But being a live peson Yanukovych needs to eatsomething, wear something, Mezhygorye residence upkeep probablytakes a lot of money, too. Where did he get it then if he spent itall on watches? And he can tell you: "It is simple. I published abook in Austria - 2 million dollars of royalties just like that.And that's the story..."
