Some people, at least in Kyiv are feeling nostalgic about the presidency of Viktor Yanukovych, ousted by the events on Maidan.
Yet, many people see that the economy (seemingly) was developing, there were investments in the country, and the national currency, the hrivnya was 4 times stronger.
Oh yeah, things were corrupt, but corruption was at least centralized in one guys hand, Yanukovych.
Hlib Vyshlinsky, who explains a lot about today's economic issues, here and here, clarifies this misconception. At least from a macroeconomic point of view.
