Americans are not the only people that appear to be sick of their politicians.

An angry crowd in Kiev threw Ukrainian MP Vitaly Zhuravsky into a dumpster Tuesday then held him down, beat him with a tire and dumped water on him, a new video has revealed.

Zhuravsky helped draft legislation limiting free speech while a member of the same political party as deposed President Viktor Yanukovych's political party, according to the Washington Post.

Cellphone video shows Zhuravsky being chased by dozens of people until they cornered and tossed him head over heels into the trash.

He is shown first being hit with his own leather briefcase before being held down by his face.

A dirty tire is then tossed on top of him before someone dumps a bottle of water on top for good measure.

Protesters shouted at him for having a hand in the country teetering on the brink of an all-out civil war.

"We live in a country where blood flows because of you," Talking Points Memo reported, citing Reuters.

The rattled MP kept his office despite Yanukovych fleeing the country.

He blamed the attack on his opponents.
