The Drunks and Vagrants who call themselves “Euromaidan” arrested after big confrontation in Kiev. (VICE)

VICE overstates this. Almost nobody in Ukraine still considers the people on maidan legitimate. They’re thugs, drunks and vagrants. This view was actually seconded by my taxi driver a couple days ago when this story came over the radio. The cab driver added that he’d been on maidan himself when it was necessary.
