You're reading: No looting or anarchy in this EuroMaidan revolution

descended into chaos or civil war.

To the contrary, the radical aggressors of
EuroMaidan respect public order for the most part and calibrate their actions to keep the focus on their mission: ousting President Viktor
Yanukovych’s regime.

That means that while the activists are happy to seize
a police bus on Hrushevskoho Street and set it on fire, they leave the fancy
boutique storefronts alone on the same street because they have no quibble with the shopkeepers. (One, however, has to overlook the grafitti spraypainted on the sides of many buildings.)
