Ukraine leader's secret residence opened to public

Published: 02.23.14, 00:50 / Israel News

The opulent residence of President Viktor Yanukovych has always been a closely guarded secret – and a symbol of the alleged corruption at Ukraine's highest levels. On Saturday, after he fled the capital and its gates were thrown open, thousands streamed into the compound to get a first-hand look.

 

Inside the walled compound known as Mezhyhirya, posh mansions stood amid manicured lawns. There were parks dotted with statues, ponds with fountains and wild ducks, a tennis court, a golf course and a colonnaded pavilion. (AP)
