Ukraine’s former president, and current fugitive, Viktor Yanukovych sat down with BBC Newsnight to do his first interview with western media on Monday, June 22 2015. It’s not surprise that Yanukovych denies any wrong doing in the fleecing of Ukraine, blames the war in eastern Ukraine and annexation of Crimea on the Maidan revolution and feels that he is still the true President of Ukraine. However, the most entertaining portion of the video comes when he is asked about his opulent residence, the zoo on it’s grounds and the ostriches that he ‘supports’.
