Viktor Yanukovich’s Opulent House

Viktor Yanukovich’s Opulent House

Ukrainians streamed to see Viktor Yanukovich's luxury estate, rubbing their eyes in disbelief as they were confronted by the scale of the opulence he built around him and kept secret from the outside world. There were Australian and African ostriches, stretching their legs, hares darting around people's feet - clearly unused to large numbers. All this in a country where the average salary is less than $500 a month. The sprawling forested estate of graceful waterways and summer houses - half the size of Monaco but just one hour's drive from Kiev - stands as a symbol of the folly of Ukraine's fugitive president.
