Five companies took part in the auction, and the winner with a bid of UAH 20 million ($541,470) (without VAT) was the private enterprise "Ukrpromresurs-2008". The new owner has 20 calendar days to pay for the palace.

The buildings of the sanatorium are in a state of disrepair and have not been used for almost 20 years. The main building of the sanatorium is a cultural monument of local importance, which, according to the foundation, needs significant investment in restoration.

The winner of the auction must sign an agreement on the protection of cultural heritage and preserve its historical appearance.

The owner and manager of Ukrpromresurs-2008 is Serhiy Shvyrenko. The main activity of the company is wholesale trade in wood, building materials and sanitary and technical equipment. It also owns "Yurein" LLC (wholesale of products) and "Buskyi Rayagrobud Plus" LLC (wholesale of wood, construction).

The former Rzewuski-Lanckoroński palace in Rozdol was founded in 1740. After the Second World War, the "Rozdil" sanatorium was set up in the palace, which later became part of the trade unions' Ukrprofozdorovnytsia system.

In 2004, it was sold to the Kyiv-based Merezha Vidpochynku LLC for UAH 467,000 ($93,400), but the company failed to restore the sanatorium. In 2015-2017, Ukraine returned the sanatorium to state ownership through the court.
