chestnut revolution
 n.— «Chairman of the Russian State Duma international affairs committee Mikhail Margelov has expressed doubt that Ukraine would see a “chestnut revolution’ in case opposition candidate Viktor Yushchenko loses the presidential elections. This definition was suggested by some commentators, referring to the “velvet revolution’ in Czechoslovakia in the late 1980s and the “rose revolution’ in Georgia in 2003, in which the ruling regimes were overthrown in a bloodless way.» —“Russian senator doubts Ukraine may see ‘chestnut revolution’” Interfax (Russia) Oct. 29, 2004.
