Social activists posted a video captured during a visit by Automaidan to the estate of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Vitaly Yarema.

The video from a radio-controlled drone, as the authors of the video claim, shows the house and a 1 hectare division of land with its own lake, belonging to Yarema.

“Well, how do you like the piece of land with houses on it of the honest policeman-prosecutor, Vitaly Yarema in the luxury cottage area of Zoloche with its own lake on the property? If you look at a satellite map of the area, then this little “scrap piece” is almost 10,000 square meters. The price for a hundred square meters here is $15,000 UAH. You can calculate yourself how much he paid for the land [Editor: approx. $11,578,544 USD]. And that’s just for the land …

Maybe that’s why Mr. Yarema says the lustration law is “unconstitutional?”
–wrote activist Vitaly Umanets, on his Facebook page.

From Voices of Ukraine:
Mr. Umanets wrote in a slightly earlier post: “Our demands to him [Yarema] are simple: to punish the police employees and judges who were involved in the repression against activists during Maidan and not to close their cases, as Mr. Yarema has done.

But rather than comment on the law on lustration as ‘unconstitutional,’ it would be better if the Prosecutor took care of his primary responsibilities! More than 7 (!) months have passed since the shooting down of people in broad daylight in the heart of the Ukrainian capital! No one has been PUNISHED for this crime! No one! But activists who ‘lustrated’ Shufrych in Odessa within a week have all been found and brought in for questioning! Dear ones, it’s for this kind of a country that we fought on Maidan?”

    Do we know what the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Vitaly Yarema was doing before he was appointed Prosecutor? Do we know whether his family had wealth before this event. Do we know where this wealth was acquired and from whom? Maybe some “lustration” needed, at least some comprehensive research!!

      Thanks Clive, all very good questions. As the debates on lustration proceed, please remember we are translators and not the original journalists writing these stories. Yarema’s history is easily accessed on wikipedia and you will see he did not make a large enough salary in his previous positions in order to afford such a property, so one should take into account under whom he served during most of that time as well.

    I liked the video. But you got your numbers wrong. If 100m2 is $15,000 USD and not UAH, then 1000m2 is $150,000 USD. “If you look at a satellite map of the area, then this little “scrap piece” is almost 1,0000 square meters. The price for a hundred square meters here is $15,000 UAH. You can calculate yourself how much he paid for the land [Editor: approx. $11,578,544 USD]. And that’s just for the land …”

    I see, you meant 10,000m2, then it would be $1,500,000 USD
