You're reading: Volunteer battalion leaders, EuroMaidan Revolution heroes declare their assets
on social media

Back in 2014, before the last parliamentary elections took place in Ukraine, the country’s political parties packed their election lists with popular Ukrainian heroes who rose to prominence during the EuroMaidan Revolution and the subsequent war with Russia.

Two years later, these same heroes have declared their assets in online declarations, and the contrast between them and Ukraine’s established political figures is stark.

According to their e-declarations, Ukraine’s long-time political elite is astonishingly wealthy, owning masses of real estate, luxury watches, cars, collections of valuable paintings and even a church. In contrast, most EuroMaidan Revolutionaries live a modest lifestyle, according to the public database, although some of the military heroes and their family members possess several land plots, apartments, and large quantities of cash.
