In a video by PBS NewsHour, three Ukrainian alumni of the CDDRL's Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program provide comments on the struggle for political change and stability in their country two years after the Maidan protests drove President Yanukovych out of Ukraine. Alumni members Sergii Leshchenko, Mustafa Nayyem, and Svitlana Zalishchuk currently serve as Members of Parliament in Ukraine. Nayyem: "It was very easy to be heroes on the Maidan. It is much more difficult to be heroes in the Parliament."
