The authors doubt a wide-spread opinion that a regime is just a number of formal power institutions. In their opinion in the transition period institutions in themselves are not only and not that much a framework for cooperation and the system of generally accepted legitimate rules but also the subject of agreements, trade and struggle. The interaction between the ruling class and the society as well as inside the ruling class is based on informal institutions. Using modern Ukraine as an example the authors address the problem of the power legitimacy and government under regimes where the “grey zone” has in a certain sense received its legal regulations.
