Viktor Yushchenko Election Pamphlet

While sorting through my papers I came upon a folder full of documents from our days in Ukraine. It had translated copies of my passport into Ukrainian, old copies of my debit cards, and other assorted papers I wanted to keep in good condition. Amongst those papers was a pamphlet for Viktor Yushchenko's presidential run in 2004. Laura was gifted this during our time in Kharkiv and as I collect political pins and such and this was one favorite things from Ukraine.

Yushchenko would be elected president and lead the so-called the Orange Revolution. He was nearly assassinated by poisoning during the lead up to the election.
