ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Local Ukrainian media reported on several more properties owned by ousted president Viktor Yanukovich on Monday (February 24) including a massive hunting lodge on display in Sukholesye. There is a frenzy and fascination in the Ukrainian media about where the country's money has gone, as the economy is in dire straits. Reporters have flocked to Yanukovich's properties, looking for any information on how the ousted president may have wasted state money. This comes just two days after the private residence of the president, whose whereabouts are still unknown, was opened to visitors near Kiev. As the instability continues in Ukraine, the EU is discussing emergency financial aid for Ukraine to raise short-term funding, as the country needs $35 billion to survive 2014 and 2015.
