Documentary "Lustration"


Yehor is in charge of lustration in Ukraine. This is the way the journalists called him upon the Euromaidan victory. The new government was promising to create a lustration committee, backed by the Council of Ministers, and appoint Yehor Sobolyev as its chief.

But that was about it: there were no appointments, no committee, and no lustration laws. Despite the fact that lustration was Maidan’s main demand. Yet, Yehor is not the one to surrender. He’s fighting and he’s winning.

This is a film about an inner strength of a person who moved all the way from a human rights advocate to Euromaidan superintendent, from a journalist to a member of Parliament, from the corrupt government fighter to a statesman.
