VIP-sauna in tax police

There is the "closed" sauna in the building of Cherkasskaya tax administration on the seventh floor. Most ordinary employees did not know and did not hear about existence of this VIP-area.

The seventh floor was considered a "technical" area and was always locked. The deputy of tax administration leader had the key and gave it to a certain circle of persons.

Sauna was built by the former leader of tax administration Mr. Lubchenko. According to some information, the ex-head of district state administration Vadim Leshenko was hidden exactly in the sauna during orange revolution, when people held meeting in front of district administration.

The further lot of VIP-sauna under new power regime is unknown.
