Just the other day, Ukrainian blogger Yurasumy analyzing the catastrophic state of the post-Maidan Ukraine wrote:

“Has the population begun to live better? Maybe some people have but this absolute minority of the Ukrainian population are the ones who made a business out of the blood of their citizens. Most people are worse off, and most have fallen into poverty.”

This video shows some facts about these ‘select people’:

  • Poroshenko’s Presidential administration spends more money on a fleet of official cars than Yanukovich ever did.

  • The salaries of Duma deputies are ballooning in real terms.

  • A ‘New Amsterdam’ luxury residential and recreational real estate project is being developed on a former industrial site, where Poroshenko just happens to be a major property owner.

The more things change, the more they remain the same, or worse.
