PHOTOS: Presidential Residence Turned Into 'Museum Of Corruption'

The lavish country estate of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has been thrown open to the public as parliament voted to remove him from power. But he is not the only powerful Ukrainian enjoying a ridiculously luxurious residence.
On Sunday, parliament of Uktaine voted to return ownership of the Mezhyhirya property to the state.
The 140-acre estate has become a public monument to greed and corruption. The property boasts a five-storey mansion, a luxury car collection, a greenhouse full of banana plants and a personal zoo including ostriches and peacocks.

Hundreds of people go to see how the ousted president lived. The visitors, however, seem to be showing good discipline not destroying the residence.
Mr Yanukovych has left the capital Kiev and his whereabouts are unknown. The interim interior minister Arsen Avakov has announced that a criminal case had been opened against Mr Yanukovych and other officials over "mass murder of peaceful citizens".
According to the health ministry, says 88 people, including protesters and policemen, have been killed in last week's clashes.

Thousands of Ukrainians flocked to see the opulent country estate of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych after he unexpectedly fled the capital, Kiev.
