08:44 25 June Kyiv, Ukraine

Mezhyhirya is synonymous with the irrepressible greed of the fugitive Yanukovych. For a long time the whole country looked at this ownerless "estate" and fed the unfortunate ostriches. And now, the fate of Mezhyhirya is finally determined!

On the territory of the government residence Mezhyhirya, a park-monument of landscape gardening art of national importance will be created. The corresponding decision was made by the Cabinet of Ministers, the press service of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources reports on Friday, June 24.

"Ministry of Environmental Protection... begins the official process of turning the government residence Mezhyhirya into a state park-monument... In the near future, a favorite place of Ukrainian and foreign tourists in the Kyiv region will become a conservation area, for example, like Feofaniya, Mariinsky Park or Goloseevsky Forest," the report says.

In order for the government residence Mezhyhirya to officially acquire the status of a park-monument of national importance, the Ministry of Environmental Protection must complete all legal procedures and prepare a corresponding draft presidential decree.

Recall that in early March, the residence of the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, Mezhyhirya, came under a bomb attack.

At the end of last year, law enforcement officers completed an investigation on the suspicion of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and his son Alexander in taking possession of the Mezhyhirya residence by abusing their official position.
