“The building in the neo-Moorish style was built in the center of Yalta in 1897 according to the design of Nikolai Krasnov. There were Roche's baths. After this mansion was given to her, she rebuilt it, almost completely demolished it, despite the fact that it was an architectural monument. She opened an expensive hotel there. I wanted to sell it last year for more than 2.2 billion rubles,” the interlocutor said.

The building needs to be nationalized, says Crimean senator Sergei Tsekov; he drew attention to the fact that Rotaru “more than once demonstrated her anti-Russian views” and did not support the reunification of Crimea with Russia.

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Community Vladimir Rezanov advocated for the house to serve the residents of Crimea and not sit empty: a registry office or a music school could be built there.
