27Yulia Tymoshenko, a co-leader with Viktor Yushchenko of the Orange Revolution and Prime Minister of Ukraine from January to September 2005 and again from December 2007 to March 2010, is a key figure in Ukrainian politics. As part of her second bid for prime minister in 2007, Tymoshenko made a documentary titled Mother and Step-Mother which was widely viewed inside Ukraine. In it Tymoshenko argues that Ukraine has been a “bad mother” to its people who have had to seek nurturing and sustenance in the arms of “step-mother” Italy. Walking through the streets of Naples, Italy, Tymoshenko speaks with Ukrainian domestic workers about their lives and informs viewers that 5–7 million Ukrainians are forced to search for work abroad and 3–4 million Ukrainians are working in Italy. 1
