Ukraine: Lords of the Ring, Fighting for Reform / ABC International. New York, N.Y. : Films Media Group, [2013], c2012. 1 streaming video file (27 min.) Boxing champions Vitali and Vladimir Klitschko used to let their fists and footwork do the talking-but now the brothers are ready to talk about the plight of their beloved homeland, Ukraine, and their plans to wrest it back from nefarious political forces. This program offers a ringside seat to their efforts-not just to Vladimir’s bone-crushing heavyweight bout in Switzerland but also to Vitali’s campaign for a seat in the Ukrainian parliament. Both fighters are smart, charismatic, university educated, and driven to change their nation’s direction. But it won’t be easy. Ukraine is at the top of Transparency International’s list of corrupt European governments, and its political landscape is littered with contenders who’ve been bruised, battered, and beaten-figuratively, by Machiavellian power brokers, and literally, by government goons. On second thought, the Klitschko brothers may have found their true calling.
