The daughter of Kiev's mayor was alleged to have been robbed in Paris Monday of 4.5 million euros worth of jewels while she was being driven from the airport in a chauffeur-driven car. A mayoral spokeswoman has denied the robbery, however.
Kristina Chernovetskaya, whose father Leonid Chernovetsky is a banker and mayor of the Ukrainian capital, was traveling from Paris airport in a chauffeur-driven car when a man approached the vehicle and grabbed the bag.
The theft occurred around noon in Saint-Denis, a suburb north of Paris.
Chernovetskaya told police that the bag contained rings, earrings and other jewels worth 4.5 million euros (six million dollars), the source added.
