Poroshenko gave Yanukovych Aivazovsky painting for $ 1.8 million

In 2012, the chocolate magnate spoiled Ukrainian President expensive presents.

It turned out that before the events euromaidan Poroshenko not only courted the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, but also tried to buy a high public office, presenting the head of state masterpieces of world art. At least in certain of the former deputy head of the presidential administration of Ukraine Andriy Portnov.

On his page on “Facebook” of ex-officer recalled a case in 2012 Poroshenko gave Yanukovych a birthday picture of the world-famous marine painter Ivan Aivazovsky “Constantinople in the early days.”

Price canvases, created in 1851, one of the world’s oldest auction house Sotheby’s in 2007 amounted to $ 1.8 million. But he Poroshenko, according to Portnov, bought it from an intermediary in Ukraine.
