A multi million euro shopping centre in Ukraine that was once owned by Seán Quinn’s children but recovered by the State to pay his debts, has re opened for business as civilian life resumes in the war-torn capital city.

The Univermag shopping centre, along with a six-storey office block in Kyiv, were quickly boarded up after Russian forces invaded Ukraine on February 24. The buildings escaped damage from heavy bombardment as Ukrainian forces repelled the Russian army’s attempts to surround the city.
