 Yanukovych's Watch Collection: $260,000. PHOTOS

According to Yanukovych's declaration for 2011, he recieved a salary of 73,000 US dollars.

Photographer Vlad Sodel writes on his Facebook page: "Even if you do not look for his previous declarations and consider that in 2.5 years of Presidency he recieved 180,000 dollars it means that he added another 80,000 of his salary as a Prime Minister just to buy the watch collection. But being a live peson Yanukovych needs to eat something, wear something, Mezhygorye residence upkeep probably takes a lot of money, too. Where did he get it then if he spent it all on watches? And he can tell you: "It is simple. I published a book in Austria - 2 million dollars of royalties just like that. And that's the story..."

The watches below are the ones seen from 2006 to 2012.
