USD 200 million hidden on accounts of Ukrainian ex-officials

According to the data of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, USD 200 million are hidden on the accounts of the former officials of Yanukovych regime, included in the sanctions list, in the EU states.
Prosecutor General of Ukraine Vitaliy Yarema has said this in interview with nv.ua.
Other UAH 6 billion and USD 1.8 billion are in Ukraine. In addition, 11 land plots, six houses, including abroad, 50 kg of gold and precious metals wares have been arrested. The Prosecutor General’s Office intends to return these assets to the state, he said.
Yarema notes that 22 people are on the sanctions list, eight of them are wanted.
Explaining the reason for the slow investigation in the case against the regime of Yanukovych, he says: “Almost all criminal cases have evidence. The EU requires us to present suspicion of committing primarily economic crimes such as embezzlement of public funds. There are difficulties in documenting the involvement of these people in economic crimes. Therefore, investigators are actively working to find evidence.”
