Favorite activity – read a book, generally loves to read and believes reading is a hobby, but Irina is not enough time.


Irina Gerashchenko, has issued its three-storey country house for his mother, who moved from their native Cherkasy, and therefore did not specify it in his income Declaration. Where did Gerashchenko, receiving 2 thousand dollars of the parliamentary salary, have money on a vacation home? Previously, she bought an apartment in Pechersk 145 sq. m in one of the most expensive houses in Kiev. Has overpriced the car “Lexus” with a price – from 70 thousand dollars.
Letki village, where the property is located is located about 40-50 km from Kiev, Brovary. Near the village there is a small cottage complex “Ivolga”. It lives Irina Gerashchenko. “Oriole” is the former Soviet camp, which was privatized by its current tenants. They demolished the Soviet houses, where rested the proletariat, and built their bourgeois.
On campus houses have no fences and it is easy to approach. The cottages are at a distance of 10-20 meters from each other and separated only by the green glades. Everything is neat and well maintained, there were only trees and a lawn that is intersected by tiled walkways. The impression that “Oriole” is such a small Park (square floor-Mariinsky), in which the houses are built with intricate architecture. Seeing them, you realize that live here are obviously poor people.
Cottage village surrounded by a fence. Protection two people. For them, especially at the entrance is a small three-storey house under a slate roof.
Asking Irina to take pictures of the house, one of the leading journalists of the media arrived at the “reception” and receiving “good”, the guard showed them the house. However, deceived, showing the modest two-story house, which, as it turned out, belonged not to Gerashchenko, and … Yushchenko. But not Viktor Yushchenko, but it was just a namesake.
The house Irina Gerashchenko – on the contrary” – he waved the guard towards the beautiful mansion.
If you walk from the entrance to the cottage straight for 150-200 meters, will reach three storey town house white in color (left side one of the walls made of gray stone). The third floor is a sort of attic.
In front of the house has a spacious wooden without glass veranda (instead of glass transparent shower curtain), painted in dark brown color.
Inside veranda table with chairs, a large pot with some or a flower, or bonsai, children’s rocker. There is also the entrance to the house.
Behind the house a small kitchen garden. Mom Ira grow there tomatoes and zucchini and squash. There (under the wall) neatly stacked firewood.
The realtor presumably to the question “how much can cost this house?” replied “from 500 to 700 thousand.”
And to the question “how did a simple MP that much money on a beautiful three-story mansion?”, Irina Gerashchenko said on Facebook that
I bought the apartment in the credit “Kyivmiskbud”, the state received nothing. And as for the house in the Calves, after the death of Pope begged mom to move in with him, but she didn’t want to. And only when sold near Cherkasy her cottage, and bought a house in Litky, agreed. It was demolished and built over a four year home. If the mother signs the house at her daughter, then Irina will make it in his Declaration.
