Poroshenko, Elites Getting Filthy Rich Off the Backs of Ukrainians (Video)

Two years later, a destroyed economy, a ruined country, sovereignty sold to Brussels, thousands of innocent lives lost....all in order to live worse off than under Yanukovych

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.
