According to him, the apartment full of bags with valuables and works of art is located in the capital's Darnytsia district. The police stumbled across it during the investigative activities. Having obtained all permits, the investigators entered the apartment in the presence of a lawyer.
"Dozens of icons and religious books dating from the 19th century, the originals (according to the conclusions of experts) of paintings by Ilya Repin, Vasily Tropinin and Nikas Safronov, silverware, commemorative coins, award weapons with permits issued in the name of the fugitive premier and even a Cossack saber have been discovered," Troian wrote.
Moreover, the police found awards and greetings from the Russian leadership, which Azarov received even during the tragic events of the Revolution of Dignity.
By preliminary estimates, the discovery is worth several million U.S. dollars.
On Dec. 7, three land plots and a housing facility in Kyiv belonging to Mykola Azarov were seized following a court ruling.
