How Corrupt Ukrainian Presidents Do Money

According to The New Republic, fabulously:

Over the weekend, Kiev saw an exhibit of all the sumptuous ridiculousness deposed Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych had stashed in his villa at Mezhyhirya, just outside of Kiev. It’s stunning that the president of a country constantly teetering on the brink of economic collapse had the funds to purchase so many posh, unnecessary things, including countless images of, well, himself.

The pictures must be seen to be believed.

If you were a despot and could use funds from your struggling former Soviet Union state to commission whatever portraits and paintings you wanted, would you choose to make your dong look so negligible? #RealTalk
