Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc, despite its importance, has attracted little scholarly attention. This study discusses the Opposition Bloc’s genesis, internal struggles, and attempts to extend its influence. Although the Opposition Bloc originated from the remnants of the Party of Regions, some deputies from that party distanced themselves from the late leadership of Viktor Yanukovych, a development that led to the emergence of the Opposition Bloc. Additionally, the Opposition Bloc has endured internal party struggles, a development reflected in the party’s relationships with its financial patrons. This study also examines the Opposition Bloc’s failures to develop its influence in some areas, particularly focusing on the Dnipropetrovsk and Kharkiv regions.
