The toilet would not be out of place at the property, though, which protestors discovered today houses a personal zoo and a yacht, among other luxuries.

Mashable's Jim Roberts tweeted the toilet photo, then apologized when it came out that it was a hoax.

Folks. I goofed. Please don’t be tempted by the too-good-to be true toilet photo. It’s not from #Yanukovych estate.
