You're reading: Yatsenyuk shows his apartment, reveals no luxury
on social media

In a three-minute long YouTube video posted by Yatsenyuk’s office, the prime minister demonstrates the apartment that he has recently moved in with his family.

Yatsenyuk moved to the apartment from his house in a Novi Petrivtsi village, some 30 kilometers outside Kyiv to save time on traveling to work every day. The family purchased the apartment 10 years ago, the statement under the video reads. The video was watched over 190,000 times in just one day.

The living conditions of top officials have been of high interest in Ukraine ever since former President Viktor Yanukovych’s secretive billion-dollar mansion of Mezhyhirya. Opened for public viewing after Yanukovych fled on Feb. 22, the estate turned out to be a tragic mixture of bad taste and incredible wealth. While the urban legend of Yanukovych using a golden toilet turned out to be false, a golden loaf of bread was discovered, instead, in the mansion that spread out over 140 hectares and had almost every other imaginable luxury from yachts to a golf course and hunting range and numerous buildings.
