Ukrainians have been the biggest buyers in the London property market in recent years, reports The Independent.


Their property buying spree has outdone spending by rich Russians, Arabs and the Chinese. The individuals include Victor Pinchuk, who spent £80m on a house in Phillimore Gardens, Kensington, in 2008 and Rinat Akhmetov, who spent £136.4m on the penthouse at One Hyde Park, the Candy brothers’ development.
