charges of stealing millions in Russian gas money. There is no doubt of her charisma. However because of her actions in the political arena, I would call her an opportunist. Because of Sevastapol in the Crimea where the Russian fleet in ported, the Russians will have to act.

Perhaps the biggest "armed mutiny" of all time whose legitimacy had "big doubts" was the Bolshevik revolution.
