Stupid protestors. Now with Yanukovich gone, the wealth will never trickle down.

Nothing says opulence like having a bathtub for your rocks.

Chicken Kiev would be my nickname too if I was a dictator on the run for my life.

Mostly because when they found me I'd be wrapped in breasts and stuffed with sauce!

Did he crucify every falcon on the road to Rome to send a message?

All photos of his tacky, nouveau-riche home aside, I nominate "Chicken Kiev" as this man's forever-nickname.

Suits the bastard perfectly.

How backwards of a country is the Ukraine?  Not even the presidential palace has indoor plumbing!

I think he was trying to send a message. Birds eat the rotting human flesh of the crucified, but if there is no one around to crucify then they are only left to eat each other.

Or he was making a reference to Bob Marley's Three Little Birds.

LewDux: flexflint: Grahor: There is absolutely no doubt that Yanukovich's government is incredibly corrupt, but I call the image with light sources, at least, a fake. The reason: there is a grammatical error in the header - "contact" instead of "contract". :)

Okay, that doesn't make it a fake, but it raises questions. Like, what the hell, $42 millions and you couldn't find someone to proofread the freakin thing?

Also, the description for items is incredibly basic, like "the lamp for main room", etc. Shouldn't there be at least the name of manufacturer?

So that's the route you're going now? It's all fake, a conspiracy plot organized by the people of Ukraine? The whole place is a cardboard filmstage filled with Western backed actors?

If anything, I'm surprised about the detail in the listings; why would he list it all if he didn't need healthy accountancy? Almost none of the wealth was rightfully his anyway, and if he wanted some cash all he did was ask someone or stamp another document. My guess is he wanted to be able to brag, simple as that.

He was jailed as a teenager for pickpocketing, he didn't want to take chances any more "Vsio v zakone"

Hasn't got any tattoos, though:

ransack.: BMulligan: Emposter: Why does Ukraine still have statues of Lenin after all this time?

I don't know - why does Seattle?

Wikipedia has an article detailing the history of the statue you pictured. So can you answer his question or are you just here to be a smartass and not contribute to the conversation in any meaningful way? Because I'm getting awful sick and fed up with constantly wading through the shiat of your ilk.

Nice bicycle you've got. Is it a Huffy? I bet it's a Huffy.

wildbill0712: I really don't get the 'OMG, he had a big bathtub and helicopter pad' outrage. How is this that much different than the hundreds of politicians in the US that miraculously become multi-millionaires while in office?

And his own golf course. You would think he would be more careful with the people's money and just fly to Hawaii when he wants to play a round.

ransack.: dfacto: As an American living in eastern Europe this underscores something important that I noticed a long time ago, and which is a really sad indictment of US culture:

These people get by with shiat wages, just had their government try to strongarm them into line, but they fought and bled for their freedom and won.  Then they take over the Big Bad's property and go through it like a museum.  What would have happened if this was the USA?  In most cities my bet is that people earning double would rampage, loot and burn the house within the day, while a crowd stands outside and chants U-S-A, U-S-A!

Despite the bad reputation the Slavic countries have due to being behind the Iron Curtain for so long, most of the people in them are still nice and cultured.  For the wages they earn and the places they live they far exceed what you would expect from a US citizen.  In my city you have areas which look like pure ghettos, with rundown soviet apartment blocks everywhere.  The occupants earn about 200 euro per month on average, and crime is still almost nonexistant and you can park your car and walk around where you need to go.  Whenever I go to those places I can't help but think that in the states that kind of place would be an urban warzone.  We really need to fix our shiat in the US, because some supposedly pinko commie slavs are showing us up every day.

Mind if I ask why you moved to an eastern European impoverished ghetto?

he was actually talking about living in gary indiana for 2 weeks.

Those are goshawks... The brown ones are juveniles and the gray blue ones are adults. The only reason you'd kill and display dead goshawks like that would be if you were a landskeeper who kept game birds for hunting and didn't like the raptorial competition. They display them like that in order to 'scare off' other hawks (hint: it doesn't work). Poor goshawks... that breaks my heart. :(
