According to the document, in 2011, the Novyy Mir (New World) Printing House paid UAH 16.4 million in royalties to Yanukovych for the transfer of the property rights for the books he wrote in 2005-2010 to the publishing house. From the amount of royalties, Yanukovych paid UAH 2.8 million to the budget as personal income tax.
