Ukrainian Benefactor paid USD 350 thousand for Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator biker jacketStaff author: Adilia S.

Well-known Ukrainian businessman Oleksandr Yaroslavsky acquired Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Terminator” biker jacket, having paid whopping USD $350,000 at a charity auction. The starting bid was set at $50,000, reported.

The jacket, worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger during the filming of Terminator 3: War of the Machines, is now exhibited in the lobby of the Premier Palace Hotel Kharkiv, owned by Yaroslavsky. The first lucky visitors could take their photos next to the new exhibit at the “Terminator Party”, set up to celebrate the installation.

Yaroslavsky bought the jacket at a charity auction organized by Klitschko Brothers Fund.

Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko are famous heavyweight boxers and entrepreneurs. Vitali Klitschko is the current Mayor of Kiev.

In total Yaroslavsky, who is a former co-owner of UkrSib Bank and President of the soccer club “Metalist” Kharkiv, contributed around USD $3 million during the aution night, which is about 10% of the total sum raised at the auction.

Oleksandr’s brother Oleksiy Yaroslavsky admitted in an interview that their aspiration was to support children’s sport in Kharkiv. By donating to the fund, the businessman hopes to enable financing of youth sport initiatives in his home city.

According to Yaroslavsky, Vladimir Klitschko is going to ask Arnold Schwarzenegger to visit Kharkiv. He believes it will help to change the global image of Ukraine for the better. Some foreigners think that Ukraine is an unsafe place with lots of problems. The Ukrainian sportsman hopes that a visit by the famous actor could assist in helping foreigners to see the real Ukraine: a beautiful county where people live, work, and play.

Wow! It seems to me, that this guy is a very big fan of Arnold:) If I lived in Ukraine, I would visit this exhibition, cause I find it very interesting and maybe even historical thing. But here in Russia we have enough of Lenin!))


Gosh, really why people waste a lot of money for nothing even If I were as rich as this guy I would not ever buy some things like this. And it’s pretty ridiculous that Klitshcko wanna ask Arni to visit Ukraine, always insane positive mental thinking


I’ve heard about the financial problems in Ukraine, but if they can afford to buy such expensive things, and what’s about the crisis? Actually I understand that more Ukrainian politicians aren’t interested in better life of their nation. They have everything they want even Arnold’s jacket… And what’s about people?
