Ukraine parliament strips Yanukovich of his luxury estate

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's parliament on Sunday stripped President Viktor Yanukovich of his luxury country estate 25 km (16 miles) outside Kiev.

It voted overwhelmingly for the 14O-hectare estate, known as Mezhyhirye, on which Yanukovich kept luxury homes, a private zoo and a helipad, to be returned to the state within 10 days.
