Former Ukraine president Viktor Yanukovych evidently has more titles to brag about than "fugitive ex-leader" and "disgraced kleptocrat."
According to a rather elaborate Wikipedia trail, he's also a "professor" at the International Academy of Sciences, Education, Industry and Arts, which is registered to a P.O. box in Mountain View, California.
Aside from a one-sentence nod in his Wikipedia entry, little is known about Yanukovych's strange Bay Area connections. Local blogger SF Citizen published a photo of the shell university, which takes up all of 5 square inches of coveted Silicon Valley real estate.
Calls to the International Academy reached an anonymous voicemail, and thus far have not been returned.
Meanwhile, Yanukovych miraculously reappeared in Russia on Friday, where he held court at a press conference in the southern city of Rostov-on-Don. Dodging questions about his ouster and the immense fortune he pilfered from Ukraine, Yanukovych told reporters he was in Russia to "visit an old friend."
Such claims failed to sway protesters in Kiev, who overwhelmingly support the new opposition government. Yanukovych's political future looks grim. But he perhaps he still has a teaching job.
