Abstract [en]

Yuliya Yurchuk and Alla Marchenko present an analysis of intellectuals’ narratives on betrayal in the most transformative period of recent Ukrainian history—the Orange Revolution and the Euromaidan protests. While it was observed that after both these revolutions the people’s attitudes oscillated between two polarities of great expectations and great disillusionments, the authors analyze the narratives of betrayal through the concept of disenchantment. The analysis shows that disenchantment can be an empowering device, which serves as a push for the search for internal powers and capabilities. At the same time, the authors also observed that some groups of Ukrainian people were dismissed by intellectuals as betrayers or not sufficiently capable of acting in accordance with intellectual ideals.
