Divers recover official documents from a lake at the opulent residence of former president Viktor Yanukovich. Local media is reporting that they believe someone threw the papers in the water to destroy evidence. The material retrieved from the water included lists of journalists. Now, journalists are pouring over the documents, searching for information about the Yanukovich administration's finances. The gates of the secretive and sprawling home were opened to the public Saturday after the former president escaped from the capital city and the parliament voted to impeach him. It was reported that Yanukovich left his residence on Friday evening for eastern Ukraine but his whereabouts are currently unknown. A warrant has now been issued for his arrest.
