"Ukrainian House" is the five-stored building in Kyiv, located on the European square. It was designed specifically to house a museum dedicated to Lenin. In 1992 the museum was renamed as "Ukraine House".
The building features some of the most unique Soviet stained glass in the whole of the former Soviet Union, and is one of the best examples in Kyiv of the futurist style of Soviet architecture.
The building was the Kyiv branch of the Central Museum of Lenin. The opening of the new building "The Lenin Museum" was held in 1982 and was dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the Soviet Union. Also it was the Prosecutor's office and the police department.
Today the "Ukrainian House" is a multifunctional complex, specializing in the organization and holding of exhibitions, congresses and forums.
It was the headquarters of Viktor Yushchenko during the "Orange revolution" (2004).
A reserve of the internal forces and the detachment "Berkut" was here during mass anti-government protests in 2014.
"Ukrainian house" was captured by protesters on the 26 January 2014, 4:06 Kyiv time. The building received substantial damage during the assault: broken glass, doors. Part of the first floor significantly damaged. The protesters reported that the Ukrainian house would be used as the press center of the protest movement.
