Foreign Notes reports [1] that a Ukrainian MP Rinat Akhmetov [2] has bought a penthouse in London for £136 million ($222 million), and intends to donate $1 million for the construction of the new containment structure [3] at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant; Akhmetov's fellow Party of Regions [4] MP Mykola Lisin died in Kyiv on April 17 “in a high speed crash whilst driving his $165k+ Lamborghini Gallardo” at 150-200 km/hour.” Ukrainiana writes [5] about a Ukrainian police officer who killed a teen cyclist – and got a promotion.
