Revolution of Looting

screenshot of the DM publication of Feb. 26, 2016That's how the Daily Mail describes the ill fate of the mansion of Viktor Pshonka, the Yanukovich's time General Prosecutor of Ukraine:
Revolutionaries wasted no time, and broke into his mansion for the first time immediately after he fled in 2014.
Inside, they discovered an orgy of kitsch - velvet curtains with gilded stripes, chaise-longues in a faux aquarium, marble busts, four-poster beds and what appeared to be a Faberge egg.
What followed was a free for all, with some individuals walking out with whatever they could carry.
Activists then pleaded with new President Petro Poroshenko to seize Pshonka's opulent home and recover its valuable assets for the impoverished state.
Instead, the country's current pro-EU government did nothing to stop the thieves.
Last October plunderers were able to live for a month and half in Pshonka's luxury home while they tore apart its interior.

There's a whole set of such pairs of images, taken from the same spots with a two years interval between.

The DM continuously call the Maidaners 'revolutionaries', following the officially adopted by the West version of 'Revolution of Dignity'.
However, what happened in Ukraine two years ago in no case was a revolution. A revolution leads to a change of social formation: so, the Great French Revolution washed away monarchy (with a true flood of blood, I have to add); two consecutive revolutions in Russia did same things in 1917.

However, the only result of Maidan was a change of political elite; the Yanukovich-supported oligarchy (quite mistakenly considered pro-Russian) was changed with that of Poroshenko, an oligarch himself. So it was just a coup d'état, whatever the mainstream media say.

And now we come to the second part of the definition, 'dignity'. The images in the DM show the exact amount on dignity in that Ukrainian pseudo-revolution.

Just because those 'revolutionaries' the DM is speaking of, calling them also 'all', 'individuals' and 'activists', are just the very same people later called 'thieves', 'looters' and 'plunderers'.

Do you see any unmasked face in the pictures published by the DM?

True revolutionaries do not mask their faces.
