The grounds of the former minister’s estate contain several houses, a tennis court, and a helicopter pad.

Journalists were allowed to visit the grounds of former Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaly Zakharchenko’s house.

The estate is located about 27 kilometers from Kyiv in the village of Pidhirtsi, reports LB.ua’s correspondent. It covers a large area; the length of the fence along the road alone is about 300 meters.

Besides the main house, the property has a garage, quarters for security guards, and a tennis court.

Moreover, not far from the estate are a helicopter pad and helicopter hangar.

The estate’s grounds are well kept. There are a lot of trees near the houses; there is even a small artificial lake.

Journalists failed to get inside the house.

According LB.ua, attackers attempted to make an assault upon the house on the night of 24 February. The assailants remain unidentified. However, the attack failed – the fighters could only get as far as the security guards’ quarters.

It was assumed that the house would fall under the protection of the security forces, which would conduct an inventory of the property, but this never happened. Currently the house is closed, but the neighborhood is still freely accessible. The estate’s security guards fear that the house might be assaulted again tonight (25 February).
