Russian media report says Yanukovych seen in Moscow
(02-27 17:51)

A respected Russian news organization is reporting that Ukraine's fugitive president is staying in a Kremlin sanatorium just outside Moscow.
Viktor Yanukovych has not been seen publicly since Saturday. While the West has recognized the new Ukrainian government, Russia still considers him the legitimate president.
RBK reports that Yanukovych is staying at the Barvikha sanatorium, run by the presidential administration's property department. The spokesman for this department, Viktor Khrekov, told The Associated Press on Thursday that he has no information.
RBK says the information came from one of Russia's wealthiest businessmen and was confirmed by a government official, neither of whom was identified. The article was under the byline of respected journalists, including RBK's editor in chief.—AP
